A Jeopardy contest lost thousands of dollars of prize money after he made a slight spelling mistake.

In a broadcast aired on New Year's Day, Nick Spicher answered the double Jeopardy! question: "A song from Coolio from Dangerous Minds goes back in time to become a 1667 John Milton classic."

Quick to respond, Spicher immediately answer "Gangster's Paradise," which many believed was the correct response.

Despite the answer originally being accepted, the show's judges conducted a review of the call, and retracted their approval.

"Our judges have reevaluated one of your responses a few minute ago, Nick,” Trebek said. "You said 'gangster's' instead of 'gangsta's' on that song by Coolio, so we take $3,200 away from you. You are now in second."

Shocked face

Following the shocking blow, Jeopardy posted the cause of the game show's retraction on its official website.
