This Elaborate Practical Joke On Alex Trebek Is Genius

What happens when you get Alex in a room full of Trebek superfans, aka "Trebekkies."

Jeopardy host Alex Trebek was the victim of a hilarious practical joke, pulled off by the show, TV Bloopers and Practical Jokes. In this 1991 episode, Alex is invited to "the first Trebekkie Convention" — actually filled with actors playing Alex's biggest fans — and the setup/dialog is so perfectly plausible, that it's maybe the funniest thing ever.

Check out the full prank here, which begins at about 0:38.
