“Jeopardy” host Alex Trebek appeared on crutches Wednesday to host the National Geographic World Championship in California. He snapped his Achilles tendon on one leg, and injured the other while falling down as he was chasing a burglar who’d stolen cash and jewelry from his hotel room. Police have arrested 56-year-old Lucinda Moyers on suspicion of burglary.
- During his recovery, game show execs have decided to have him fill-in for Pat Sajak on a special edition of “Wheel of Mis-Fortune”.
- I hope the suspect is convicted the first time… otherwise, “Double Jeopardy” could apply.
- Trebek admitted that she was a polite burglar… saying, “I’ll take Jewelry and $2000, Alex”.
- In a rare move, members of the jury will listen to the Jeopardy theme song while writing down their verdicts.
