Why Did Alex Trebek Call a ‘Jeopardy!’ Contestant a Loser?

Maybe Alex Trebek needs to take a day off.

The longtime Jeopardy! host is going viral after an incident on Wednesday’s episode in which he made more than a not-so-subtle dig at a contestant for liking “nerdcore” hip-hop.

And here you were thinking Donald Trump is the only well-known person who can get away with calling people losers on TV.

This is a cold burn that you simply do not expect from a 76-year-old man like Trebek, who may be a turd Ferguson joke away from snapping altogether. The ego for contestant Susan Cole who is a very nerdy-sounding legislative librarian may have taken a beating, but it wasn’t nearly as bad as the one she leveled on her competition — she was the champion, winning more than $22,000.

Now, that’s something to sing rap about.
