“Oddly, female rapper Megan Pete calls herself ‘Megan Thee’ this word for a male horse,” was one of the clues offered by Alex Trebek on a recent episode of the popular TV game show Jeopardy!

“What is ‘Stallion?'” the contestant replied. Detroit writer, Alex Washington tweeted a clip of Houston rapper Megan Thee Stallion’s feature on Jeopardy and Hot Girl Meg’s hotties made the tweet go viral.

Washington shared the tweet of the clip yesterday, and since it’s had over 34 thousand likes and 10 thousand retweets.

Megan isn’t the only hip-hop artist who recently was included in a Jeopardy! question.  So was singer-rapper Lizzo, who was extremely happy about it.

“In 2019, this five-letter rap & R&B artist had the ‘Juice’ to be nominated for best new artist at the VMAs,’ was the clue.

A female contestant named Diana answered correctly, earning $600. Lizzo posted a clip of the question to her Instagram account and wrote, “THIS AINT A DRILL,” she wrote. “IM A @jeopardy QUESTION MAMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA I MADE IT I LOVE YOU ALEX TREBEK.”

Lizzo’s shout out to Trebek was sweet, as the longtime host is currently battling Stage 4 pancreatic cancer, as we’ve previously reported.
