Alex Trebek Thinks Nerdcore Hip-Hop Fans Are "Losers"

Alex Trebek Thinks Nerdcore Hip-Hop Fans Are 'Losers'
It isn't uncommon for music listeners to hold the belief that their taste in tunes makes them better than others, and Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek only furthered that snobbery Wednesday night (October 12) in poking fun at a contestant on the show for her favourite music.

During the segment in which Trebek meets the contestants during the show, the host told Maryland librarian Susan Cole that her "favourite type of music is something I've never heard of, but it doesn't sound like fun."

Cole then revealed her love of "nerdcore hip-hop," explaining that it involves artists "rapping about the things they love... videogames, science-fiction, having a hard time meeting romantic partners. It's really catchy and fun." 

"Losers, in other words," Trebek replied, before saying he was only teasing.

Cole ended up winning the evening with $22,600 and will return for tonight's show. And while Trebek has certainly caught some flak on social media for his choice of words, we figure it's only because his cadence and flow isn't up to snuff as you can see below.
