Less than a month after Jeopardy host Alex Trebek dipped his toe into the rap game by reciting lyrics by Kanye West, Desiigner, Lil Wayne and Kendrick Lamar, the quiz show was at it again on Tuesday night (March 7) when it got the Beyhive Buzzing thanks to a “Becky with the Good Hair” category.
Yup, ATrek went there with a “Good Hair” category, which while alluding to the infamous Beyoncé “Sorry” lyric from Lemonade, mostly stuck to more tame questions about Mark Twain’s Tom Sawyer, Empire, Cheers and Vanity Fair. Contestants Allison and Shawn crushed the category, while glum Todd was left to just look on with his hands hidden behind the podium.
