    Yes, congrats to DT on the right prediction.

    Nope. Nor was Johnny Gilbert’s birthday mentioned July 13. But, my local ABC station mentioned today Alex Trebek was born July 22, 1940 and that he was 75 today.

    On July 13th they mentioned Johnny Gilbert, the Jeopardy announcer, was born July 13, 1924 which makes him a young 91 years old.

    There have been articles written over the years about their birth dates.

    Going to the POtpourri category with the less than a minute warning when there’s a DD remaining and a player is trailing by $10K or so is a bad strategy, as the DD is almost never in a POtpourri/Hodgepodge category, only one such occurrence in the archive that I have found(1987 TofC)

    Alex mentioned something to the effect of “I have a birthday coming up” during the interview segment, not mentioning the day the show was to air, today, is his 75th birthday.

      I’m looking at the recording with the closed caption on – after he talked to Scott, Alex said “Okay. I’ve got a birthday.” Then he put his hand in front of his mouth and said “oh, it’s- oh, it’s today.”

      @aaaa, google the news articles about July 22nd being Alex Trebek’s birthday. There are several of them.

    Wow, Scott! Congratulations. You are off the charts. No miss on a fj yet. Awesome!

    What’s with the small wagers by the other two?

    Happy Birthday Trebek!!
