Trebek was inducted into the Guinness World Records for hosting the most TV game show episodes: 6,289. The record was previously held by Bob Barker, host of The Price is Right. Trebek continued to host Jeopardy! for another six years after breaking the world record. An interesting behind-the-scenes fact of Jeopardy! is that they filmed multiple episodes within a day. Trebek would work two 12-hour workdays, switching his suits between filming new episodes.
