Alex Trebek Brings His Mustache Back: See the Jeopardy! Host's New (Old) Look

Posted on

Get ready, America. Jeopardy!‘s long-lost star is making a triumphant return.

When Alex Trebek shaved off his distinctive mustache in 2001 after more than 30 years of his signature look, the country mourned the loss of an icon.

But it’s time to put champagne on ice and get your noisemakers ready, because when the long-running game show (now in its 31st season) returns next week, viewers can toast to the return of the TV host’s famous facial hair.

“In 2001, I shaved my mustache on a whim,” he tells PEOPLE exclusively. “This year I had a two-and-a-half-month period where we were not taping a show, so I grew it back on another whim. I like to keep my life simple.”

Now that you’ve seen a sneak peek photo of Trebek’s ‘stache, tune into the new season of “Jeopardy!”, premiering Monday, Sept. 15., to see his scruff in all its glory.

Do you like the host better with or without his mustache? Share your thoughts below!
