17 Celebrity Heroes
Alex Trebek is gangsta. The “Jeopardy” host—who’s been doing his gig for 27 years now, by the way—showed up at an event in June on crutches. Naturally, the press wanted to know what happened. The answer: “What is a thwarted robbery?” Apparently, Trebek woke up in the middle of the night and found a burglar rummaging through his stuff in his hotel room. He may be 70, but he wasn’t about to let the thief get away. So he chased her. Alek explained, “It happened at 2:30 a.m., chasing a burglar down the hallway of my San Francisco hotel when my Achilles tendon ruptured and I then fell on carpet, bruising the other leg in process.” Bad. Ass.
