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.

Oh, and don't let Rossi Moreale take your job ("You wagered 4,500 Jeopardy Dollars! You lose everything but leave with LOTS OF LOVE!") Or Louie Anderson, Richard Karn, Pat Bullard, Patrick Wayne, or Blake Emmons.
