    On Monday, Jeopardy! contestant Mazin Omer confounded viewers when he confused Oscar-winning English actor Michael Caine with Mick Jagger, the lead singer of The Rolling Stones.

    Omer selected the $400 option in the category labeled "Knight After Knight." The clue, which featured a photo of Michael Caine at his knighthood ceremony, required him to identify the person who was knighted under his birth name, Maurice Micklewhite, to honor his father.

    In response, Omer said, "Who is Mick Jagger?" prompting a slew of reactions on Twitter over the hilarious blunder. One fan even tweeted that the viral moment would "live on" in Jeopardy! fans' minds as a "historic bad answer."

    Omer, a biology student, ultimately took second place and received the show's $2,000 consolation prize.
