    Someone competing in a contest --a contestant.

    Yes, time for ole' Alex to go. He's too smug and condescending --like some school marm who is always correcting grammar and spelling. ;-)

    I think Jeopardy! should actually end not with a final question, but with the winner standing face-to-face with Trebek for a full minute. If the winner does NOT punch Trebek in the face, then they win double their money.

    Nowhere in the article do I see Trebek as deserving blame for the contestant's or the mother's behaviour. Actually, the former appears like a brat and the latter come across as a helicopter parent.

    If Alex Trebek wants to protest, so what? Employees complain.
