Alex Trebek Sets a Guinness World Record LA Times
“Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek has set a Guinness World Record. The Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker reports that the TV veteran has been recognized for “most game show episodes hosted by the same presenter (one show)."
Trebek has hosted 6,829 episodes of the game show, as of Friday, when he set the record, the story reports. He’s been the face of the program since its current version started airing in 1984. Trebek is the show’s second host, following Art Fleming, who hosted the show when it ran earlier from 1964 to 1979.
“It's an honor to hold the Guinness World Record for hosting 'Jeopardy!,' which I've often said is the best of reality TV," Trebek said in a statement.
