Alex Trebek’s Wife Reveals the Hardest Part of His Illness


For the past 35 years, Alex Trebek has been the charming host of Jeopardy!, one of America’s favorite game shows. And while Alex certainly seems to know a lot (after more than three decades of holding all the answers, how could he not?), when it comes to his personal life, we had to admit there’s actually quite a bit we don’t know. Recently, Alex Trebek’s wife appeared in a TV interview along with Alex and we set out to find out more about her. Here’s what we know.

Alex Trebek’s wife is Jean Currivan Trebek.

Jean and Alex met at a party back in 1988. She was a real estate project manager and he, of course, was one of the most well-known television hosts in the country. Jean and Alex got married two years after their fateful meeting on April 30, 1990. “The answer is...yes,” quipped Alex when asked whether he took Jean to be his bride.
