‘Celebrity Jeopardy!’s’ ‘easiest final question’ failed by ‘Sex and the City’ star Cynthia Nixon


Close, but no cigar. 

Cynthia Nixon, known for her role in “Sex and the City,” flubbed on the final question in “Celebrity Jeopardy!” Wednesday night. 

While the “And Just Like That” star was up against celebrity contestants Cedric The Entertainer and comedian Heather McMahan, she risked a large chunk of her winnings during the Final Jeopardy round.

Cedric and Heather both guessed “The Pentagon” correctly and increased their scores during the final “Celebrity Jeopardy!” round.

“It all depends on Cynthia’s response. Did she come up with the Pentagon?” co-host Ken Jennings said.

Cynthia’s answer revealed, “VA Hospital,” as she shrugged off her incorrect response and wagered $11,501 from her previous score of $19,700. 

Her loss brought her down to $8,199 as Heather walked away with $20,600 for her correct answer and advanced to the “Celebrity Jeopardy!” semi-finals.

“How did #cynthianixon just answer the easiest final #jeopardy question in history incorrectly? #celebrityjeopardy,” one comment read on X, formerly known as Twitter. 

Another read, “Just got the Celebrity Jeopardy final question correct before even hearing the question.”
