Jeopardy’s Alex Trebek would have made a great James Bond

I love Jeopardy. In the eighties it was a regular part of my weekday nights after dinner and I always thought I was a pretty big fan of the show. But if I was, how could I not have seen this amazing promo for the show from 1988?

It is a minute long and stars Trebek as some sort of James Bond-like super spy who constantly faces life-threatening real life “jeopardy” in order to keep the questions from his TV show “Jeopardy” out of the hands of bad guys.

So watch Trebek, zip line, flying kick and risk life and limb to bring us all the greatest trivia show on Earth.
