NEW YORK (TheWrap.com) – What is “two”?
This is the number of years Alex Trebek may have left as the host of “Jeopardy,” he told Fox News’ Chris Wallace. Trebek, 71, says he has been “thinking about retiring” after 28 years with the game show phenomenon.
Trebek said he may spend his remaining years on charity work. He is active with the humanitarian group World Vision and has embarked on several U.S.O. tour to support troops overseas.
“But I’m torn because I enjoy doing the show so much,” he told Wallace. “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.”
One answer Trebek wouldn’t provide? Whether “Jeopardy” dumbs down questions for celebrity contestants.
