cheeseb "Puberty", I presume...
Anyhow, 12 isn't that far off the AoC in some nations, but yeah it's disgustingly low... 
So is 14, but that was the AoC in Canada for everyone for many years under the Liberal Gov't... 16 now thanks to the Conservatives. (yes, our main parties are literally named Liberal and Conservative...)

You'd think the contestant would have tried a different guess after the second time.

Considering America still has a problem with allowing men to marry young teenage girls and get them pregnant before the age of 16, without repercussions from the law. He isn't really that wrong is he?

In Japan the ages 13. With the Restriction that it's only teenagers involved.
In the country Yemen. The one  Trump banned for travel. The age is nine assuming you're married

dm2754 under sharia law AFAIK all sex must be between husband and wife, but you can marry someone and divorce them straight after consummation, so the marriage thing is not much of a "barrier to entry". So, yes, it's sketchy.
