Watch Alex Trebek Deduct Points From A Contestant For Answering 'Gangster’s Paradise’ Not ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’

During the first “Jeopardy!” episode of 2018, a contestant mispronounced the title of the Coolio song “Gangsta’s Paradise”, costing him $3,200. For $1,600 contestants were given the Double Jeopardy! clue, “A song by Coolio from ‘Dangerous Minds’ goes back in time to become a 1667 John Milton classic.” The category was “Music & Literature Before & Afters”, a common theme on the show requiring contestants to link two separate titles by a common word. Contestant Nick Spicher buzzed in with the confident answer, “What is Gangster’s Paradise Lost?”, which pushed him to first place with $11,200. Shortly after Alex Trebek revoked these points won, plus the penalty Spicher should have received from answering incorrectly. After re-evaluating Spicher’s answer, the judges decided that it was incorrect because he said “gangster’s” instead of “gangsta’s” for Coolio’s song. “Jeopardy!” later explained that each answer is “reviewed at the Judges’ Table during live gameplay to ensure that it is complete and accurate.” Fortunately, this mistake didn’t cost Spicher the game, because he soon won the competition for the evening.

Rock icon David Crosby is not one to mince words - even when criticizing himself, which is a recurring theme in the new documentary 'David Crosby: Remember My Name.'

So far, the doc has received excellent reviews from critics who find his frankness refreshing in an age when so many public figures are afraid to go off script and drop their filters. "Nobody does that anymore," Crosby told Civilized.
