Alex Trebek Isn't Retiring Anytime Soon The Question: This man is renewing his contract through 2022. The answer? Who is Alex Trebek. The venerable game show host of Jeopardy! has renewed his deal to continue hosting the show that has made him a household star since 1984. The 78-year-old had previously said that he was considering retirement after the 2020 season of the show. He placed the odds at "50-50." That has obviously changed. Wheel of Fortune's Pat Sajak and Vanna White have also been signed on through 2022. Who will retire first? Sajak or Trebek? Is one trying to outlast the other?
