Alex Trebek New York Minute – Interview with Alex Trebek
The answer is reflections on my life. Tj holmes sat down with mr trebek and he has more good morning. Tj hey stray, did you know when he first started, he insisted that they announce him as the host of jeopardy and not the star. He says the contestants are the stars. Did you know when he was a kid he once wanted to leave military school because he didn’t want them to cut his luxurious hair. These are just a couple of the tidbits, both great and small, we’re learning about trebek and a new memoir a book. He never thought he’d write, it’s the best kind of reality television. I feel people watch it and if they come up with one or two correct responses in that half hour, they feel pretty good about themselves. Here is the host of jeopardy, alex trebek six state champion with 103 000 greatest of all time, a new one day record after 36 years coming into our living rooms, you think you’d know a guy, but alex trebek has plenty left to reveal. Why now do you feel like you, do have something to offer and it’s time to write it down, because i want to be in control of my own story out there. The longtime jeopardy host is showing fans a sign they haven’t seen in his new memoir.
The answer is reflections on my life there’s, a decent amount of profanity in there it’s alex trebek kirsten yeah kind of a lot yeah.
I curse more than i think i do. You talk a lot about the hair in the book. This is not me and uh. As long as i’m on chemotherapy, this will always be here when i’m in public and that’s fine. If i were no longer hosting the program, i would not be wearing the hair piece trebek diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer last year wrote the entire book in quarantine. At his california, home, where he’s been since the pandemic began a cavalier attitude towards this pandemic on the part of our young people, especially we’ve lost over 130 000 people and the young people, just hey. If you don’t want to catch it, don’t don’t go out. You know huh what kind of an attitude is that there isn’t enough caring out there as far as i’m concerned, no doubt on trebek’s, mind jeopardy. The game show he’s helmed, the past 36 seasons and counting it’s, a tv show, but it’s feel good television. Until next time folks come on, you will never walk away from that show alex. I think i will well. Maybe i misrepresent myself when i say i will walk away. Maybe i will crawl away so, but still as long as you can do the job you can’t find a reason you would ever want to stop creating the job.
You are absolutely right. So therefore, you’re never going to walk away from this show or crawl you’re, an argumentative son of a gun i’ve had you up to here.
Is there a host in training? Do you have an apprentice? Is there anyone you’re getting ready for the role down the road? I have no say whatsoever in who will replace me when my days as the host of jeopardy end, but if he could choose a replacement rose nylon. I joke with the audience – and i say, betty white it’s nicole, because they want somebody younger somebody funnier. She checks all those boxes, betty and i have been friends for a long, long time put into terms what these fans mean to you, fans of the show they are the most important elements in my life outside of my family and friends. I can’t help but be touched by what they have to say and by what i mean to them and it’s humbling it’s nice to be humbled all right. Continuing with my theme of being an argumentative son of a gun, he would leave the show guys if he says his talents his ability to do. It starts to diminish and he says he’s seen some of that, but he’s hard on himself and he goes back and looks at the tape and everybody agrees his talents. He can do the job he’s not going anywhere guys, walking or crawling away from that show. But the new memoir, the answer is reflections on my life is out today cannot wait to check it out tj great job.
By the way you shall forever be known as an argumentative son of a gun he likes.
