Born in Ontario, Canada, Alex Trebek found a career in television right out of college reporting news for the CBC. He eventually began hosting game shows, a job that fit his on-air skills with ease. Over the years, he hosted a number of programs including Battlestars, Double Dare, High Rollers, and Concentration. He rose to fame as the host of the nationally syndicated version of Jeopardy! that first hit the airwaves in 1984, becoming such a cultural icon that he was parodied by Will Ferrell on Saturday Night Live and was cast as a man in black on an episode of The X-Files. Among other duties, Trebek often acted as host of the National Geography Bee, a contest to find the youngster in America who knows the most about geography.
