I’m incredibly saddened to write this post, but Jeopardy! game show host, Alex Trebek, has died at the age of 80. Mr. Trebek (1940-2020) hosted the popular game show from 1984 until his death and has hosted numerous other game shows in the past. He frequently made film and TV appearances as versions of himself, with two animated appearances being the announcer in an episode of The Magic School Bus
as well as RiddleQuest host, Alex Lebeck, in an episode of Arthur.
My thoughts go out to his family and friends. He shall be deeply missed!

Long and successful life. Last time I heard the show runners wanted Brad to fill his huge shoes.
I know he’s pursuing acting, so I dunno if he’ll want to do the job.
Now I am hearing Ken is their top choice.
I don’t think he wants the job either. I can’t see him as a host personally.
He was in Scooby-Doo and Guess Who
Oh, was he? I haven’t reached that episode then.
Love him 3000
I certainly watched Jeopardy when I was a kid and played the computer game. RIP Mr. Trebek.
I also had the computer game, good times
Nice! Sometimes I would play along if it was on the TV by trying to answer some of the questions and feeling proud of myself when I got them right.
