WATCH: Alex Trebek Insults ‘Jeopardy’ Contestant To Her Core

As the longtime host of Jeopardy, Alex Trebek is known for being a prickly customer, especially when he doesn’t quite understand what the heck some of the show’s contestants are talking about.

Case in point: during the “get to know the contestants” segment on a recent episode of Jeopardy, a female contestant talked up her passion for nerdcore hip-hop, an interest that Trebek was quick to point out he’s never heard of and that it “doesn’t sound like fun.”

It gets better worse.

After the contestant explained to Trebek that nerdcore hip-hop involves “people that identify as nerdy rapping about the things they love: video games, science fiction … having a hard time meeting romantic partners … it’s really catchy and fun.”

Trebek’s response? Well, words truly can’t do it justice. This man is one cold customer!
