Sometimes, nerves can get you on the Jeopardy! set.
After contestant Damien Shirley said “William Pitt” to a video Daily Double about the person whose visage appears at the top of Philadelphia’s City Hall, the City of Brotherly Love was none too impressed.
However, as The Jeopardy! Fan suspected, it was nerves and a simple accidental utterance of the wrong response.
Damien took to Twitter this afternoon to apologize to Philadephia:

While Damien finished the episode in third place, The Jeopardy! Fan hopes he enjoyed the experience of being a contestant!
