Fans tuning in to tonight's "Greatest of All Time" event on Jeopardy! knew they were in for a momentous occasion, though they likely didn't expect to see Ryan Reynolds appear to offer clues themed around his native Canada, but viewers certainly weren't complaining about the appearance. The series has regularly had famous faces drop by to participate, but the stakes of tonight's competition were already high enough for audiences that they didn't expect the quiz show to deliver any major surprises, resulting in countless surprised reactions swarming social media, with many fans even calling for Reynolds to become a permanent fixture of the program.
The night saw legendary contestants Ken Jennings, Brad Rutter, and James Holzhauer all going head to head to see who was, as the event implied, the greatest of all time. While this competition was more than enough to get fans to tune in, Reynolds' appearance was just the icing on the cake.

Just one criticism about tonight's @Jeopardy #JeopardyGOAT match, which was otherwise television perfection : When @VancityReynolds was reading out the list of Greatest Canadians, he missed one. #AlexTrebek, here's to you, sir.— segacs (@segacs) January 15, 2020
