Alex Trebek Hates Women

Posted By on Thu, Feb 11, 2010 at 1:32 PM

We're currently in the middle of "College Championship" week on Jeopardy, which I always thoroughly, thoroughly enjoy because the questions are way easier than they are on regular Jeopardy. On last night's episode, during the part when Alex Trebek goes over to get a few tidbits about the personal lives of the contestants, a young woman named Lindsay, who attends the University of Missouri, shared a nice little story about how the movie Almost Famous made her want to be a music journalist, just like William Miller. Without missing a beat, Trebek was like, "Oh, so you want to be a groupie?" When Lindsay awkwardly explained that, no, she wanted to be, you know... a journalist, Trebek shrugged it off, mouthing to the camera once again, "a groupie." Apparently things got even worse during the Double Jeopardy round—which I missed because I decided to watch Extra or something—when she proved that she did actually know a thing or two about music. Occasional L Magazine contributor Jessica Suarez points out, via Twitter, "Wow she just swept the 'band names' category and Alex said, 'Remember what i said earlier.'" So yes, remember: if you're a woman and you say you want to be a music journalist, Alex Trebek assumes what you really mean is that you are a filthy slut.
