Alex Trebek is trending on Twitter, which is scary considering his health and the current state of the world, but it turns out that it’s because of the savage move he made on a recent episode of Jeopardy!.

While asking the contestants about themselves between rounds, one of the women on the show described her favorite type of music to the television host. “Her favorite type of music is something I’ve never heard of, but it doesn’t sound like fun,” Alex started before the contestant gave her answer.

She said, “I think it’s very fun. It’s called ‘Nerdcore hip-hop.’ It’s people who identify as nerdy, rapping about the things they love. Video games, science fiction, having a hard time meeting romantic partners. It’s really catchy and fun.”

“Losers, in other words,” was Alex’s no-nonsense response to the contestant’s story.
