Everyone is familiar with Jeopardy host Alex Trebek. His long tenure on the trivia game show has made him an iconic figure and household name.
However, in a new interview with Harvey Levin of TMZ fame, Trebek revealed how his afro, deep tan and mustache made him an honorary brother. In the 1980s, the United Negro College Fund approached him to join. He told Levin, who wondered how the two entities came together.
"I ran into Gregory Hines, the dancer. Someone came up to me after and said 'I saw you and your brother talking over there," he recalled.
Alex Trebek talks about when he had the afro, the moustache, a very dark tan and how he was out there in the African American community as a ‘brother.’ OBJECTified: Alex Trebek this Sunday on Fox News at 8p ET / 5p PT and again at 11p ET / 8p PT pic.twitter.com/zOaEhf1mjs

The Canadian-American game show host talked about his infamous fro and tan.
"I'm out there in the Afro-American community as a brotha," he said as he threw his fists up.
This might be the first time anyone has heard this, and, of course, Twitter was confused.
Just like that Trebek was the butt of all the Twitter jokes.
