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.
Just heard Alex Trebek recite some lyrics from Jumpman……why ya'll make him do this?

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.
