Alex Trebek Suffers Heart Attack

12/11/2007 4:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that "Jeopardy!" host Alex Trebek has suffered a heart attack. I'll take medical emergencies for $1000!

A rep for the show confirms to TMZ the 67-year-old host had a minor heart attack but is "resting comfortably." We're told he will be back in the studio for the show's next scheduled tapings in January.

Trebek, who was born Giorgi Suka-Alex Trebek, has been the host of "Jeopardy!" since September of 1984.

Alex Trebek is such an American staple, even if he is a Canadian! He is truly is loved and respected. It just wouldn't be TV w/o Jeopardy.

Dear Dear Alex, May you heal quickly. We are all pulling for you.

Lots of Love from Southern California!

Man up Trebek! Seriously, you ARE jeopardy. The show would be nothing without your charm and smiling Canadian-bred face. I wish you good health and blessings. Looking forward to your return in the New Year.

Hello Alex, You are like family. I am rocked by your "slight heart attack" and only can wish you a total and complete recovery. Please ease back some. I am the same age you are and it is hard to say "Whoa, old boy/girl" As long as we feel able we want to do and do some more. I will put you into my prayers. You are such a warm and capable person. I salute you! JackieBrundige

TMZ has no class

Alex is a class act, can't recall any bad press with the guy. I love Jeopardy, I actually learned english watching it...knew of the questions, but had a hard time reading the answers.
