Hitters fear the beards, and 'Jeopardy!' contestants feared this question about them

An episode of the Jeopardy! Teen Tournament on Tuesday included a category called "Sports Stars." One clue asked contestants to identify a 'fishy' Angels outfielder who won the 2012 AL Rookie of the Year. No player produced a correct response. How about this clue, which was included in the same category? Out of all possible facial features, would any of them be able to tell Alex Trebek the one that Brian Wilson and Sergio Romo share?

These whiz kids could probably tell you Strontium's atomic number or the capital of Cape Verde. But they couldn't tell you what's on Wilson and Romo's faces, either.
