It was a quiet moment on the Jeopardy! stage on Tuesday, June 14 when all three contestants on the iconic TV game show found themselves stumped as they struggled to solve a clue we Outsiders would solve any day!

On the Tuesday, June 14 Jeopardy! competition, one contestant, Barry, selected the $200 clue in the category titled “3 For The Show.” The clue that was revealed would have any Yellowstone fan jumping around, ready to answer and solve the puzzle. However, the contestants competing on Jeopardy! today don’t seem to be among the millions of viewers who tune in regularly to watch the wildly popular Taylor Sheridan series.

Jeopardy! host Mayim Bialik reads the clue for the contestants, “Kevin Costner, Kelly Reilly & Mo Brings Plenty Landed In Montana.”

Obviously, fans of the hit modern-western TV series know immediately what show this clue is referring to within the “3 For The Show” category!

Kevin Costner is Yellowstone’s patriarch John Dutton. While Kelly Reilly is everyone’s favorite unapologetic bad a** and John Dutton’s daughter, Beth Dutton. And, Mo Brings Plenty, fans know, portrays Mo in the popular series.

However, the Jeopardy! players didn’t have a clue. Not one of the three players standing on the stage competing today buzzed in with an answer. Finally, just after the buzzer sounds, Mayim Bialik reveals the answer: Yellowstone.

Take a look at the episode below, and check it out for yourself. The question comes up just after the 3:32 mark.
