7 April 2015 / 1 year 6 months ago

Tom, a contestant on the 'Jeopardy' gameshow, blurted out an answer that made everyone very uncomfortable indeed. 

The video, uploaded on YouTube on Apr 4, has already garnered 1 million views.

Host Alex Trebek asked: "In common law, the age of this, signaling adulthood, is presumed to be 14 in boys and 12 in girls."

Thus, contestants are required to answer what they think "this" is. 

Tom answered: "The age of consent?"

The right answer was "puberty", and netizens have commented that it was "disturbing" he thought that the age of consent for girls was only 12.
