JENNIFER Lopez and Ben Affleck fans were shocked when Jeopardy! dropped a clue about the couple in the new episode – which was filmed weeks before their reunion.
Ben, 48, and JLo, 51, were reportedly spotted at a luxury ski resort in Montana for a romantic getaway together earlier this week.

So it came as a shock to Jeopardy! viewers when the clue referenced their couple name, Bennifer, in an episode filmed weeks prior.
On Friday, May 14’s episode, guest host Bill Whitaker said: “As a couple, they were known as ‘Bennifer’.”
However, one of the contestants got the answer wrong, saying: “What is Ben Affleck and Jennifer Aniston?”
Fans freaked out about the reference to Ben and Jen’s relationship, with one person saying: “I’m pretty sure @Jeopardy called the reunion of @BenAffleck and @JLo – they were the answer of the “Bennifer” clue that aired tonight despite being filmed WEEKS AGO prior to their little romantic getaway. What a power this show has.”

Another added: “Excuse me but Jeopardy (filmed weeks in advance) manifested Bennifer 2021 AND their getaway to Montana with the clues that aired tonight!!!”
A third said: “not jeopardy literally opening with a bennifer question”
The couple became known as Bennifer after getting together in 2002 and got engaged the following year.
But they postponed their wedding in September 2003 just three days before they were due to walk down the aisle, then separated four months later.
Rumours are currently rampant that JLo is back with the newly single Ben Affleck.
The famous exes sparked rumors that they’ve rekindled their romance after they enjoyed a secret week-long trip together earlier this month.
Sources have claimed JLo and Ben are planning to meet up again soon.

An insider told People: “[Jennifer] is in touch with Ben every day.
“They are making plans to see each other. Jennifer is still very excited about how things are going with Ben.”
They added that the singer is currently busy working and “spending time with her kids in Miami.”
JLo is mom to 13-year-old twins Emme and Max – whom she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony.

JLo and Ben were spotted in a car together near a resort in Big Sky last week, where the actor has a home.
They were then seen arriving back in Los Angeles on a private jet over the weekend.

Sources claimed A-Rod thought claims JLo and Ben are back on were “fake news”.
An insider told E! News: “Alex may not be in the best position to judge, but he doesn’t think Jen is making a good decision. He thought the stories of Jen being back with Ben were fake news.
“Jen getting back with Ben, after all these years, and with all the heartache she went through, is the last thing Alex expected. [Alex] was holding out hope that Jen would take him back.”
