Trebek calls 'Jeopardy!' contestant loser for 'nerdcore' hip hop love

Postmedia Network

Alex Trebek didn't mince words after one Jeopardy! contestant tried to explain the type of music she listened to, which she described as "nerdcore" hip hop.

Susan Cole, a legislative librarian from Bowie, Maryland, broke down the odd genre, saying:

“(The genre features) rapping about the things they love. Video games, science fiction, having a hard time meeting romantic partners. It’s really catchy and fun.”

Trebek had a rather terse response: “Losers, in other words.”

Ouch.

To her credit, she survived his rather cold jab in good spirits - she ended up winning $22,600, way ahead of her two other competitors.
