[b]Bald first lady? Michelle Obama’s 'Jeopardy!' appearance raises questions]/b]
By Judy Kurtz
An appearance by Michelle Obama on “Jeopardy!” had fans on Twitter scratching their heads, wondering whether Michelle Obama was sporting a new, hairless look on hers.
The first lady popped up on the long-running quiz show on Tuesday to promote her “Let’s Move!” anti-childhood obesity initiative.
In one clue, FLOTUS talked about rinsing canned vegetables to reduce sodium and how much Vitamin A could be found in sweet potatoes. But what many on social media up in arms appeared to not be nutrition, but an apparent lack of follicles.

Obama had also delivered a “Jeopardy!” clue in 2012. The White House and “Jeopardy!” reps didn’t return ITK’s request for more information about the latest appearance.
But ITK is surmising this mane mystery is more a case of a quirky camera angle and lighting than Obama opting to be the first first lady to debut a chrome dome.
The White House provided additional information on Obama's "Jeopardy!" segment, but didn't respond to a question about the "bald" buzz.
