Alex Trebek Jeopardy!

Alex Trebek passed away in 2020, leaving behind a legacy on Jeopardy! that was almost unlike anyone else in the game show space. Nearly universally revered for the stoicism and candor he brought to the role, the man was synonymous with the show in a way few others have ever achieved in the history of the small screen. It was a testament to his talent that Alex Trebek was revered in this way, and why fans of the show (of all ages) were saddened when he was no longer gracing televisions in the 7 PM time slot Monday through Friday. He’d become a staple over his decades on the show.

In the wake of his passing, fans of Jeopardy!, Alex Trebek, and just collectors, in general, will now have a chance to take home some of what the legend accumulated over the years in terms of memorabilia and other odds and ends. Per Deadline, there will be an estate sale at Trebek’s former residence with the bulk of what remains in there going up for sale to the public, or at least those who are able to attend. And in preparation for the sale, a video went up on TikTok about what to expect when going to Trebek’s home. The video moves fast and it’s easy to miss some stuff, but one can get a sense of just the size and scope of the home here. Check it out:

Among the many (many) things going up for sale at the Alex Trebek estate sale will be a massive collection of vintage tracksuits that the former Jeopardy! host was very much into collecting. There will also be a Japanese Kabuto and sword collection, history books, a ton of Jeopardy! memorabilia (of course), furniture, art pieces, kitchenware, bar decorations, and much, much more. According to the video, there is going to be a list of those who can attend, so getting there early for parking and access will be pretty critical. But it sure does look like there is plenty to take in here with the house of Alex Trebek, as the video says, screaming television history. 

Alex Trebek passed away in November 2020 after a bout with pancreatic cancer. The Jeopardy! host had opened up about the diagnosis in March 2019, saying that he was undergoing treatment and was determined to fight it. He continued to host the show for the airings over the better part of the next year. There were continued updates during this time and he even had surgery in October of 2020 only to return to tape his final episode on October 29th of that year. He passed away 10 days later on November 8th. In this way, the legend hosted the show almost right until the very end. 

Finding the replacement for Alex Trebek on Jeopardy! has been a rocky path with some celebrity tryouts, an ill-fated first casting of Mike Richards who was quickly fired, and now the show has settled into Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings sharing the duties. But no matter who hosts, they will never be able to fill the shoes of Alex Trebek.
