It’s official, Jeopardy fans. Alex Trebek now holds the world record for the most game show episodes hosted by the same presenter.
The number is 6,829, in case you’re wondering, and Alex beat out Bob Barker, who previously held the record for his work on The Price is Right.
Alex also holds the record for condescending comments made to contestants who don’t have the answers in front of them like he does. (Okay, that hasn’t been made official yet.)
Alex says he’ll hang the certificate on the stairway leading to his bedroom so he can see it every day. I’ll bet he also has T-shirts made for the Jeopardy crew to wear every day, just to remind them as well.
Wonder if he’ll send one to Bob Barker?
