Video | Jeopardy Contestant Loses Money For Mispronouncing ‘Gangsta’

On Jeopardy’s first episode of the 2018 season Monday night, a contestant’s mispronunciation of a Coolio song cost him $3200.

The man answered ‘What Is Gangster’s Paradise Lost?’, which was the correct answer and was awarded with $3200, putting him in the lead. Then later, the show’s host, Alex Trebek, announced that the judges had made a mistake. “Our judges have re-evaluated one of your responses a few moments ago, Nick,” Trebek said. “You said ‘gangster’s’ instead of ‘gangsta’s’ on that song by Coolio, so we take $3,200 away from you. So you are now in second place.”

The $3200 blow took him out of the lead, but luckily, the man was able to come back and win the game show.
