Oz in Jeopardy!

A fun category in the Jeopardy! round of the March 14, 2018 match was Perfect Responses for Jeopardy! because all the correct responses are already questions. And it's even Ozzy, because the $400 clue was:

Allison, the challenger in the middle, responded, "What is 'Why can't I?'" There then followed an amusing exchange between her and Alex about how you don't have to add "What is" to the front, as it's already a question. But that habit is too well ingrained in Jeopardy! fans and players, and they continued to do it anyway fro the rest of the category. Despite her Ozzy success, Allison never got into the groove, and finished in a distant third place.
