Lord’s Prayer – Question Bowls Jeopardy Contestants

“Jeopardy!” fans were shocked recently when they observed that all three contestants failed to answer a simple question asking them to complete a line of the Lord’s Prayer, the most widely recited prayer in Christianity.

The puzzle, worth $200, read, “Matthew 6:9 says, ‘Our Father, which art in heaven,’ This ‘be thy name.’”

Contestants Suresh Krishnan, Laura Blyler, and Joe Seibert stood in silence, with none of the three attempts to fill in the blank, until host Mayim Bialik revealed the answer: “Hallowed.”

The moment went viral, with viewers on Twitter expressing their shock at the contestants’ inability to answer a seemingly common-knowledge question.

“Tonight’s Jeopardy! Contestants were just asked to fill in this blank: ‘Our Father who art in heaven, – be thy name,’” one user tweeted. “None of them even took a guess. I’m really surprised — I thought that would be an easy one!”

“How can those Jeopardy! nerds not know this answer. Have they never listened to Iron Maiden?” another wrote, referencing the 1982 heavy metal song “Hallowed Be Thy Name.”
