What is a poorly lit studio and a hidden bun?
That’d be the question (well, technically, the answer) if Jeopardy contestants were asked, “This is what was responsible for First Lady Michelle Obama appearing to be bald on an appearance of the beloved game show yesterday, March 24.”
She was there to promote her anti-childhood obesity campaign, Let’s Move!, but viewers were more interested in her unusual hair than they were in solving her clues, one of which asked, “You can find it in a variety of dishes and foods like canned salmon because it contains tiny edible bones.”

Fans flocked to social media with concerns that the FLOTUS was suddenly without hair.
