Everyone’s has a guilty pleasure of watching Jeopardy and seeing how Alex Trebek handles the contestants and their answers. Well, know we will have to see how he handles breaking a Guinness World Record for “most game show episodes hosted by the same presenter.”

Most people can’t remember a time without this man as a host.Escapist Magazine said,”To date, Trebek has hosted 6,892 episodes of the popular trivia show, since he started hosting it in 1984. ”

With this many shows done many people are beginning to wonder when he will retire. In a recent interview with Hollywood Reporter Trebek said,”I told audiences and interviewers in the past that I will stick with it as long as I’m having a good time and as long as I feel my skills haven’t diminished too much.”

At least the consistent viewers of Jeopardy will have nothing to worry about because it looks like Trebek is around for the long haul.
