Looks like you’re out of luck if you’ve been brushing up on your nerdy trivia in the hopes of impressing Alex Trebek. You’ll find this response if you check out the FAQs on the Jeopardy website about becoming a contestant:
“ARE CANADIANS ELIGIBLE TO TAKE THE TEST? At this time we are precluded from accepting registration information from Canadian residents. We are currently evaluating this matter.”
There’s no official statement on WHY they can’t accept Canucks, but there’s talk it might have something to do with Canada’s anti-spam legislation that was passed in 2014. Hopefully it’s cleared up soon and we can get back to brushing up on our potent potables!
