Sometimes people can say the most shocking things. Other times, they can be speechless especially on national television game shows. "Jeopardy!" is known to have contestants that are just stumped by the simplest answers.

On a recent episode of Celebrity Jeopardy!, host Mayim Bialik posed this question to Comedian Patton Oswalt, WNBA Star Candace Parker, and Actress Torrey DeVitto:

In Field of Dreams, A Question Is Asked, "Is This Heaven?"---No, It's This Midwestern State Known As "The Corn State."

If you're familiar with the film Field of Dreams and Iowa in general, you would know this answer right away. This question seemed impossible to figure out on Celebrity Jeopardy!. Candace Parker and Torrey DeVitto were the only contestants who even attempted to answer this question. This video from an Iowa reporter on Twitter is painfully embarrassing to watch. I couldn't help but laugh!

Torrey DeVitto guessed that this state was Wisconsin. Candance Parker went a different direction and said the "Corn State" was Nebraska. Candance Parker's parents are from Iowa! Even Candance was disappointed with her answer. She second-guessed herself. Kevin Costner would have buzzed in right away!

I'll give them some credit...at least they didn't say a random state outside of the Midwest.  Here are some reactions on Twitter to these hilarious answers:

Iowa is not the only Midwestern state that has been featured on Jeopardy!.

13 Times Sioux Falls Made it into a 'Jeopardy!' Question

If the world was divided into Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune people, I would be down for Jeopardy! all the way. It's a lot more fun, it makes me feel smart because I can retain lots of trivia, and I am a horrible speller. So Wheel is out, no whammies.

Recently I discovered (I mean wasted a lot of time on) a website that is an archive of clues that have been on Jeopardy!.

While digging around the archive, I wanted to find out how often Sioux Falls came up in a question (Answer) on the show. Since 1990 Sioux Falls has been part of a question or an answer 13 times.
