they interviewed Billy Wisse, Jeopardy's head writer. As you might expect, the subject was the venerable quizzer's occasional fascination with pop music.
First of all, I'm a little surprised that Jeopardy's head writer is named Billy. I figured his name would be J. Peirpont Peabody III. At least Billy doesn't pretend to be a hip hop fan. He admits his music of choice is '80s rock, though he's also partial to a country station in L.A.
Jeopardy puts their own twist on pop, of course. One clue in the Beyonce-inspired category "Becky with the Good Hair" centered on Becky Sharp from Vanity Fair. I doubt Beyonce has heard of her, but who knows for sure?
Alex reportedly likes Sinatra. That seems reasonable.
