‘Jeopardy’: Ashton Kutcher Reacts to Being Mentioned in Question on Show

by Halle Ames

Save your awards and trophies, Ashton Kutcher knows what the biggest honor is as a celebrity, and that’s having your name featured on Jeopardy! 

You know you’ve made it, and life pretty much peaks when you hear your name on the hit game show. 

Well, between that and his Super Bowl commercial, I would say Ashton Kutcher has successfully conquered Hollywood. 

On last night’s episode of Jeopardy! Aaron Rodgers asked contestants a question regarding the 1990s and early 2000s sitcom, That ’70s Show. Ashton Kutcher played one of the main characters on the show, Michael Kelso. It was the first major role Kutcher had in the industry, and it quickly put him on the map. 

The question from last night came from the category “Counting On Television.” Aaron Rodger read that clue that stated, “That ’70s Show helped launch the careers of Mila Kunis, Topher Grace, and this actor who played Michael Kelso.”

One contestant quickly buzzed in with their answer of “Who is Ashton Kutcher.” 

At 9:20 p.m., the 43-year-old actor took to social media to share his excitement at being highlighted on the iconic show. Additionally, his wife in real life and girlfriend on the series, Mila Kunis, was also featured in the questions. 

Double whammy in the Kutcher-Kunis household. 

“Who is ashton kutcher? The only thing better than being in the NYT crossword is being a question on Jeopardy.”

Furthermore, according to The New York Times Crossword Answers (we didn’t realize people were this dedicated to the beloved crossword…) Ashton Kutcher has appeared on their puzzle. Again, the question had to do with That ’70s Show

The question simply states, “Ashton Kutcher’s role on That ’70s Show. The answer is “Kelso.” 

I guess that’s not the most challenging question the crossword has hit fans with, but I’ve never been much of a puzzle person myself. 

Regardless, Kutcher approached the shoutout. It’s like an actor’s version of being asked to sing the halftime performance at the Super Bowl…. Or something along those lines.

Giving Back

In recent years, Kutcher has starred in movies such as The King and The Long Home in 2017 and Artificial Selection in 2016. As of recently, he has taken a backseat from acting to focus most of his efforts on ending child trafficking and sexual exploitation globally. 

According to The Things, “In 2009, he founded the DNA Organization with his then-wife, Demi Moore. The organization’s name was later changed to Thorn: Digital Defenders of Children after their divorce. To date, he’s helped over 6,000 children.” 

Moreover, Kutcher has had quite a fulfilling life, even in his forties.
