Alex Trebek Net Worth from Jeopardy
If you had to guess between Pat Sajak and Alex Trebek net worth, who would you pick as the most successful Game Show Host? While both Sajak and Trebek’s salaries are at least $12 million per season each, only one holds the Guinness World Record for hosting the most episodes on a game show episodes. The Wheel of Fortune with Pat Sajak and Vanna White hold the record for the longest-running syndicated Game Show in the U.S., but Jeopardy’s host Alex Trebek has the Guinness World Record in part because he’s never missed a single day of work in over 33 years. That and the fact He’s also hosted several other Reality Game Shows making Alex Trebek the most successful Reality Show Game Host in the History of TV. Alex Trebek’s net worth is over $100 million from hosting over 7000 game show episodes.
After 33 years since Alex Trebek started hosting Jeopardy, He’s hosted every single episode except one. In that episode filmed over 20 years ago, Jeopardy was hosted by Pat Sajak on April 1, 1997. Trebek, however, made an appearance on The Wheel of Fortune at the same time. I wonder who came up with that April Fools Joke? It turned out to be a huge rating boost for both TV Game Shows, but surprisingly, they’ve never done anything like that again in the past 20 years.
Alex Trebek’s Guinness World Record

Alex Trebek The Actor
In addition to hosting over 7000 Jeopardy episodes, Alex Trebek also hosted a record 30 other game shows and acted in 41 movies and TV shows in the past 50 years. Alex played himself in most of his acting roles because, well, anyone on TV would be stereotyped after playing the same role for 30 consecutive years. In 1996, Trebek once played the role of someone looking like Alex Trebek but was a Man in Black on The X-Files Show instead. Trying not to play yourself while acting the part of yourself would indeed be a challenging role. With all the acting roles in between hosting Jeopardy certainly helped Alex Trebek net worth grow to a solid nine figures, and certainly earned every cent keeping us entertained for over 50 years.
