ARMYs were in for a surprise when they tuned in to Jeopardy!
Jeopardy! is an American TV game show that has been around since 1964. It’s a staple of US pop culture and a family favorite. To win cash, contestants must hit their buzzer and answer questions in the form of a question: “What is ___?” or “Who is ___?”.
On November 21, this $2000 question popped up in the “American Music Awards” category. At home, ARMYs were most-likely screaming the answer before host Alex Trebek finished reading it!
For the clue, Jeopardy! played this legendary clip from BTS’s “DNA” performance.
Contestant Elise guessed correctly, without any hesitation, “Who is BTS?”. For fans, this brief moment is a meaningful one.
Who is BTS? This question, asked countless times during BTS’s rise to stardom, is now an answer on one of the most beloved, mainstream shows on US television. From rookies to icons, BTS truly have “paved the way”!
