Watch How ‘Jeopardy!’ Contestants React When Host Asks Question on ‘American Sniper’ Chris Kyle (VIDEO)

Alex Trebek, host of the "Jeopardy!" quiz show, speaks to an audience of primarily media about an upcoming "Jeopardy!" show featuring an IBM computer called "Watson" in Yorktown Heights, N.Y., Thursday, Jan. 13, 2011. It's the size of 10 refrigerators, and it swallows encyclopedias whole, but an IBM computer was lacking one thing it needed to battle the greatest champions from the "Jeopardy!" quiz TV show - it couldn't hit a buzzer. But that's been fixed, and on Thursday the hardware and software system named Watson played a competitive practice round against two champions.

From TheBlaze: Silence.

That’s how three “Jeopardy!” contestants reacted Friday when presented a clue in which “American Sniper” Chris Kyle was the answer.

The clue: “In 2015′s ‘American Wife’, his widow Taya talks about their life together & coping with his death at a Texas gun range.”

After host Alex Trebek read it aloud, the contestants just stood there quiet. Eventually the buzzer went off, signaling time was up.

“That man was Chris Kyle, American Sniper,” Trebek told them.


Kyle was a Navy SEAL credited as being the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history. He received multiple medals and wrote the best-selling autobiography “American Sniper,” later adapted into a film to the same name. He was killed in 2013 at a gun range by a veteran he was trying to help.
