6 Nerd to the core.

Susan Cole, a librarian in Maryland's Department of Legislative Services, recently competed on TV's "Jeopardy!" When host Alex Trebeck asked what her favorite style of music was, she described nerdcore as "really catchy and fun ... It's people who identify as nerdy, rapping about the things they love--video games, science fiction, having a hard time meeting romantic partners," she said. "Losers, in other words," Trebek replied. Cole laughed off the remark, then proved she's no loser, winning three games of Jeopardy! and pocketing $67,800. Although he said he was "kidding," Trebek later caught flak on social media from many. After all, "Jeopardy!" is a nerdy TV classic. For her part, Cole has no hard feelings. "It was a wonderful experience," she said.
