Alex Trebek Goes Full Gene Simmons In 'Jeopardy!" Halloween Episode

October 31, 2018

Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek is a pretty calm, reserved guy when he's asking for answers in the form of questions to questions in the form of answers. So in the Halloween-themed episode of Jeopardy!, he dons the outfit of the antithesis of all things Alex Trebek... Gene Simmons of KISS.

“Boy, I hope I got this KISS makeup right,” Trebek says in full demon armor, wig, and makeup. Thankfully he has the approval of the original demon himself. "“You’re looking good, don’t worry,” says Simmons. Tonight's Halloween episode should be extra-spooky good because contestants will be getting clues from Simmons himself!

Jeopardy! later posted a time-lapse behind-the-scenes video of Simmons and Trebek's transformations into their terrorfying alter-egos!
