Jeopardy!, an American game show, is a quiz competition that reverses the traditional question-and-answer format of many quiz shows. Contestants are given general knowledge clues in the form of answers rather than questions, and they must choose the person, place, thing, or idea that the clue depicts while wording each response as a question.

During the wager round of the game, the players were asked which nation has had a president since 2022 who has “taken so many foreign trips” and has a play on his name, “Ferdinand Magellan Jr” and the correct answer is the Philippines.

Following his feature on the American game show, the made up name Ferdinand Magellan Jr. became a trending topic on the microblogging site, Twitter, with some posting a side by side photo of Ferdinand Magellan, a Portuguese explorer and Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., the 17th and current president of the Republic of the Philippines.

Here are the tweets of some netizens:

Meanwhile, since taking office on June 30, 2022, Bongbong Marcos has traveled to nine different nations on ten separate occasions.

The President of the Philippines travels abroad to “foster and maintain” relations with other countries and to visit other leaders of state and/or government, according to the Official Gazette. These journeys are categorized by the Department of Foreign Affairs as either state visits, official visits, or working visits.

Among the countries he visited were Belgium, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Singapore (twice), Switzerland, Thailand, and the United States.
