Alex Trebek proudly read out the lyrics to Megan Thee Stallion’s No. 1 hit “Savage” for a Jeopardy! clue, and just like the original song, the remix is already here.
When contestant Daniel Lee, an orthopedic surgeon from South Pasadena, Calif., picked the $1,000 answer in the “On the Billboard Charts in 2020″ category, Trebek packed some extra oomph in his voice when reading “classy, bougie, ratchet” and “sassy, moody, nasty.” Luckily, Lee got the right answer after Trebek glared at him for saying, “What is ‘I’m a Savage’?” before eventually stating, “What is ‘Savage’?”
Now, a Twitter user has remixed the 80-year-old TV host’s clue to sound like the song’s chorus. And yes, Trebek even says the word “bitch” from a clip of him reading out a Walkman clue.
Trebek has been polishing his rapping skills over the years, after delivering famous bars from Drake’s “Started from the Bottom,” Kanye West’s “Famous,” Desiigner’s “Panda,” Lil Wayne’s “6 Foot 7 Foot” and Kendrick Lamar’s “m.A.A.d. City” back in 2017. And he’s familiar with the “Don’t Stop” rapper after she first appeared as a clue in October 2019 when he read, “Oddly, female rapper Megan Pete calls herself ‘Megan Thee’ this word for a male horse.”
