Here's something you don't see everyday on TV: Alex Trebek clearly out of his element.
Fortunately, there's the internet for these kinds of occasion. On Monday, one YouTube user posted the 1:41 clip from this season's taping that never made it pass the cutting room floor. In it, the "Jeopardy!" host is his usual charming self while introducing two of the show's contestants, only unbeknown to him, he's already mixed them up.
While he meant to introduce Catherine Ruth Hardee, a contestant who'd go on to win four nights in a row, Trebek actually started talking to another contestant, who just went along with it instead of correcting Trebek because she wanted to make him feel good.
After pausing and restarting the segment, the long-time host took the flub in good stride, joking about how much of the material he actually knows.
"You were asking, 'how much of the material do I know?' I don't even know where the hell I am today."
