We knew Trebek had it in him. The 71-year-old Jeopardy host is on crutches this week after chasing down a very bold thief. The intruder, a 56-year-old woman with a history of burglary attempts, snuck into Alex’s hotel room while he and his wife were asleep, and began grabbing their valuables. Alex woke up and chased the woman through the hotel, injuring himself in the process. The burglar was eventually apprehended by hotel staff, and now faces jail time. The TV star will undergo surgery after rupturing his Achilles tendon during the chase.
