Trebek spoke with Wallace about one of the biggest controversies of his career: when he finally shaved off his mustache.
Mediaite’s Josh Feldman • Writing about longtime “Jeopardy” host Alex Trebek, who showed up on Fox News Sunday for some reason and mentioned something about retiring soon — though he likes his job so much that he’s torn. Is there a bigger sign of how supremely uncontroversial someone is than their (admittedly famous) facial hair becoming an issue?

Jeopardy! question of the week: A contestant responds to an answer conceivably about a threesome with “What is a threesome?” Meanwhile, Alex Trebek doesn’t miss a beat. Well-played, sir.

rachelinbrooklyn:

Ken Jennings jokes:
He has political insights:

Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Harry Reid (D-NV) both called me back  personally in 2004 to try to get me to run for Orrin Hatch’s Senate  seat.
I am not making this up. Win on a game show and you can apparently  run for the US Senate. That was when I realized the Democratic Party was  f@#$ed in ‘04.

He shares self-deprecating Mormon humor:

1. Christina Aguilera was born Mormon. Not our finest effort ….
5. My Sunday school teacher, when I was a Mormon teen, once memorably  advised us that “There’s nothing more overrated than sex, and nothing  more underrated than a good bowel movement.” It totally worked … I  don’t remember a single other sermon from when I was a kid, but I think  about this guy exactly once a day, and then again once a week.

This is easily the funniest thing we’ve read today.

Rep. Rush Holt, D-NJ, beats back robotic dominion for another day
Holt wins the battle, Watson wins the war: A big humankind hats-off to Representative Rush Holt, who took on Jeopardy mecha-brain Watson in a faux-show in DC yesterday evening. While the contest pitted Watson against successive members of Congress, and those who went after Holt were trounced sufficiently to secure the win for Watson, Holt himself bested the computer by $2,400. Holt was a five-time Jeopardy winner nearly 35 years ago, and serves in the House as a Democrat from New Jersey. source
