    Alex Trebek has made a pretty impressive milestone.

    According to Guinness World Records, the longtime Jeopardy! host has set the record for the Most Game Show Episodes Hosted by the Same Presenter with a whopping 6,829 episodes of Jeopardy! under his belt!

    "It's an honor to hold the Guinness World Record for hosting Jeopardy!, which I've often said is the best of reality TV," Trebek said. "We have had incredible support from our viewers for the past 30 years, and without them, I wouldn't have set this record."
