It's stuff like this, the particular way Trebek puts so much effort into saying the word "genre" that makes us like him. Also because Alex Trebek can be savage.

We've done a lot of Jeopardy! recently because funny stuff keeps happening on Jeopardy! This video is no excpetion. 

Lilly Chin, an MIT student on Jeopardy's college championship, shut down "Final Jeopardy" by declaring herself the "spiciest memelord." Honestly, if you come for the king, you best not miss. She didn't. 

All hail the spiciest memelord. 

Check out Lilly's ascent from Jeopardy contestent to the Spiciest Memelord.

I'm no expert on what is or isn't bae, but if Alex Trebek is rapping, does that make him "bae?"

Last night, during Jeopardy, Alex Trebek revealed one of the categories to be "Let's Rap, Kids," and the fact that he didn't turn his hat backwards and sit down on a chair A.C. Slater-style is a testament to his professionalism. Even more surprising, none of the contestants started vomiting. But did he become bae? 

Instead, we were treated to Alex Trebek reading Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Lil' Wayne, Drake, and Desiigner, which I think makes him bae. He did say, that "he's just getting into this rap thing," which definitely makes him bae.

There is exactly one famous hockey player. Two if you count Gordon Bombay from The Might Ducks. And that player is Wayne Gretzky.

So when you’re on Jeopardy, and Alex Trebek asks a question about hockey, don’t answer with players form other sports because that's probably wrong. Nay, that's definitely wrong. Let this video be a lesson to you.

Jeopardy! has been making quite a comeback in the past few months — what with Alex Trebeck rapping and calling his contestants losers and all. But last night, a contestant on Jeopardy!’s Teen Tournament took the gameshow back for the players.

During "Final Jeopardy!," the contestant, Sabrina, didn't stumble when she didn't know the answer. Instead, she shut Jeopardy! down with an Internet-ready response worth all the Daily Doubles in the world. 

Her response to the answer “Roughly half the size of Texas, it's the largest structure made by living creatures and can even be seen from space” was...

Forget that the answer is "The Great Barrier Reef" because this is all that matters now. 

And the crowd went wild:

Matt Jackson is the new Jeopardy winner and it has the creepiest smile.

So, there's a new reigning Jeopardy champion that is getting a lot of attention. Just not all of it for his smarts.

Uproxx introduces him as such:

Meet Matt Jackson, a 23-year-old paralegal from Washington, D.C. who is currently crushing the competition in a nine-day winning streak on Jeopardy, and likely not going anywhere anytime soon. In a profile posted to Jeopardy's website this week, Jackson says he was encouraged to try out for the show by his friend Sam Spaulding, who finished second place in the 2010 College Championship, winning $50,000.



But there's way more to it.

People are really drawn to the very creepy smile he uses during the introduction sequence.

It's kind of wonderful.

Look at it!



The Soup thinks it's really funny as well.



And on top of that, his signature celebration move is also a thing of beauty.



Here's Jeopardy's video, letting you know the man behind the smile.

It finally happened.

One brave (or stumped) Jeopardy contestant got Alex Trebek to say "Turd Ferguson" during Sept. 16's final round.

This is one for the ages folks.



Of course, she got the idea from none other than Burt Reynolds and his mastery of comedic timing and poise.



"It's a funny name."
