Alex Trebek butchers Drake’s ‘Jumpman’ on Jeopardy

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.
