Will Machine Gun Kelly (real name: Colson Baker) please stand up? During the Monday, December 27, episode of Jeopardy!, contestants were stumped when they couldn’t figure out the name of the musical artist.

“The stage name of this rapper and actor gets shortened to MGK,” read the $800 clue in the “Musical 3-Initialers” category.

Kelly’s photo from his movie Midnight in the Switchgrass was also displayed, but no one had any idea who he was.

“Not fans of Machine Gun Kelly, apparently,” guest host Ken Jennings quipped.

Some users took to Twitter to share their reactions to the hilarious moment. One person wrote, “Glad I got to see it when it was initially aired. My jaw dropped and I did kind of laugh haha,” while another added, “None of them knew him nor listened to him.”

A third person said that since the rapper has been dating Megan Fox since last year, that’s one of the reasons why he is popular. “If it weren’t for Megan Fox, I wouldn’t have known who he was either,” one stated, while another quipped, “Megan woulda got this.”

The actress and Kelly met on the set of Midnight in the Switchgrass last year. From then on, their romance blossomed quickly.

So much so, the “Wild Boy” singer took the role so he could meet Fox, who split from Brian Austin Green in May 2020.

“We were filming a movie [Midnight in the Switchgrass], which ironically the only reason I took the movie was because they were like, ‘Your scene is with Megan Fox,’ and I was like, ‘I’ll take the movie,'” he said on The Drew Barrymore Show. “I stayed outside the trailer, and my gut is always right and I’m grateful for it because for some reason I knew she would invite me for lunch. Then, all of a sudden, someone came over and was like, ‘Megan wants to know if you want to have lunch in her trailer.’ And I was like, ‘Oh my god, I’m so surprised. Yeah, absolutely.'”

And … the rest is history. Now, the pair aren’t afraid to show some PDA on social media. Recently, the two went viral for appearing in a cute Christmas TikTok video.
