Oh, how we laughed when Alex Trebek faced an endless parade of verbal abuse in SNL‘s mega-popular Celebrity Jeopardy! sketches. LOOK AT HIM JUST STAND THERE AND TAKE TURD FERGUSON’S ABUSE! Well, on the non-SNL version of Jeopardy! (civilian edition), Alex Trebek will roast what you hold dear with zero hoots given.

The clip nestled above features contestant Susan Cole chatting with Trebek during the standard getting to know the players segment. Cole’s bit of talk centered around her love of nerdcore. On the off-chance Trebek doesn’t make a habit of blasting Schäffer the Darklord in his dressing room, Cole provided a general explanation of the boxes “nerdcore” ticks.

“(The genre features) rapping about the things they love. Video games, science-fiction, having a hard time meeting romantic partners,” offered Cole. “It’s really catchy and fun.”

Trebek’s response was hilariously merciless and it’s best to let him deliver it. In case you were wondering, viewers definitely took notice. Reactions ranged from disappointment to delight with everyone agreeing that the dude is ruthless.

If you’re feeling bad for Susan Cole, there’s a silver lining. She crushed her competition and won decisively with a one-day total of $20,600.
