Don't tell Canada's smartest person, he won't like it at all

When it comes to appearing on the popular game show Jeopardy, Canadians need not apply.

The show's website includes a question in its FAQ section on whether Canadians are eligible to take the contestant test.

The website says the show is currently "precluded from accepting registration information from Canadian residents."

It goes on to say the show is evaluating the matter but does not indicate why.

Media reports quote the show's producers as saying the problem is due to international laws governing how information is shared over the Internet.

The longtime host of Jeopardy, Alex Trebek, is a Canadian, born and raised in Sudbury, Ont.

With all the illegal activity that is world wide on the internet, not allowing Canadians to voluntarily register to be on a TV game show for some privacy issue is absolutely ludicrous!

Apperently they're worried about contacting us due to anti-spam laws, though for them to contact you, you would have had to applied in the first place = implied consent imo...
