Rob Zombie was recently featured on the television game show Jeopardy! – but as part of a question. Last year, the myths surrounding Zombie’s upbringing were dispelled, as his brother – Powerman 5000 frontman Spider One – revealed that he and Zombie “grew up in a household that was as normal as you could possibly have.” Now even more details have surfaced regarding Zombie’s past, and it’s all thanks to Jeopardy!.
On a recent episode of the game show, Rob Zombie was part of a question; specifically, the question was filed under “Transportation” for a total of $400. A television screen in front of the game contestants changes to reveal the following question:
“Rachel Maddow and Rob Zombie have worked as urban messengers on these.”
Well, can you guess what the answer might be?
Got an idea? Okay, here’s how it plays out.
One of the contestants speaks up and says, “What are bicycles?” – to which the answer is confirmed as correct!
So there you have it folks, not only did Rob Zombie not grow up as a carny, but he was also a bike messenger.
