A "Jeopardy" Contestant Mispronounced "Gangsta" and It Cost Him $3,200

posted by Zuko -

A contestant on "Jeopardy" named Nick Spicher cost himself $3,200 on Monday's show, because he pronounced the word "gangsta" as "gang-STER" with hard R.  

The correct answer was "Gangsta's Paradise Lost", which combines "Gangsta's Paradise" by Coolio and the book "Paradise Lost" by John Milton. 

He initially won $1,600, but then the judges took it away and docked him another $1,600, since it was now a "wrong" answer.
