Alex Trebek is a Guinness World Record breaker!
Trebek has been on the popular game show since 1984, hosting 6795 episodes to date. The show is currently in its 30th season and its 31st will begin in September. Trebek will of course be continuing as host, simply increasing his record. Incredibly for such a long running show, Trebek is Jeopardy!'s second host. The first was Art Flemming who hosted from 1964-1979 before the show was cancelled. Five years later it was Trebek who stepped in when the show was re-launched.

'Wheel of Fortune’s' first special needs contestant Trent Girone, proves an inspiration to viewers as he fulfils his dream on the game show.
There’s been a few 'Wheel of Fortune' contestants recently that have caught the mainstream attention, (remember ‘new baby buggy’ guy), but none have captured viewer's hearts quite like Trent Girone.
Pat Sajak, the long running show's host
The 21 year old got to fulfil one of his dreams on Wednesday night when he became the first ever special needs contestant on the long running game show. Girone, an Arizona native, suffers from both Asperger's and Tourette's syndromes and has had nine brain surgeries in his life so far. A long time viewer, he described himself as a 'Wheel of Fortune' fanatic, having been watching the show since the age of two.
De Leon explained his precise method in a recent interview.
Wheel of Fortune has featured many impressive contestants over the year and plenty of amazingly lucky guesses, but last night’s winner – Emil de Leon – made even host Pat Sajak refer to his answer as “the most amazing solve in my 30+ years on the show.” With just two letters originally on the board, de Leon managed to work out the phrase “new baby buggy”.
Pat Sajak has never seen guesswork this precise in his 3 decades on the show.
It was a combination of luck, logic and loads of Wheel of Fortune experience. "The first word was easy as there is pretty much nothing that can go there except 'new'. Then I just kept on working with the second word - I used a used letter board, the first letter there was B, so I worked off that. New Baby just sounds right - it flows," he explained for The Hollywood Reporter.
