Alex Trebek Has Brain Surgery Takes Medical Leave From ‘Jeopardy

The Internet is betting it all on Alex Trebek after he announced that he's on a leave of absence from Jeopardy! while recovering from brain surgery for blood clots.

"Some of you may have heard by now that, over the holiday break, I had a slight medical problem", Trebek, sporting a Jeopardy! baseball cap, says from what is presumably a couch in his own home. He is now taking medical leave from the long-running game show to recover from surgery he had in mid-December to remove blood clots from his brain.

He underwent surgery on December 16, 2017, and was released two days later. Wearing a Jeopardy hat, Trebek appeared in good health and good spirits, saying, "I expect to be back in the studio taping more Jeopardy programs very, very soon".

He gave no specific timetable for when he might return.

In a video posted to the show's YouTube channel, the 77-year-old trivia show host revealed his medical struggle and the measures he has taken to win it.

He also thanked viewers for their concern.

Trebek is expected to make a full and complete recovery. In 2014, Trebek hosted his 6,829 episode, earning him a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records for most game shows hosted by the same presenter. Trebek began hosting the popular show in 1984. The broadcast schedule will otherwise be unaffected.

A statement on the show's website assured the public that since they tape months in advance, there won't be any interruption in scheduling except for the College Championship which will be in April instead of February.
