‘Jeopardy’ Contestant Mispronounces ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’ & Loses $3,200

A “Jeopardy” contestant on Monday night lost $3,200 because he mispronounced Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise.

He was asked the question to a clue that included “Gangsta’s Paradise” and author John Milton’s book “Paradise Lost.” His answer “Gangster’s Paradise Lost” was almost correct, except he said “ster” instead “sta.”

Coolio believes that it was close enough and the contestant should’ve gotten the money. He did say when in doubt, go with an “a” and not the “er” sound.
