The Walking Dead made a surprising appearance on Jeopardy last week!

The final question? “George Romero declined to direct a few episodes of this series, calling it ‘basically… just a soap opera.’”

Obviously, to all of us, the answer couldn’t be clearer: “What is The Walking Dead?” Even if you’re not a Walking Dead fan, George Romero is a legend in the zombie genre. Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead… perhaps something else “Dead” would fit?

However, not everyone could put the two things together. One contestant, focusing on the ‘soap opera’ element, guessed “The Bachelor.”

And, most importantly, he bet $9,000 on it.

Ouch.

Hat tip to Undead Walking for this tidbit!
