JEOPARDY! fans were shocked after reigning champion Jackie Kelly LOST on the "easiest question ever."
Many fans online – but only ONE contestant and new winner Evan Roberts – knew the correct Final Jeopardy.
Fans could not believe Jackie, a poised Cary, North Carolina-based Pension Calculation Developer, going strong on a four-day winning streak, lost.
The calm contestant went into Final Jeopardy in the lead but was upstaged on a question that she incorrectly answered as "Radio City."
The question asked the location in which Rockette-style kick lines in front of police took place.
Throngs of fans apparently knew the answer was Stonewall Inn – but only ONE person on stage did; new winner Evan.

While a fifth noted on the milestone event: “Stonewall was the answer to today's final jeopardy, on Trans Visibility Day. Whether or not it was a coincidence is cool w me.”
Stonewall Inn is a gay bar and National Historic Landmark; the site of the 1969 riots that launched the gay rights movement – the bar is still open today.
Evan, a Kentucky-based Chemistry teacher, was the only one to concoct the correct answer.
Even host Mayim Bialik took a moment to speak on the "easy" answer.
"How can only a single adult Jeopardy contestant know about Stonewall? Although, I'm not entirely shocked Jackie didn't know it. She made an impressive run regardless," another user wrote.
"I mean I’m pretty stupid and even I knew that was Stonewall," wrote yet another.
WINNING STREAK OVER
Jackie entered March 30th's Jeopardy! with $91K in winnings and ended the show the victor with $115K.
On Wednesday fans lauded the way she "calmly" crushed the Daily Double.
When asked by host Mayim Bialik what she'd wager midway through, she gently responded: "All of It."
One fan wrote to Twitter: "I really appreciate how calmly Jackie has been dominating on #Jeopardy"
She was one game away from a Tournament of Champions bid.
Mayim Bialik is hosting Season 38 of the storied game show when former contestant Ken Jennings isn't filling in.
