Alex Trebek is a lame duck host and he’s letting personality shine through a little more in this, his final season as Jeopardy host. Even fake Sean Connery might appreciate this loose-tongued Trebek, especially when he starts rapping.
Normally constrained by the Jeopardy format to a few quips with the contestants during mid-game, Trebek has always liked to throw his mimicry skills behind the occasional clue. Here he half raps the theme song to Will Smith’s TV star vehicle, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Not sure if Trebek’s version helps or hinders the clue, but the contestant nails the answer. C’mon who doesn’t know “yo, homes, smell ya later”?
