Jeopardy host Alex Trebek was rushed to the hospital over the weekend after suffering a heart attack. He was admitted to Cedars-Sinani hospital in LA on Saturday after having a mild heart attack but was released the next day. His rep released a statement saying, “Trebek is in good spirits and is currently under observation and undergoing further testing. He is expected to fully recover and be back at Jeopardy! when production begins taping in July for the new season, the show’s 29th.”
This is the second heart attack for Trebek. He suffered one back in 2007 and returned to work just a few weeks later.
Alex is 71 years old and has been hosting Jeopardy since 1984. His contract was just extended until 2014.
