"Jeopardy!" & IBM Man V. Machine Press ConferenceWhat is "Revenge of the Nerds"? That's what "Jeopardy!" host Alex Trebek is facing after casually dissing all nerdcore hip-hop fans on last night's show.

We should be focusing on raising up Susan Cole as the coolest legislative librarian of all time. She ended up slaying everyone last night, winning $22,600 -- and even Trebek said her game was "beautifully played." But before all that, she took one for the team during the usual get-to-know-the-contestants segment.

Here's how it played out:

Alex Trebek: "Your favorite type of music is something I've never heard of, but it doesn't sound like fun."

Susan: "I think it's very fun. It's called nerdcore hip-hop."

Trebek: "Nerdcore hip-hop?"

Susan: "It's people who identify as nerdy rapping about the things they love: video games, science fiction, having a hard time meeting romantic partners. You know. It's really catchy and fun."

Trebek: "Losers, in other words?"

SAVAGE! Some fans just laughed, but other proud nerds fought back in the best way possible -- through nerdcore hip-hop.

Here's a response from Megan Ran to "know-it-all, condescending blowhard" Trebek:

"Suck it, Trebek!" At least Susan is now welcome at all of his shows.
