A feud between fans of popular US game shows Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune has been brewing on social media since streaming TV service, Pluto TV, launched a fan contest named Battle of Fandoms. In the bracket, fans could vote for their favourite show, and Jeopardy took the opportunity to draw fans to their side by poking fun at their rival. They posted a photo of a Wheel of Fortune puzzle, with blanks for the letters of “V_TING F_R JE_PARDY!” with the category What are you doing? Although the post wasn’t well-received by everyone, with some calling the post “petty,” others found it “savage” and expressed their allegiance to their favourite show. The competition results showed Jeopardy as the firm favourite, which progressed to the next round against BBC’s Top Gear. The popularity of the gameshow and hype surrounding the host schedule has been a hot topic for fans, with the revelation of the lineup of hosts causing division amongst viewers.
