While the show is filmed weeks in advance, and during the Friday night (May 14) show, a clue about Jennifer and Ben was the first answer the contestants had to answer.
“As a couple, they were known as ‘Bennifer’,” the answer read on the giant board.
But that’s not all, not only were Jennifer and Ben the very first clue, in Double Jeopardy, there was an entire category dedicated to Montana.
“As a couple, they were jointly known as ‘Bennifer’” IS #JEOPARDY MISS CLEO AND/OR TROLLING US ALL?! Also can’t believe the guy got it wrong. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. Iconic couple,” one fan reacted to the clue on Twitter.

Bennifer as an answer tonight on #Jeopardy just another example of how damn prescient the clue writers are when writing for episodes that will air months after they’re taped
