Wow. It could be the end of an era!
Alex Trebek has been the host of Jeopardy since 1984, but according to a recent interview, he has revealed that he may actually be planning to retire from the game show within the next two years!
The 71-year-old explains:
"Yes, I have been thinking of retiring. But I'm torn because I enjoy doing the show so much. A lot of people have been telling me, 'Alex, you've got to go for at least 30. You've just done 28. Now at least do two more'. So that has a nice ring to it. Put in your 30. And go help people."
Ha! Well, we'd be lying if we didn't agree that 30 years certainly does have a nice ring to it!
But obviously, he's put in MORE than enough time on the game show, and is now at the age where he deserves to do whatever makes him happiest!
So if you're down for another two years to make it an even 30, we are more than behind you, Alex!
What do U think?? Can U even imagine Jeopardy without Alex Trebek??
