mick jagger, wrong jeopardy! answer, michael caine

Mick Jagger onstage in 2016.

“Jeopardy!” contestant Mazin Omer caused people across the country to scream at their television sets on Monday after he gave an epically wrong answer to a question about British knights.

When Omer chose a clue in the “Knight After Knight” category for $400, a photo of British actor Michael Caine, 89, appeared. Host Mayim Bialik read the clue: “To honor his father, this star here was knighted in his birth name, so he’s Sir Maurice Micklewhite.

To which Omer responded, “Who is Mick Jagger?”


Jagger and Caine don’t bear much of a resemblance, so it appears as though he was thrown by the last name Micklewhite and thought that was a reason why The Rolling Stones singer may have changed his name to Mick Jagger.

However, Mick Jagger is the “Satisfaction” singer’s real name. He was born Michael Philip Jagger and he’s known as Mick, a shortened version of his first name.

Omer’s bungling of the question also inspired a whole lot of chatter on social media. A lot of folks couldn't believe that someone could mistake the two-time Academy Award-winner and star of classics such as “Hannah and Her Sisters,” “Alfie,” and “The Dark Knight” for the most popular rock frontman of all time.

Unfortunately for Omer, he didn’t win on Monday night. As reported by Last Night On, reigning champion Eric Ahasic brought home $26,800 while Omer narrowly beat Lisa Hernson for second place, $401 to $400.

Both Ahasic and Omer missed the “Final Jeopardy!” question, a clue in the category “TV Legends”: “Buster Keaton considered her the tops in her field &, in fact, was one of her early mentors.”

The answer was “Who is Lucille Ball?”

Things didn’t go well for Mick Jagger either on Monday night. The Rolling Stones had to cancel a concert in Amsterdam at the Johan Cruijff ArenA last-minute because Jagger contracted COVID-19.

"The Rolling Stones have been forced to call off tonight's concert in Amsterdam at the Johan Cruijff ArenA, following Mick Jagger testing positive after experiencing symptoms of COVID upon arrival at the stadium," the band said in a statement on its official Instagram page. "The Rolling Stones are deeply sorry for tonight's postponement, but the safety of the audience, fellow musicians and the touring crew has to take priority."

Jagger said in an interview with Rolling Stone that he’s fully vaccinated against the virus.

Get well soon, Mick!

As for Caine, last year he admitted that his storied career may be winding down. In an interview promoting the film “Best Sellers” starring Aubrey Plaza he told Vanity Fair that “I haven’t worked for two years, and I have a spine problem which affects my legs so I can’t walk very well.

"There haven’t been any offers honestly for two years, because nobody’s been making any movies I’d wanna do,” he added.

However, according to IMDb, he has two films that are slated for release in the coming months, “Now You See Me 3” and “The Great Escaper.”

How breastfeeding actually works is seriously awe-inspiring

Let's take a moment to marvel at this miraculous process.

A viral video shows what's happening beneath the surface when a baby breastfeeds.

Let me start by saying I don't care whether you breastfeed or not. Everyone's circumstances are different, no one needs to explain why they did or didn't breastfeed their babies and we'd all be better off with far fewer judgments across the baby-feeding spectrum.

With that disclaimer out of the way, can we at least all agree that breastfeeding is freaking awesome?

I mean, the whole biological process of growing an entire human practically from scratch is mind-blowing all by itself. But the fact that our bodies then create food to feed that human, with a whole system for how and when that food gets made and released, is just so cool.

Some cries for help can be hard to discern.

“I’m fine.”

How easily these two words slip from our mouths, often when nothing could be further from the truth. Sometimes, it feels safer to hide our true feelings, lest someone make a judgment or have a negative reaction. Other times, it’s a social rule instilled in childhood, perhaps even through punishment. Or maybe denying is the only way to combat overwhelm—if we ignore it all long enough, things will eventually get better anyway.

At the end of the day … it’s all about avoiding further pain, isn’t it?

But this denial can lead to even more suffering—not only emotionally, but physically as well. Everything from stiff muscles, to migraines, to digestive issues can stem from suppressing emotions.

Brandon Conway sounds remarkably like Michael Jackson when he sings.

When Michael Jackson died 13 years ago, the pop music world lost a legend. However markedly mysterious and controversial his personal life was, his contributions to music will go down in history as some of the most influential of all time.

Part of what made him such a beloved singer was the uniqueness of his voice. From the time he was a young child singing lead for The Jackson 5, his high-pitched vocals stood out. Hearing him sing live was impressive, his pitch-perfect performances always entertaining.

No one could ever really be compared to MJ, or so we thought. Out of the blue, a guy showed up on TikTok recently with a casual performance that sounds so much like the King of Pop it's blowing people away.
