Robin Bombs on ‘Celebrity Jeopardy’

Howard started off the show noting that Robin had bombed on ‘Celebrity Jeopardy’ – even bombing the ‘radio’ category. A caller was shocked: “Robin, I was gonna ask if your buzzer was broken but someone might’ve spiked your green drink.” Howard said he could barely watch Robin fail to answer question after question: “It was ridiculous. You’re staring into the lights.”

Robin laughed that she did so poorly, they even stopped taping so a technician could check to see that her buzzer was working properly – but took all the blame herself: “Look. It was obvious who was having the problem.” Howard joked that Alex Trebek should’ve told her: “Robin, maybe you should attend one of those schools you’re building in Guatemala.”

‘True Blood’ Crush

Robin said she saw actor Sam Trammell (shapeshifter ‘Sam Merlotte’ on HBO’s ‘True Blood’) on the plane back from ‘Celebrity Jeopardy’: “And I think we had a moment.” Robin explained that they’d bumped into each other as they were disembarking: “And he said, ‘I’m sorry baby.'” Howard asked why she didn’t pull him into the nearest restroom like she had with a date in San Francisco, so Robin laughed: “I froze! I was like, ‘Wow.’ I almost fainted he’s so cute.”
