A ‘Jeopardy‘ contestant learned the hard way that Alex Trebek and co. are sticklers when it comes to pronunciation … especially between “gangster” and “gangsta.”

Nick Spicher appeared on the trivia show Monday night, where he was asked to provide the question to a clue that included Coolio‘s song “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 of -sta. He was awarded $1,600 at first, but Trebek circled back and deducted the money when judges found his answer to be inaccurate, taking away an additional $1,600.

What is … damn you, Coolio!
