We’ll take Dunking On Contestants for 200, Alex.
Just watch it before you scroll any farther:
The venerable host of “Jeopardy!” can, apparently, only be forced to give so many fucks in a day. On this day, Alex Trebek’s target happened to be Susan Cole, a legislative librarian from Bowie, Maryland, and nerdcore enthusiast. After calling her (and probably a large part of his own viewership) a buncha losers, he quickly came back with a “just kidding!” but man, the damage was done and the nerds are not having it.

Hey #Nerdcore fans!
Trebek was mean to Susan Cole & I hope he apologizes,
but we DID start the scene based on being losers.

Alex Trebek of #Jeopardy calling nerds "losers" is the STUPIDEST thing I've ever heard. Those "losers" GIVE YOU A JOB

Susan overcame this monumental diss to win $20,600 and the chance to defend her position — and the music she loves — again tonight (We will update this post if anything huge happens).
The man’s got snark, and wouldn’t you if you spent your days asking reverse-questions to glassy-eyed dorks on television? Behold another shining example of Trebek Owns: First he tells her that her last name means “ham” in French, and then moves to piss on her pygmy goat’s grave. The thing died eating a bag of quick-cement, so, she kind of earns it.
More insights from the Deadspin comment section: “I was on Jeopardy about 10 years ago. He’s short and too tan and wears sleeveless shirts to eat lunch. Real fucking jabroni.” Alright then.
Alex Trebek, you lost a lot of respect.
I gotta’ check you off the rip for coming outta’ your neck.
Talking sideways on geeks, man you a trip.
Guess you haven’t heard, nerds make up half of your viewership.
Nerdcore is home to some serious lyrics.
I’ll break this down in a format your familiar with.
This host gets roasted on SNL yearly.
Hosts a show for nerds and doesn’t know it, clearly.
No one likes a know-it-all, condescending blowhard.
It’s easy to be snarky when you’re holding all the notecards.
But Susan got the last laugh. 20 grand in cash.
And to go to all my shows, you don’t even have to ask.
Suck it, Trebek.
