The moment happened on Wednesday's episode when contestant Luigi de Guzman answered a question under the "Cons" category. A painting was shown on the screen with the clue: "Here's a typical early 19th-century landscape by this British painter.""Who is Constant?" de Guzman answered."Say it again," Jennings, 48, replied."Sorry, who is Constable?" de Guzman responded.
