Stanford Student Flips Off Alex Trebek On Jeopardy


Most contestants on Jeopardy! are content to simply play the game, but Viraj Mehta decided to add a subtle 'middle finger' to the show's host, Alex Trebek, and the audience.  

Iraj Mehta, a contestant on the College Championship on Jeopardy!, was asked a personal question by Trebek. He was asked to describe the relationship he found between a theorem in differential geometry and pizza.  

Mehta, a Stanford junior majoring in computer science and math, used his hands to demonstrate - and in the process flipped the bird for a whole seven seconds. Mehta, of Austin, Texas, later said on social media the act was intentional.
