In very important Jeopardy! news, Alex Trebek now has a beard.
It’s a good beard. A great beard. A sexy beard, even?! At least that’s what people on the internet are saying.
The host unveiled his brand-new facial hair in a promo for the show’s 35th season.
“I’m back for another season of Jeopardy!” Alex said. “That, I hope, shouldn’t surprise you. The beard, by now, you’ve all heard of it, so you’re not surprised by that either.”
Alas, he was wrong. People were more than surprised. In fact, they could barely handle Alex’s new look. And sure enough, the beard makes him look like a completely different person. People of all ages are now drooling over the “sexy” 78-year-old game show host.
Not only are people suddenly ready to risk it all to marry the host of Jeopardy! but fellow bearded men are also delighted.
“BEARDED FOLKS THIS IS TRULY OUR TIME,” one fan tweeted.
The beard love went viral, causing the official Jeopardy! Twitter account to declare 2018 the “Year of the Beard.”
