Gotta Respect This Jeopardy Contestant Who Flipped Trebek The Bird During An In-Game Interview For A Solid Five Seconds



The general public’s perception of Jeopardy contestants is that they’re typically lifelong virgins who have an extensive Magic: The Gathering card collection and a crippling fear of interaction with the opposite sex. The hard truth is that in life one has two options: memorize the Encyclopedia or get laid. Very few can do both because intricate facts about the ancient civilization of Mesopotamia usually doesn’t play well as a pickup line. Sad.

But, during Jeopardy’s annual College Championship competition, one contestant and Stanford student broke the mold of your prototypical “Teacher, you forgot to give us homework” nerdberger and displayed his bad boy side.

Viraj Mehta flipped off Trebek and the audience during his in-game interview while telling a riveting story about pizza. After watching the video below, it’s impossible to believe this was an accident.

The gesture did not go unnoticed.

Good on you, Viraj. Flip that prick Trebek the bird.

JK, Trebek, love you. And your mother.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
