We don’t see this record being broken anytime soon! Except by himself when he shows up for work on Monday! LOLz!

Alex Trebek has been hosting Jeopardy since 1984, and he’s finally gotten some huge recognition for it!

The 73-year-old is now the Guinness World Record holder for the "most game show episodes hosted by the same presenter,” which comes out to 6,829!

That’s over 416,000 questions he’s asked people!

And guess what… Alex isn’t done quizzing contestants yet! He said:

"I want to continue for a few more years… [This] is the kind of record that can be replaced. The good news is as long as I keep hosting the program, I stay ahead of whoever's in second place and that makes me feel good.”

Yasss! Jeopardy fans everywhere, rejoice!
