Alex Trebek, the late longtime host of Jeopardy!, has just had his longtime and final LA home hit the market for $7 million. Trebek died back in November 2020 and had purchased the home with his wife Jean Trebek back in 1991 for $2.15 million.
This would be the home where Trebek would spend his final years, having raised a family in that home, including his three children—and, all the while, became a household name as well.
