We'll take "Greatest Canadian Game Show Hosts" for $1000 please.

"Which Canadian can spit lyrics like patients spit water at the dentist?"

If you answered "Who is Alex Trebek?" Then you are now a thousand dollars richer. Yes, the 73-year-old host of "Jeopardy" channeled some of rap's greatest legends on Monday night's episode of the show.

Trebek showed off his skills during a round of "Double Jeopardy" after the category "That's a rap" appeared. Highlights include him pulling off his best Grandmaster Flash impression, expressing a little bit of the Notorious B.I.G. and showing the Beastie Boys some love.

Viewers and contestants both got a chuckle out of Trebek, who closed the round wondering what was so funny.

"I don't know why that's making you laugh so much," said Trebek.
