Alex Trebek

Emmy Award-winning Host of Jeopardy!

Alex Trebek Biography

Jeopardy host Alex Trebek was born on July 22, 1940 in Ontario, Canada.

He was graduated from the University of Ottawa with a degree in Philosophy, then joined Canada's main network, CBC (the Canadian Broadcasting Company), where he reported the national news on both TV and radio.

But Alex didn't find his niche until he became a game show host (or, as 'Lou Grant' would say, "a quizmaster"). Over the next 20 years, he would host a wide variety of game shows, including  "Pitfall", "Battlestars", "The $128,000 Question", "Double Dare", "High Rollers", The "Wizard of Odds", "Strategy" and "Reach for the Top".

In 1984, he landed his big role as host of "Jeopardy!" (replacing former host Art Fleming). For years it sat atop the ratings, as the #1 TV quiz show (until Regis came along with "Millionaire").

Alex has won two Emmy Awards for his role as host, and was also honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

In his spare time, Alex hosts the annual "National Geography Bee" in the U.S. and Canada.

On October 31, 2018, Trebek signed a contract to host Jeopardy! until 2022.

Trebek became a U.S. citizen in 1998. He now lives in Studio City with his wife (Jean) and two children (Matthew & Emily). He owns a thoroughbred horse ranch in Creston, California (called Creston Farms), and until recently he also owned a winery called Creston Vineyards.
