Alex Trebek just blue himself.

The "Jeopardy!" host is known for pronouncing words in non-English languages in accordance with their native accents, which can come off as either wildly charming or unbearably pretentious, depending on your point of view. But he really outdid himself by pronouncing the name of Tobias Fünke, the resident analrapist of "Arrested Development" with a confusing accent that must be heard to be believed.

Clearly, contestant Nina Stanton is a bigger fan of "Arrested Development" than Trebek -- she immediately answered the question correctly.
