'The Money Pit' Becomes 'Jeopardy!' Answer... Or Question
September 21, 2011 at 4:00 AM (PT)
"What is THE MONEY PIT?" The answer is a) it's a syndicated home improvement radio show hosted by TOM KRAEUTLER and LESLIE SEGRETE, and b) it was the correct answer (in the form of a question) on the episode of the syndicated television game show "JEOPARDY!" which aired on TUESDAY (9/20).
The radio show was the answer for a clue relayed by host ALEX TREBEK that read, "This phrase for a house that keeps needing costly repairs is also the name of a home improvement radio show." The contestant correctly answered the question (or, in more precise "JEOPARDY!" manner, questioned the answer), leading the show's syndicator, TALK SHOWS USA's SKIP JOECKEL, to note, "I guess that officially makes our radio show a part of pop culture!"
The show airs on over 250 stations. Reach JOECKEL at (888) 263-1050.
