Alex Trebek Calls ‘Jeopardy’ Contestant A ‘Loser’ [VIDEO]

By: Evan Jankens

If you have seen any episode of the hit game show ‘Jeopardy’ then you know that the host Alex Trebek likes to find out a little information on each contestant.

During Wednesday’s episode, Trebek decided to almost attack one contestant for what they enjoy with their free time.

The contestant described herself a big fan of “nerdcore hip-hop.” If you haven’t heard of it, it was described as,”people who identify as nerdy, rapping about the things they love, video games, science fiction, having a hard time meeting romantic partners.”

Trebek summed it up by saying, “losers, in other words.”


That’s is pretty harsh if you ask me. Trebek had no shame in his game. I would like to see what he does with his spare time.

Who else remembers the Will Ferrell parodies of Trebek from “Saturday Night Live?” Angry contestants like Sean Connery would call out Trebek and push him until he couldn’t take it anymore, with bits like this:

Sean Connery: “I’ll take the Penis Mightier for $500; Alex Trebec: “That’s the Pen IS Mightier!”

Alex Trebec: “The category is “rhymes with dog,” and the question is, “It’s been a Hard Day’s night and I should be sleeping like a …………….”
Burt Reynolds: Chinese whore.”

Looks like the parodies hit a little close to home.
