Hilarious: Jeopardy Champs Have No Idea Who Michael Avenatti Is

A trio of star players from the game show ‘Jeopardy!’ were unable to identify one-time Democrat presidential candidate Michael Avenatti in a clue at the Tournament of Champions finals.

And he’s a little ticked off about it.

The three players, which consisted of multiple single-game record holder James Holzhauer, the woman who beat him, Emma Boettcher, and Teachers Tournament champion, Francois Barcomb, a pretty solid group of intelligent people, didn’t have the foggiest notion who Avenatti was.

“This lawyer’s star rose while repping Stormy Daniels but fell after he was accused of trying to extort millions from Nike in 2019,” legendary host, Alex Trebek stated.

The response was little more than crickets chirping from the panel.

Trebek responded to the hilarious snub saying, “His name, you’ve quickly forgotten obviously, Michael Avenatti.”

Avenatti Fuming

Avenatti didn’t take the public humiliation very well. He responded to Steve Guest, Rapid Response Director for the GOP, who shared the video, by attacking him personally.

“This clip keeps getting better and better every time I watch it,” Guest joked.

“Says the idiot nobody knows of who will always be known as nothing more than a Trump sycophant spewing lies to keep a corrupt President in power,” Avenatti lashed out.


‘Nobody knows’ Guest but he’ll be ‘forever known’ as blah, blah, blah?

Guest responded in comical fashion, sending Avenatti a link to Donald Trump Jr.’s book ‘Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us.’

“Sounds like you need a copy,” he wrote.

Too Bad Don Lemon Wasn’t Asked

Avenatti was a frequent guest on CNN when he served the purpose of pushing the network’s narrative by fomenting lies about President Trump.

CNN’s objectivity was called into question in 2018 after the wife of contributor Errol Louis tweeted an image of host Don Lemon partying it up with Avenatti.

Avenatti was a major presence on every mainstream media network as he peddled in lies and half-truths on behalf of his porn star client. Nowhere was that more obvious than on CNN where he had been interviewed over 74 times in just a 10-week timespan.

If the ‘Jeopardy!’ episode had been recorded more recently, the contestants may have had their memory sparked.

Authorities dropped two charges against Avenatti on Wednesday but added another for honest services wire fraud in connection to allegations he conspired to extort as much as $25 million from Nike.

His trial is scheduled to begin in January.
