VIDEO: JEOPARDY's Alex Trebek Breaks Guinness World Record

On Friday, June 13th, Alex Trebek reached a broadcast milestone by hosting his 6,829th episode of the long-running TV quiz show "Jeopardy!" As a result, he now holds the Guinness World Record for most game shows hosted by the same presenter.

"This is special in the fact that it means I've been around for a long time," Trebek quipped in a Guinness World Record interview. "I have a couple of walls now that are dedicated to certificates, awards and all kinds of important photos -significant photos - from my career that I look at every once in a while ... This one will go up alongside the others."

Trebek has hosted the popular show, now in its 30th season, since it began airing in syndication in 1984. Since then, he has never missed a single episode due to illness. The sole time he was absent from his post was in 1997, when he and Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak traded hosting duties as part of an April Fool's joke.

"Although I want to continue (hosting) for a few more years, who knows how long it will be," the game-show host said in the Guinness interview.
