Zendaya deserves better.

“Jeopardy!” fans were up in arms over a misleading question about the Emmy-winning actress on Tuesday’s episode.

The Zendaya-related clue was worth $1,000 and read by host Ken Jennings to contestants Drew Basile, Staci Garner and Alan Elverum.

“Before somehow making tennis steamy in 2024, this single named star guested on Disney Channel’s ‘Good Luck Charlie,’ ” the clue read.

The first part of the question referenced her movie “Challengers.”

Garner correctly guessed Zendaya, 27.

However, fans of the show were not happy about the second half of the clue, since Zendaya — who is one of the biggest stars in Hollywood at the moment — only appeared in one episode of “Good Luck Charlie.”

The talent was best known for another Disney Channel show, “Shake It Up,” at the start of her career.

Fans took to X (formerly Twitter) to react to the question they deemed misleading.

“Watching #jeopardy when was zendaya on good luck charlie?!?” one fan tweeted.

“@Jeopardy just said Zendaya was on Good Luck Charlie?? The one crossover episode?” another person said.

One fan incorrectly claimed that the show “falsely stated” that Zendaya was on “Good Luck Charlie.”

A different critic replied: “The answer I saw said guested, not starred. She did have a guest appearance on ‘Good Luck, Charlie’ as her character Rocky Blue.”

Zendaya’s guest star stint on “Good Luck Charlie” happened in 2011, the year after she made her TV debut on “Shake It Up.”

The actress went on to star in another Disney Channel show, “K.C. Undercover,” from 2015 to 2018. Her most successful television project is the HBO drama “Euphoria.”

She got her big break in film in 2017’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” opposite her now-boyfriend Tom Holland.

In addition to the two “Spider-Man” sequels, Zendaya’s also been in “The Greatest Showman,” “Malcolm & More,” “Dune Part One” and “Dune Part Two.”

Earlier this year, she starred in (and also produced) “Challengers” with Josh O’Connor and Mike Faist.

The film centers around a tennis champion who stages a comeback with the help of his former tennis prodigy wife.

The week that “Challengers” came out, Zendaya admitted that she was “nervous” for the world to see her racy sports film.

“This is my first time leading a film in this way so ya girls been nervous,” she wrote on Instagram April 23, “but everyones excitement and encouragement has meant the world to me.”

The movie made over $94 million at the worldwide box office on a $55 million budget.
