Jeop­ardy! proves The Spectator has a clue

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

If you didn’t al­ready know, The Hamilton Spectator is of­fi­cially the an­swer. Or maybe we just have a clue? Well, we made it on “Jeop­ardy!” Thurs­day night, any­way.

The pop­u­lar trivia game show — you know, the one star­ring ev­ery­one’s favourite Cana­dian quiz­mas­ter, Alex Tre­bek — asked con­tes­tants Thurs­day to link news­pa­pers from around the globe to their coun­try of ori­gin.

Kirstin Cutts, a re­turn­ing cham­pion from Austin, Texas, earned $600 for cor­rectly guess­ing The Spec’s Cana­dian digs.

Lo­cal Twit­ter users gave the 170- year-old pa­per props for its, er, triv­ial mo­ment in the sun.

“Con­grats to the Hamilton Spec- tator for be­ing a jeop­ardy ques­tion!” tweeted Am­ber Mor­ri­son. “We’re on the map now.”

The Hamilton Spectator was an an­swer (worth $600) on Je­or­pardy. A con­tes­tant from Austin, Texas, knew the news­pa­per’s coun­try of ori­gin.
