Alex Trebek is not a fan of what one “Jeopardy!” contestant called “nerdcore” hip hop.
Competitor Susan Cole, a legislative librarian from Maryland described the genre to Trebek as: “Rapping about the things they love. Video games, science-fiction, having a hard time meeting romantic partners. It’s really catchy and fun.”
But the game show host couldn’t disagree more, calling fans of the music: “Losers, in other words.” His stone cold delivery drew laughs from not only the audience, but Cole as well.
All’s well that ends well for the Maryland librarian, who went “nerdcore” all over her opponents and walked away with a cool $22, 600.
