If you've been watching Jeopardy for the past zillion years, you've probably noticed something hasn't been right for a while.
And no, it's not a sudden lack of pants.
This is an old photo of host Alex Trebek. Does something look a little different?
Anything at all?
FOR YEARS, Trebek had the best 'stache in the showbiz game.
He was a HIGH ROLLER.
Hanging with Hollywood's inner circle.
But then in 2001, at the height of its power and fame, he SHAVED IT ALL OFF.
And was ALL:
Trebek, SO COLD AND WITHHOLDING when it comes to his powerful 'stache.
His lack of facial hair was seriously alarming.
The Trebek mustache drought was long and arduous.
The men sighed.
The women wept.
It was a long dark hour of the soul. Like 13 years long.
But then! Just this week, Trebek announced that he'd let his mustache grow back!
"This year I had a two-and-a-half-month period where we were not taping a show, so I grew it back on another whim," Trebeck told People. "I like to keep my life simple.”
