That was highlighted this week, when a whole category was dedicated to Canada and how did the contestants do? Bad. Real bad. Watch the video above.

But it’s not necessarily their fault. The questions were hard-ish. I didn’t know the answers (or questions) to two of them. (You’ll have to guess which ones.)
