Fans of Diana Ross do no play when it comes to her age.
A contestant on a recent episode of Jeopardy! quickly learned this when many people came to the Motown singer’s defense after her age was guessed wrong on the show — again.
As Decider reports, the incorrect answer about Ross’ age was delivered during Jeopardy‘s “A Number Between 1 and 100” category, when competitor Jake Marvin managed to age Ross by over a decade with his wrong reply.
In response to the clue “Your standard phonograph record until the 1950s, or the age Diana Ross turned in 2022,” Marvin answered 90, which many viewers took offense to seeing as the legendary singer is only 78 years old.
This is the third 'Jeopardy!' contestant to guess that Diana Ross is older than she really is and fans are not happy.
"#Jeopardy contestants, I thought we'd established that Diana Ross is not in her nineties," someone tweeted.
"#Jeopardy contestants, you all are gonna stop guessing Diana Ross is 90!! She said don't play with her!" another user commented
"This clue made me so scared I was wrong, and I'm not even playing! I might have been like, "45, but she doesn't look a day over 33?" Diana Ross needs to appear on Celebrity Jeopardy! and remind us all of her actual age," another wrote.
