Well... that was awkward.

We already know Alex Trebek thinks about nerdcore, but apparently, he’s not much of a Drake fan either. 

On last night’s Jeopardy, Drake was the answer to a $400 clue in the “Historical Acts” category, which put Trebek in the awkward position of rapping lyrics to “Jumpman.” Try not to cringe. 

That’s not even the worst part: According to Kathryn Stuart, who was watching to support her brother, returning champion George Stuart, Trebek actually re-recorded the clue—and Jeopardy aired the wrong clip. 

The whole thing makes Drake's appearance on Saturday Night Live’s “Black Jeopardy” that much funnier.

Alex Trebek savagely destroys contestant's hobby with one word
Alex Trebek was in truly rare form last night on Jeopardy!  We’ve already covered the show’s incredible Florida Man segment, but that pales in comparison to his brutal, awkward takedown of one of the contestant’s hobbies. In Trebek’s defense, the woman’s description of nerdcore—as accurate as it was—surely had most people watching at home thinking the same thing.
