Alex Trebeck had to say Turd Ferguson on "Jeopardy" Wednesday night and "Saturday Night Live" fans everywhere have a new real-life hero.

During final jeopardy on Wednesday, contestant Talia got Trebeck to say "Turd Ferguson" by including it in her answer.

The name is a reference to the classic SNL skit featuring Norm Macdonald impersonating Burt Reynolds on "Celebrity Jeopardy."

In the skit, Macdonald's Burt Reynolds character changes his name to Turd Ferguson, much to the dismay of host Alex Trebeck, played by Will Farrell.

She may not have won "Jeopardy," but Talia definitely won over SNL fans with her answer.
