Last night’s (Jan. 1) episode of Jeopardy! featured a question that referenced Coolio. For one category, contestants were asked to combine two related titles into one. When one question was “A song by Coolio from Dangerous Minds goes back in time to become a 1667 John Milton Classic,” contestant Nick thought he answered right when he said “Gangster’s Paradise Lost.” However, Alex Trebek later informed Nick that the judges ruled that the answer that was given was actually wrong.
