In what made for one very awkward game-show moment, Jeopardy contestant Tom blurted out an answer he probably regretted immediately. Host Alex Trebek said, "In common law, the age of this, signaling adulthood, is presumed to be 14 in boys and 12 in girls." Tom replied, "What is the age of consent?" Ouch. (The correct answer? Puberty.) Tom's unfortunate response ended up trending on Twitter, and a clip of the awkward moment quickly went viral.
