Jeopardy! isn't exactly a show you'd watch to see people get schooled on rap lyrics, but that's exactly what happened during the Jan. 1 episode.
Nick Spicher was just trying to answer a question in the "Music & Literature Before & After" category, when he made the grave mistake of calling Coolio's classic 1995 song "Gangster's Paradise" instead of "Gangsta's Paradise."
Initially, his response was accepted as correct, but a few minutes later, Alex Trebek brought down the hammer of justice: Spicher's mistake cost him $3,200.
Anyway, people had some strong feelings about Spicher's costly error.
All’s well that ends well, though, because Spicher ended up winning the game anyway.
