Ethan Couch, the notorious “affluenza teen” from Burleson, Texas, once again had his name on the national television stage Thursday evening.

This time, though, it wasn’t for an international manhunt or his lawyers’ latest plot to get him released from jail.

Couch was a clue on the game show Jeopardy!

‘Affluenza’ teen Ethan Couch was busted in Mexico after cops traced a call to this pizza chain (but didn’t arrive in 30 minutes),” the clue read.

The first contestant guessed incorrectly, but the second contestant got it right.

The answer, of course, is Domino’s. Couch and his mom, Tonya, were found and detained in December 2015 after calling for a Domino’s pizza in the resort city of Puerto Vallarta.
