Horrors: Jeopardy Contestant Mixes up Iggy Azalea and Azealia Banks


This Jeopardy contestant tried. He really did try.

But when Alex Trebek called on him to offer the answer in the form of a question to “This Australian hip-hopper used the pet name/street name system to come up with her rap name,” poor Nicholas Berube failed miserably.

“Who is Azealia Banks?” he said. Oh Nicholas. No, no, no, nooooooo. ::cue the sound of a millions of voices suddenly crying out in terror::

But the best part about this flub is how adorably apologetic Berube is over the whole thing. According to Time, he made a Twitter account strictly for the sole purpose of explaining the mistake.

This is officially my new favorite Jeopardy contestant. Sorry Arthur Chu. We had a good run.
