Danger! attendees who were hit by the Ottawa clue offered free tour of the city

OTTAWA – To ‘Jeopardy!’ participants who were shocked by a clue about Ottawa have been offered a trip to the capital at all costs.

The two contestants whispered about the last Jeopardy track in Tuesday’s show, which asked, “An annual event called Winterlude includes ice skating on the Rideau Canal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in this city.”

The correct answer, of course, was Ottawa. And now Ottawa Tourism invites the two women to experience it for themselves.

“We want to show them what they may have missed,” Michael Crockatt, president and CEO of Ottawa Tourism, said in a news release.

Genesis Whitlock and Amy Schneider are each invited, along with a guest of their choice, to spend three nights in Ottawa during Winterlude.

The offer includes tour transportation, hotel stays, cash expenses and “selected activities,” the Ottawa Tourism publication states.

Whitlock is from Brooklyn, NY, and Schneider is from Oakland, California. Crockatt says Ottawa Tourism wants to “open their eyes to the wonders of the world’s largest naturally frozen ice rink, the incredible taste of BeaverTails and the compelling stories told in some of our country’s best museums.”

Winterlude runs February 4-21 next year.
