Alex Trebek Net Worth 2018: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

He and His Wife Bought a Mountain for $1.5 Million

Prior to their wedding, Trebek bought a plot of land on a mountain, according to the Los Angeles Times. The property purchased covered 35 acres and Trebek and his wife, Jean Currivan built their dream home there.

“We’ll have to cut off the top of the mountain to make a pad, but that’s the kind of thing I enjoy doing,” Trebek told the Times. “I built my chalet in Canada and renovated 3 or 4 houses, so I can do a lot of the work myself, but we’ll have to wait until after the rainy season to start grading. We’ll probably start about the time we get married.”

The couple married on April 30, 1990. Prior to the mountain home, Trebek lived at a home he built on Mulholland Drive in 1984, according to Zillow. He sold that home in 1996 and currently owns a home in Studio City.
