This 'Jeopardy!' Contestant Really Made Alex Trebek Say 'Turd Ferguson' (Video)
There aren't many reoccurring "Saturday Night Live" sketches that managed to be more consistently entertaining than "Celebrity Jeopardy!," which featured Will Ferrell's Alex Trebek doing whatever he could to stop himself from murdering whatever famous people were behind the podium.
Darrell Hammond's Sean Connery was probably the sketch's most memorable fake celebrity thanks to his ability to transform the name of any "Jeopardy!" category into something dirty (and always managing to find a way to incorporate his sexual escapades involving Trebek's mother).
While Connery might take the crown, there's a clear successor to the throne: Norm Macdonald's Burt Reynolds aka Turd Ferguson aka The Guy With The Hat That's Funny Because It's Bigger Than A Normal Hat.
A contestant named Talia had $600 going into last night's Final Jeopardy (trailing her two opponents by $12,000 and $7,000), and when she couldn't remember the name of a song from "South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut," she had another pop culture reference ready to go.
She ended up with $0, but at least she'll always have this clip. Suck it, Trebek.
