The day after the video became an internet sensation, we happened to be in Los Angeles to film an interview with Trebek and film what it’s like to be on set during a “Jeopardy!” taping.
We asked Trebek what he thought of the overwhelming reaction to his rapping skills, and also asked if he would recite some verses from two hip-hop songs that are currently topping the charts. Watch as he tackles selected lyrics from “Bad and Boujee” by Migos and “I Got the Keys” by DJ Khaled featuring Jay-Z and Future.

Tesla is about to report earnings — but no one will talk about its biggest competitive advantage (TSLA)
Tesla will report fourth-quarter 2016 earnings after the bell on Wednesday. And with Wall Street struggling to figure out the company’s financial composition after the SolarCity merger, earnings are likely to be weird.
Analysts will obsess over how many vehicles Tesla expects to build and delivery in 2017, whether the carmaker will launch its $35,000 Model 3 on time later this year, what the cash-burn situation looks like. And perhaps analysts will even touch on the actual financial results, which are anticipated to be a big quarterly loss.
In the flurry of confusion that will define this earnings report, Tesla’s biggest and most important competitive advantage is going to be missed.
It’s the Supercharger network, Tesla’s fast-charging infrastructure which used to be free to all owners, but will now cost a bit for new owners (understandably as Tesla can’t afford to give away charging to the nearly 400,000 customers who have pre-ordered the Model 3).
There really is no substitute for Supercharging, which can re-juice your Tesla in about an hour, restoring the 200-plus-mile range the automaker’s cars boast. I took an ill-fated road trip in a Model S sedan last year during which I experienced the full gamut of Tesla charging options. I charged the car using a wall socket (1 mile per hour of recharge), a Tesla partner charging station (non-Supercharger, slower, about 30 miles per hour), and of course a Supercharging station.
Unless you have time to kill, Supercharging is the only electric-car option that even comes close to pulling into a gas station and getting 300 more miles of range in five minutes of fueling — a familiar undertaking for anyone driving a conventional car.
Tesla has invested hundreds of millions in the Supercharger network, which is most fully built up in the US, where Tesla says it’s possible to go almost anywhere and not be at a loss of fast charging. Europe is also expanding, as is China.
But Tesla had to do this, correctly recognizing that without fast charging, electric cars aren’t competitive with gas-powered vehicles. No one has the hours to waste on charging.
This is a big deal because no other car company has to spend millions on fueling infrastructure — GM doesn’t do gas stations.
It’s a considerable cost, but it gives Tesla a huge leg up, sort of a like an embedded Starbucks for electricity. So even though it detracts from Tesla’s bottom line, it adds an enormous amount to the ownership experience.
Alright, so you’ve probably never used a face peel before, right? Or maybe you tried one once, and it left your skin raw, irritated, and peeling, so you swore them off altogether. But it’s not the face peel’s fault—or, it might be, but it’s probably because you used the wrong formula, or because your skin is super sensitive. And we’ll tell you right now, if your skin is highly, highly sensitive, stay away from peels. They will never be your friend—but if you have somewhat “normal” skin that’s dry, combo, oily, or acne-prone, face peels can be the key to getting brighter, smoother, younger, and pretty damn-near perfect-looking skin.
Unlike what their name suggests, peels don’t actually form a pull-away film on your face like a mask, and they don’t make your skin peel like a snake, either (well, they shouldn’t, provided you use a gentle formula, which is where we come in). Basically, face peels can be filled with chemical acids (which are super harsh and be reserved for the derms) or fruit acids (totally safe and gentle for at-home use) that lift away dead skin cells and trigger an increase in collagen production and cell turnover. What does that mean for you? Immediately brighter, clearer skin, and, over time, faded dark spots, diminished fine lines and wrinkles, and younger-looking skin.
Basically, face peels are life. So to get you started on your first acid-dropping experience that leaves you glowing, not crying, we rounded up our 10 favorite face peels that utilize fruit acids and enzymes to give you the best skin of your life. Just promise to read and follow the instructions really carefully, OK? OK.

Travel app Hopper,which tells you when to book your flight to maximize savings, has rolled out a new feature to help you avoid getting smacked with hidden fees.
The basic premise of Hopper is that you set up what days you want to fly, and then Hopper sends you push notifications telling you how prices are changing, and recommending when you should buy. Then you can buy your flight directly in the app.
It’s been my go-to travel app for over a year, and I recently used it to book a one-way flight from San Francisco to New York for only $131.60 — cheap!
But my main gripe with Hopper has been that it’s not always clear which tickets are going to have potential fees associated with them. Now Hopper is trying to change that with a new feature, which will give you “an overview of all the restrictions and fees related to cancellations, changes, carry-on baggage, checked baggage, and seat selection.”
And as airlines continue to cut the base fares on flights by adding in sneaky fees, this will likely become more useful over time.
In conjunction with the new feature, Hopper also released a new report on the state of fees in the airline industry. Here’s a few of the things Hopper found:
- Big re-booking fees. “Cancellations are almost never allowed (99%) for domestic trips, but tickets can almost always (98.8%) be changed for a fee, which will cost you $287 on average.”
- You’ll pay extra for bags. “Bags are no longer included and it’ll cost an average of $25 to bring one piece of luggage, or $59 for two pieces. As more airlines roll out basic fares, you’ll be expected to pay for your carry-on too. Frontier and Spirit both charge an average of $35 for carry-ons.”
- International is a bit less crazy. “About two-thirds of international flights included at least one free bag, so that a trip with one piece of luggage adds only $9 with two pieces coming it at $55.”
- But still. “About 10% of [international] itineraries offering cancellation for a fee which will cost you about $300. And, almost all (97.5%) international itineraries offer changes for about $250.”
We know, we know—another celebrity hair trend. But guys, this one is so easy and so freaking pretty, you’re going to want to try it out yourself, like, immediately. Because unlike some of the other celeb-inspired beauty looks (lookin’ at you, pastel hair), this new haircut is actually wearable to work and school, and it won’t cost you half of your rent check to maintain. We present to you: No-fuss bobs and lobs.
First came Chrissy Teigen’s shoulder-length waves at the Grammy’s, then came Lucy Hale’s blunt, lob-turned-bob that she debuted this week on Instagram, and then, somewhere in between those two, a zillion other celebrities busted out the scissors (or, let’s be honest, their stylists did) and chopped their hair into short, textured styles. Which means we’re officially naming the messy bob-slash-lob hybrid the coolest haircut of 2017, because yes, that’s a thing we can do.
So to get you some serious inspiration to take with you to your next salon appointment, we rounded up the nine best bobs and lobs that we’re positively obsessed with. Click through to see our favorites, and get ready to screenshot all of them.

Baby, it’s cold outside. But that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. It’s February, which means even the most fashionable celebs are bundled up out there—though, of course, plenty of them are also posting to their Instagrams in bikinis, because tropical travel is real. For our purposes, though, we scouted out our favorite looks from the stars this month, and found similar items on the internet. So, if you’re looking for a new coat—or just want to spruce up your wardrobe—we’ve got you covered.
Ahead, find Rihanna, Sofia Richie, Shay Mitchell, Ashley Graham, and others at the ready for a little winter outfit inspo. Yes, you may be sick of your winter coat already—who isn’t?—but these well-heeled ladies just might get you excited about bundling up again. If not, our apologies. At least spring is just a month away!
