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.

Probably the second greatest highlight of my European Service (meeting my wife was first) was meeting you at Ramstein Air Base in 1998 to audition for Jeopardy! (Wasn't up on sports or TV, so I missed the cut). Anyway, best wishes for a speedy and full recovery. Godspeed.

Hi Alex....Gosh what a scare!! I doubt that there is anyone around that doesn't know who you are, therefore you have to know that there are also a lot of people behind you right now, as I am, praying for you and hoping to always see your handsome face when I turn on Jeopardy, as I have done for decades, and even now my Grandchildren do. No one could do the job....we need you!! God Bless You
