Don’t let the Daytime Emmys and gray hair fool you.

According to The Today Show, Jeopardy host Alex Trebek has injured himself after going above and beyond his civic duty.

Trebek, 71, snapped his Achilles tendon and injured his other leg when chasing down a burglar at his San Francisco hotel Wednesday morning, according to that city’s KGO-TV.


No word on whether or not the suspect was actually caught, just that Trebek is the meanest game show host we know. Sadly, the injury meant that the host showed up to the 10th National Geographic World Championships in crutches.

Oh, Alex.
