Alex Trebek Calls ‘Jeopardy!’ Contestant a ‘Loser’ for Taste in Music

By: Jon Corrigan

Alex Trebek is an absolute savage.

The longtime Jeopardy! host insulted one of the contestants on Wednesday’s episode, calling her a “loser” for having a different taste in music.

During the interview portion of the show, Susan Cole told Trebek she enjoyed a music genre called “nerd core hip-hop.”

Trebek, having no idea what that was, replied, “It doesn’t sound like fun.” So, Cole elaborated.

“People who identify as nerdy, rapping about the things they love,” the librarian from Maryland explained. “Video games, science fiction, having a hard time meeting romantic partners.”

Trebek paused before adding, “Losers, in other words.”

Like I said, savage.

Not to worry, Cole had the last laugh, scoring a $20,600 payday about 20 minutes later.
