Black Twitter Flips Over Vintage Photo Of Alex Trebek

A vintage photo of Jeopardy host Alex Trebek inspired some hilarious reactions on Twitter earlier this month. The image, which features a young Trebek looking like a Soul Train dancer, quickly became the butt of many jokes - and the object of many users affection. Black Twitter was nearly unanimous in recognizing the smooth-looking young trivia host as an African American man - or, at the very, least, an alter ego of Hall and Oates' John Oates. We've put together a ton of the best responses, but for more you can head over to the Facebook post that catalogued 'em all.

Jeopardy! has been making quite a comeback in the past few months — what with Alex Trebeck rapping and calling his contestants losers and all. But last night, a contestant on Jeopardy!’s Teen Tournament took the gameshow back for the players.

During "Final Jeopardy!," the contestant, Sabrina, didn't stumble when she didn't know the answer. Instead, she shut Jeopardy! down with an Internet-ready response worth all the Daily Doubles in the world. 

Her response to the answer “Roughly half the size of Texas, it's the largest structure made by living creatures and can even be seen from space” was...

Forget that the answer is "The Great Barrier Reef" because this is all that matters now. 

And the crowd went wild:

You may remember Alex Trebek teasing a contestant on Jeopardy by caller her and her "crew" of nerdcore rappers "losers" last week

Well now the nerdcore rappers have hit back with a dis track... so now everyone can decide for themselves if they are actually losers. 

Who's the real loser here? What do you think?

Jeopardy has had its fair share of strange and interesting contestants this year.

There was the contestant that got Alex Trebek to say "Turd Ferguson", Tom the super sexy contestant and Matt Jackson with his creepy smile.

But none has brought forth the wrath of the Internet like Laura Ashby and her interesting vocal fry.

Really, the Internet kind of hates her...a lot.

But at least she has a sense of humor about it. She's won over $36,802, and is still going strong.

Haterz gonna hate.

So, there's a new reigning Jeopardy champion that is getting a lot of attention. Just not all of it for his smarts.

Uproxx introduces him as such:

Meet Matt Jackson, a 23-year-old paralegal from Washington, D.C. who is currently crushing the competition in a nine-day winning streak on Jeopardy, and likely not going anywhere anytime soon. In a profile posted to Jeopardy's website this week, Jackson says he was encouraged to try out for the show by his friend Sam Spaulding, who finished second place in the 2010 College Championship, winning $50,000.



But there's way more to it.

People are really drawn to the very creepy smile he uses during the introduction sequence.

It's kind of wonderful.

Look at it!



The Soup thinks it's really funny as well.



And on top of that, his signature celebration move is also a thing of beauty.



Here's Jeopardy's video, letting you know the man behind the smile.
