On Tuesday’s episode of Jeopardy! contestants were speechless when asked by Ken Jennings if they could identify Jimmy Butler.
Since the competitors were stuck, Jennings gave them a hint: “Recently, this baller-barista launched Big Face Coffee and turned his new team, the Miami Heat, into a title contender.” When none of the contestants responded, he told them, “We were looking for Jimmy Butler.”
