Alex Trebek Is A Badass, Gives Chase To Burglar

| Filed under: TV NewsInspiration

Trebek Wants You To Make Your Move

Everyone should know this already: Alex Trebek is a badass.

He may have lost his iconic mustache a few years ago, but that doesn't mean he can't give chase to a burglar — and chase him so hard that he injures himself.

Still not convinced?

He hosted Jeopardy a few hours later on crutches. Oh, and he's 71 years old:

He told audience members at the National Geographic World Championship, held at the Mountainview, Calif., headquarters of tech giant Google, that he encountered the crook at 2:30 a.m. local time. As he raced after him Trebek said his Achilles tendon suddenly snapped. He then fell to the floor, hurting his other leg in the process.

Despite his injuries, Trebek insisted he was OK. He did not explain exactly how he came across the burglar, or whether the intruder was ultimately apprehended.

Wow! We'd love to know what happened to the burglar!

It would've been sweet had he caught him single handedly, that's for sure.

Glad to hear you're okay, Alex. You're one tough dude!

    He's a passive aggressive Canadian, he probably pinched the burglar, and then ignored him!
