Oz in Jeopardy!

Another Oz clue on a recent episode of Jeopardy!, plus one qu-Oz-i-related clue. Going back to last Thursday's episode, one of the categories in the Jeopardy! round was A Killee's Heels, about the feet of characters who were killed in movies. (Why, no, this category doesn't come up very often, why do you ask?) The $400 clue proved to be:

Katie, the challenger in the middle, rang in first and responded, "Who is the Wicked Witch?" Alex asked, "Which one?" and Katie clarified her response with, "Who is the Wicked Witch of the East?"

After the break, the first category in the Double Jeopardy! round was Country Music Movers & Shakers, which had this clue for $1200:

This time it was Megan, the challenger on the right and a big country music fan, who rang in first, and she said, "Who is Carrie Underwood?" That may not sound very Ozzy, but have you seen the video for "Blown Away" recently? Here, let me remind you:
In the end, Katie won the game. Poor Jerome, the defending champion, didn't stand a chance against those two.

Jeopardy! is running its annual Teen Tournament right now, and then that's it for the season, as it takes a few weeks off to show some reruns. This could, therefore, be the last Oz clue of the year. But it shows up often enough, you never know!

I'm not sure Ruth Plumly Thompson would have correctly identified which witch it was.
