‘Jeopardy’ host Alex Trebek has a beard and everyone has an opinion on it

If you watched the season premiere of “Jeopardy” Monday, you may have noticed something different about host Alex Trebek. He has a beard.

The game show host used to have a mustache, but in recent years had gone clean shaven.

The game show posted a poll on Facebook asking viewers to vote for “beard” or “no beard.”

By early Tuesday, “beard” was the clear winner with 64-percent of the vote.

The post had thousands of comments for and against the beard.

“I say ‘yes’. A nicely trimmed beard makes a man look distinguished!” one woman wrote.

I’ve said this before when I saw him with a mustache for the first time in a long time and I’ll say it again about his beard. He looks a lot better and younger with a smooth clean shave. My comment will stand to this very day,” a man wrote.

Trebek has hinted that he may retire when his contract expires in 2020.
