Constance Wu may not have won Celebrity Jeopardy last night, but she did win the hearts of quite a few fans with her censored Final Jeopardy answer.
After beginning the night with a self-censored moment - Wu quickly corrected a "damn it!" to "gosh darn it!" after responding with an incorrect answer - the actress elicited a laugh or two from host Mayim Bialik with her inappropriate Final Jeopardy answer.
The final clue, "A New York Times headline about this disaster included '866 rescued,' and 'noted names missing'", prompted Wu to guess "What is the tit", an answer that got her a hasty "bleep" censoring from ABC. Holding back laughter, Bialik responded, "'what is the tit' is not correct."
"I meant Titanic!" Wu replied, after wagering (and losing) everything. "Some people call the Titanic the Tit. This is a well-known fact!"
Ike Barinholtz was the victor of the evening, but Wu's performance earned her some delighted responses from fans on Twitter. "Constance Wu was robbed," one wrote. "I love Constance Wu for saying "Tit" so many times on Jeopardy," wrote another.
