None of the contestants on Jeopardy were able to identify Stephen Harper as the answer to a question on Thursday night's show.

We know Americans aren't always experts when it comes to Canada, but we expect more from Jeopardy contestants.

On Thursday night's show, none of the competitors were able to identify Canada's Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

The question (or answer if you're picky) was: "At a 2009 black tie gala, Yo-Yo accompanied this prime minister of Canada, who sang 'With a Little Help from My Friends.'"

If you're Canadian, there is little hope you've managed to forget (no matter how hard you've tried) this musical moment. Americans? A different story.

This isn't the only Canadian fail on Jeopardy in recent memory. Watson, the IBM supercomputer who easily bested champion Ken Jennings, made headlines last year with his final answer on the show.

The category was U.S. cities, but Watson answered "Toronto" to a question on an airport named after a Second World War hero.

This also isn't the first time contestants have been asked about a Canadian PM. But in the past they usually answered correctly.
