The hit game show "Jeopardy" is not exactly known for it's scandals, but the show recently found itself in hot water after featuring a category called "What Women Want," which some viewers found sexist.

The category spotlighted clues featuring female stereotypes, such as "Some help around the house; Would it kill you to get out the Bissell Bagless Canister one of these every once in a while?" and "A pair of jeans that fit well, like the 525s from this brand."

Social media exploded after the category was feature on a show this week.

Today.com noted that "What Women Want" isn't a bad idea for a category, but the "answers" indicated that ladies really just want jeans, exercise and someone to help them vacuum.
