One big thing that fans didn’t really know about Alex Trebek was that he had a pouty mouth, and this viral video is proving it.
A new video that just surfaced online watches as the late Jeopardy! host is promoting Phone Jeopardy!, which was a promotion during the early 1990s for the quiz game show.
While shooting the promos, Alex is seen and heard flubbing a line, and each time he does it, he curses like a sailor.
“Keep watching ‘Jeopardy!’ 24 hours a day and call this number…eh, you dumb son of a b****, you don’t watch it 24 hours a day,” Alex says at the beginning.
He later says, “There’s a daily cash prize of $1000 and… f***…no s***.”
Alex has been known in the past to drop a few swear words, and in one particular radio interview with Dan Patrick, he was put on a delay because of it.
“I’m worried about your language,” Dan told the host at the time in 2014.
