Alex Trebek has been the distinguished host of Jeopardy! since 1984, but did you know he's also capable of delivering a burn so sick it could send you to the ER?
During the interview portion of the Oct. 12, 2016, episode, contestant Susan Cole discussed her penchant for nerdcore hip-hop. She said the raps are about things like "video games, science-fiction, [and] having a hard time meeting romantic partners." Trebek was not impressed.
Alex Trebek called this lady (and her friends) a loser on 👏 national 👏 television.
People were surprised and a little offended by Trebek's epic diss, which was unprecedented in its savageness.
Nerdcore hip-hop artist Mega Ran even posted a rap on Twitter to defend Cole and the music form.
Jeopardy! has had its fair share of awkward moments (I mean, hello, every contestant on the show probably calls themselves some kind of nerd or geek), but this was in a league of its own.
Anyway, Cole nervously laughed it off and Trebek clarified that he was just teasing, so she didn't have to go all Sean Connery on him.
Plus, she went on to win the episode! Don't let Trebek bring you down, Susan.
