Hasan Minhaj was open and honest about what transpired. and why his enthusiasm wasn’t well received by the crowd during his appearance on Celebrity Jeopardy on October 30.

During a recent appearance on The Tonight Show, the comic addressed the criticism he faced following his Celebrity Jeopardy! performance on October 30.

“This week I was on Celebrity Jeopardy! and now fans of Jeopardy! hate my guts,” Hasan revealed to host Jimmy Fallon Nov. 3“I have this unique power to piss off dedicated nerds.”

The author said that he appeared on the programme to solicit donations for the International Relief Committee, which provides aid to Pakistan flood victims.

“I’m playing the show and I’m passionate,” he continued. “I was just playing with vigor and passion,” to which Jimmy then played a montage of some of Hasan’s most “passionate” moments—jumping up and down when answering questions or adding a little comedy to each response—from the episode.

And how did the 37-year-old feel about his performance on the long running NBC show? “I was into it!” he said, “And if you get it right, hang on the rim!”

Jimmy went on to read a slew of tweets that followers wrote regarding The Morning Show actor’s energetic demeanor that night, but it was one in particular—which labeled the Homecoming King star “the most annoying contestant” in the show’s history—that he felt the most.

“That one hurt because, you know, the show’s been on for over 58 years—and they’ve had 15,000 contestants on the show,” he teased. “And Dr. Oz was a contestant.”

The King’s Jester creator then whipped out a piece of paper, turned to the camera and issued his apology.

“I’m in the eye of the storm and I can’t take it anymore,” he shared with a straight face. “So I want to apologize to the fans of Jeopardy!”

His apology read, in part, “I’m sorry for trying to make Jeopardy! fun.”

And when asked by the late night host if he had “learned anything from the whole ordeal,” Hasan confessed, “When people watch Jeopardy! they wanna see a cerebral, quiet, quiz show. I need to go to a place where I’m celebrated.”
