The world, and certainly the United States, is a fundamentally different place today than it was in 1984. But throughout the many twists and turns, the national traumas, and the moments of uncertainty in the last four decades, one thing remained a constant: Alex Trebek. And as trivial (no pun intended) as gameshows may seem, it has to be said that his ability to remain on air, and so universally well-liked for 37 years is remarkable. He was never a star, never a big personality, but even if you didn’t watch “Jeopardy!”, you knew his name, and chances are you didn’t have a bad word to say about him. He had become part of the furniture. And for many, his mere presence was a great comfort. In Alex Trebek, Human Design shows us a man of great warmth and consistency. Let’s have a quick look:
Defined Channel 27-50
Just as his presence was a comfort to the many Jeopardy-obsessed viewers, he was, by all reports, a very warm presence in person as well. And this was written in his Design. With his defined Channel 27-50, he was a deeply caring man whose guests would always comment on how comfortable he made them feel, whether they were winners or losers.
Willful Manifesting Generator
Trebek took over the revamped “Jeopardy!” show in 1984 and has been the only host ever since (save for one episode in 1997, when he switched places with “Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak as an April Fools’ joke). And this consistency is also written right into Alex Trebek’s Human Design. Born into the Personal Life Theme of The Laws, with a Split, 4/6 Willful Manifesting Generator Design, Alex Trebek was uniquely equipped to carve out a niche for himself. And his Channel 3-60, called Mutation, allowed him to not only maintain fair play but also keep the games interesting and innovative, which explains why his show was able to thrive, capturing new audiences decade after decade, while others faded away.
Three activated Gates on the lower side of Alex’s Throat Center gave him the means to consistently maintain an essential leadership role whatever took place during a show, often being the umpire who ruled on answers that were close but not quite complete.
No one can maintain such consistency and quality in their careers if they aren’t naturally passionate about what they do. And Trebek was clearly called to his career. With a great depth of personal knowledge in Gates 2, Receptivity, 48, Freshness and 24, Resolution, and his defined Channel 21-45, The Money Channel, Alex was able to “hold court” and reward intellectuals, knowledge geeks, and trivia wizards from all over the world.
We Love You, Alex!
After his cancer diagnosis, “Jeopardy!” fans rallied around their favorite host, and the two formed an almost familial bond. People held up signs of support during tapings and donated heaps of money to cancer research in his name. And when one contestant failed to come up with an answer on Final Jeopardy, he just wrote, “What is, ‘We love you, Alex!’” on his answer tablet. Trebek’s eyes welled up with tears as he read the response and said, “Thank you.
Trebek finally succumbed to cancer on November 8th at age 80. For Alex Trebek, Human Design illustrates a generous man who cared deeply about what he did and took his role seriously. Needless to say, he will be missed by many.
