Double Jeopardy: Alex Trebek Suffers Another Heart Attack

Popular game show host Alex Trebek is recovering from a mild heart attack.

The 71-year-old Jeopardy host was admitted into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Saturday evening with chest pains. A spokesperson for Sony Television said that Trebek was "good spirits and is currently under observation and undergoing further testing. He is expected to fully recover and be back at Jeopardy! when production begins taping in July for the new season, the show's 29th.”

This is the second heart attack for the affable Trebek, who has hosted Jeopardy for the past 28 years. He suffered his first mild heart attack in December of 2007, but he was back at the podium hosting his popular game show only a few weeks later.

He also made headlines last year after he injured his Achilles' tendon chasing a female burglar that had broken into his San Francisco hotel room.
