Are You Smarter Than An American Idol Alum?

December 4, 2007 9:43 AM

Maybe we don’t need writers after all.

Because, really, can you script it any better than this?

Former “American Idol” contestant Kellie Pickler appeared on “Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader” and was just a tad stumped when asked to identify which country Budapest is the capital of.

First, she said she thought Europe was a country. Then she wondered if they spoke French in Budapest. And then she asked host Jeff Foxworthy if France was a country.

When the answer was finally revealed to be—you guessed it—Hungary, she was shocked.

She said: “Hungary? That’s a country? I’ve heard of Turkey. Hungary. never heard of it.”
