‘Jeopardy!’ host Alex Trebek had some blunt words on Wednesday’s episode for a contestant who listens to ‘nerdcore’ hip-hop.
Susan Cole, a legislative librarian from Bowie, Maryland explained to Trebek what nerdcore was by 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 wasted no time in paraphrasing for her in his classic deadpan tone: “Losers, in other words.”
Even Cole had to smile at his cold-blooded delivery as audience members chuckled.
Despite a laugh at her expense, Cole ended up having a great show – she finished with $22,600, destroying her competition.
