Jeopardy Contestant Trolls Alex Trebek, Tricks Him Into Saying “Turd Ferguson”: Video.

On the famous “Saturday Night Live” parody of “Jeopardy!” contestants were constantly attempting to get a rise out of Will Ferrell’s “Alex Trebek” — be it “Sean Connery” deliberately misreading “THERAPISTS” as “the rapists” or “WHO READS” as “whore ads,” or “Burt Reynolds” insisting that he be called “Turd Ferguson” — but on the actual show yesterday, life imitated parody as Talia Lavin spent the majority of the episode vigorously fiddling with her buzzer and providing hilariously off-kilter answers, including a “Final Jeopardy!” question for the ages. A Jeopardy! contestant trolled Alex Trebek on Sept. 16, making the longtime host say the phrase, “What is the love ballad of Turd Ferguson?” — watch the video here!

A diabolical “Jeopardy!” contestant tricked host Alex Trebek into saying “Turd Ferguson” during Wednesday’s episode, a nod to Saturday Night Live’s classic “Celebrity Jeopardy!” sketch. During a “Final Jeopardy” round, contestants were asked to name the “song from a 1999 animated film about censorship [that] had a word censored from its Oscar performance.” A woman named Talia gave an answer that may have been one of the best practical jokes ever played on TV. In the classic skit, Will Ferrell plays Trebek and Norm Macdonald poses as Burt Reynolds, whose character insists on calling himself “Turd Ferguson” because “it’s a funny name.” The joke is beloved from the throwback sketches in which Macdonald called himself Turd Ferguson (because it was a “funny name.”) Meanwhile, Lavin — a former staffer at HuffPost — told the site about her Internet-friendly response. “I love Norm Macdonald, and think giant styrofoam hats are funny,” she said. “I’m honored to be trending on [Facebook] with my homeslices Iggy Azalea and Jeb Bush.” While she didn’t walk away with the cash prize, Lavin was still a winner. “I won the Internet,” she shared. “Which is way better than many thousands of dollars.” The real answer was “Blame Canada” from “South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut.” SNL fans know Turd Ferguson from its beloved “Celebrity Jeopardy!” skits, featuring Will Ferrell as Trebek and a slew of guest stars as clueless, famous contestants.

The two finalists were only separated by a 1% difference in the final vote after each regularly wowed judges and audiences throughout the season with their entertaining acts.
