Alex Trebek Completely Shuts Down 'Jeopardy' Contestant

Alex Trebek has been a staple in households for years. His calm attitude and ability to feign interest in peoples' mundane stories is second to none.

But it seems Trebek hit a breaking point earlier this week when he was chatting with a contestant.

Susan Cole, a legislative librarian from Maryland, began to tell Trebek about her love for Nerdcore hip-hop.

"It's people who identify as nerdy rapping about the things they love," she said. "Video games, science-fiction, having a hard time meeting romantic partners. It's really catchy and fun," said Cole.

Trebek seemed hesitant about this new style of music. His response? You'll just have to watch it to see.


DID HE JUST CALL A CONTESTANT A LOSER ON LIVE TELEVISION!? What the original poster cut from the clip, is Trebek saying "I'm just teasing, I'm just teasing." Regardless, this hilariously cold-blooded insult was met with mixed reviews online.

Some people thought it was hilarious:

While others found it completely uncalled for:


Cole ended up with the last laugh, eventually winning the entire episode.

Do you think Trebek's comments crossed a line? Or was the joke all in good fun? Let us know!
