A great man once spoke about the “gaps” we fill in one another. That man was Rocky Balboa, but these sports-deficient Jeopardy! players might not even recognize him. A new viral clip sees all three contestants completely confounded by a football category, and Alex Trebek was not amused.
Alex Trebek is a cultural institution, a beacon of knowledge and grace under pressure. Everyone loves him. Which is why it’s always amusing to watch the unflappable host of Jeopardy say silly words and phrases in that reliable deadpan of his. A recent episode of the immortal game show saw him forced to say the name “Turd Ferguson,” which should amuse anyone with a passing knowledge of modern comedy.
If you don't watch 'Jeopardy!,' then you don't know that Alex Trebek can be a just a *touch* condescending to the contestants. Although to be fair, it's hard not to come across as condescending when you're basically telling people they're wrong over and over again for half an hour.
