One of our favorite TV couples was just featured as a Jeopardy! clue!
On the March 29 episode of the popular TV game show Jeopardy!, there was an entire category dedicated to “Tough Guy TV,” which certainly describes plenty of the shows we love, including 9-1-1: Lone Star. So when our favorite first responder couple showed up as a clue, we were delighted!
“Tough on the streets of Austin, tender with his boyfriend, Officer Carlos Reyes is on this show with an emergency number in its title,” the clue read.
Unfortunately, there were no Tarlos fans among the players. One rang in and guessed “What is Reno 9-1-1,” leading to host Ken Jennings to laugh and reply, “No. I do like that show, but this is 9-1-1: Lone Star, very different vibe.”
\u201cWhat an incredible moment! @911LoneStar was the question to a @Jeopardy answer tonight !! Congratulations to the whole cast and crew but especially Rafael Silva and @RonenRubinstein for this huge honor! @FOXTV #911LoneStar \n\n\ud83d\udd17: https://t.co/UfBz2klnyi\u201d

Officer Carlos Reyes and his boyfriend, paramedic TK Strand, have been together on 9-1-1: Lone Star since early in the show. They met in the pilot when TK had just moved to Texas with his father and Carlos approached him in a honky-tonk bar and asked for a dance.
They became an official couple towards the end of the first season and moved in together in season two.
In the season three finale, TK took the plunge and asked Carlos to marry him. “For the first time in my life, the love that I feel is infinitely more powerful than the fear of losing it,” he said to Carlos. “And every moment that we're not married is a wasted moment, and baby, we only get so many.”
The current, fourth season, has followed the couple as they encounter pre-wedding bumps, including Carlos being previously married, TK’s dad trying to take over, and of course, all the natural and unnatural disasters that happen on the show every week.
