Alex Trebek Burns Jeopardy Contestant for Her Love of Nerdcore Rap

Alex Trebek, a remorseless soul who has way too many random facts floating around in his brain, shamed a Jeopardy contestant for her love of a genre known as “nerdcore hip-hop” on Wednesday night’s broadcast. Susan Cole just wanted to go on Jeopardy and win a few thou, go back to the comfort of rapping about nerd stuff. Little did she know Trebek is a cold muthaf-.


During the introduction portion of the show, the shady Jeopardy host asks Cole about her favorite genre of music, which he says is “something I’ve never heard of, but it doesn’t sound like fun.” Nerdcore hip-hop. Cole responds, “It’s people who identify as nerdy rapping about the things they love: video games, science fiction, having a hard time meeting romantic partners. You know.”

Trebek comes with the burn: “Losers, in other words.” Damn, Alex.
