During a segment on last night’s broadcast, Trebek treated viewers and his contestants to a few bars off Drizzy’s “Jumpman, Jumpman” verse.
Drake was an answer on tonight’s episode of “Jeopardy!.” Alex Trebek rapped a part of “Jumpman,” from the Future collaboration What a Time to Be Alive, for the clue: “This Canadian rapped, ‘Jumpman, Jumpman, Jumpman, them boys up to somethin’/ Uh, uh, uh, I think I need some Robitussin,’” forgetting a “Jumpman” in the process.

Earlier this month, “Jeopardy” contestant Susan Cole flipped the script on Trebek after he clowned her for liking “nerdcore hip-hop.”
The long-time “Jeopardy!” host made his feelings about “nerdcore hip-hop” abundantly clear after contestant Susan Cole described her love for it on Wednesday night’s show. “Losers, in other words,” he said. But Cole had the last laugh on Wednesday considering she dominated the competition by taking home $22,600 to win the episode. That means she will return for Thursday’s show, where surely she and Trebek will have something to talk about. (Today)
The Cole-Trebek “nerdcore hip-hop” face-off almost immediately went viral.

Imagine finally passing the Jeopardy test and becoming a contestant and showing up and then Trebek’s all like “LOOK AT THIS LOSER."
