Jeopardy Contestant Loses $3,200 After Mispronouncing Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise"

January 3, 2018

DANG! Alex Trebek don't play! This might be a first in Jeopardy history.

Contestant Nick lost $3,200 on a technicality. When asked the question, "A song by Coolio from 'Dangerous Minds' goes back in time to become a 1667 John Milton classic." The answer...Gangsta's Paradise.

Unfortunately, Nick said Gangster's Paradise with a hard R. After moving on to another question, the judges ultimately decided the answer was incorrect and took back the $3,200 from Nick, which took him out of the lead.

Ouch! That's gotta hurt.
