  • Jeopardy! contestant mispronounces, loses $3,200

    In a hilariously cruel twist of fate on the show’s New Year’s Day episode, one contestant, Nick, chimed in quickly when the following clue popped up: “A song by Coolio from ‘Dangerous Minds’ goes back in time to become a 1667 John Milton classic.” Referring to the book Paradise Lost and the track “Gangsta’s Paradise,” Nick responded with the seemingly correct answer: “Gangster’s Paradise Lost.”

    Lol, I had this episode on the TV last night as background noise while making coffee and the Coolio question caught my attention just because it was about Coolio. Didn't pay any attention to the guy's response. Yeah, Jeopardy is way too anal about correct pronunciations. I've seen what happened to this guy happen many times before. I believe they invalidate misspelled answers on Final Jeopardy as well.
