gangster, gangsta, jeopardy
By Tony Tecate

A contestant on “Jeopardy” named Nick Spicher cost himself $3,200 on the show, because he pronounced the word “gangsta” as “gang-STER” with hard R.  And yes, he happens to be a nerdy white guy with glasses.

The correct answer was “Gangsta’s Paradise Lost”, which combines “Gangsta’s Paradise” by Coolio and the book “Paradise Lost” by John Milton.

He initially won $1,600, but then the judges took it away and docked him another $1,600, since it was now a “wrong” answer.  So, it was a $3,200 swing.

Luckily it didn’t cost him the win.  He ended up with $15,201 that night and won by about 400 bucks.  But he did NOT win again last night.
