Aren't Jeopardy contestants supposed to be smart?

Kanye West's 2016 album, The Life Of Pablo, was debuted at a Madison Square Garden listening party, racked up huge numbers in both streaming and illegal torrents, and has created discussion over its perpetual status as a work in progress, but apparently this wasn't enough for any of the contestants on a recent episode of Jeopardy to know (or at least remember) its title.

Under the category "I'd like to thank..." the clue read "Kanye West for giving us so many different versions to choose from of this early 2016 album." Surprisingly enough, no one even buzzed in to take a guess at the title of the album, which to be fair, did see several name changes prior to its February release. Still, to the average rap fan, it would be a pretty east $600.

While it's disappointing to see that not everyone has heard the gospel of Pablo, we'd like to think Trebek is at least bumping "Father Stretch My Hands" on a regular basis.

Mike Dean posted the offending clip to his Instagram yesterday. Watch it below.
