In a crossover of worlds, WWE’s “The Man,” Becky Lynch, stepped into the realm of intellectual combat on the latest episode of “Celebrity Jeopardy.” The charity-based variation of the iconic quiz show brought together a unique trio of participants, including Lynch, “Home Alone” star Macaulay Culkin, and former “Saturday Night Live” cast member Rachel Dratch. However, Lynch, known for her dominance in the wrestling ring, found herself in an unfamiliar position as she set an unexpected record, making history for all the wrong reasons.
According to reports from “The Jeopardy Fan” X account and its corresponding website, Lynch’s “Celebrity Jeopardy” performance etched her name in the annals of the game show’s history. In an unfortunate turn of events, she became the first contestant in the franchise’s long history to provide zero correct responses throughout the entirety of 60 clues. With “Jeopardy” rounds typically consisting of 30 clues each, Lynch navigated through the initial round and “Double Jeopardy” round without a single correct answer.
In a somewhat redeeming twist, Lynch managed to salvage a couple of correct responses in the “Triple Jeopardy” round, a segment added to “Celebrity Jeopardy” in 2022. Despite her earlier struggles, she also successfully tackled the “Final Jeopardy” clue. Nevertheless, it took a total of 73 clues before Lynch could secure a positive score on the “Jeopardy” board.
The final standings reflected a stark contrast in fortunes for the celebrity participants. Dratch emerged victorious, banking an impressive $23,000. Culkin secured the second spot with $16,800, showcasing a commendable performance. However, Lynch concluded the game with $500, highlighting the challenging night she endured on the intellectual battleground.

For fans of Lynch, who has consistently demonstrated her prowess within the squared circle, the “Celebrity Jeopardy” episode provided a surprising deviation from her usual winning ways. Wrestling enthusiasts are no strangers to Lynch’s triumphs, especially considering her recent dominance on “The Weakest Link,” where she outshone her WWE peers, falling short only because of strategic decisions by other contestants.
Earlier this year, Lynch showcased her trivia acumen on “The Weakest Link,” answering nearly every question correctly and statistically emerging as one of the strongest players. However, the outcome took an unexpected turn as members of “The New Day” opted not to vote any of themselves out, ultimately leading to Lynch’s exit from the show.
As the wrestling community processes Lynch’s “Celebrity Jeopardy” performance, the episode raises intriguing questions about the intersection of athleticism and intellectual prowess. Lynch’s wrestling accolades remain unblemished, but her foray into the world of game shows presented a unique challenge. It also serves as a reminder that even the most accomplished individuals can face unexpected hurdles when stepping outside their comfort zones.
In the unpredictable world of entertainment, Lynch’s journey on “Celebrity Jeopardy” adds a new chapter to her multifaceted career. Wrestling fans, accustomed to her resilience and determination, will undoubtedly be eager to see how “The Man” rebounds from this unexpected setback, proving once again that she can conquer any arena, whether it be a wrestling ring or the trivia-laden stage of “Jeopardy.”
