Alex Trebek Ate 5 'Special' Brownies One Time and Slept for 3 Days

Alex Trebek looks like the kind of guy who goes home after taping Jeopardy!, drinks a cup of chamomile tea, and then falls asleep reading a book about World War II. But apparently Trebek has a few party stories from his past, and he just spilled his best one to Howard Stern.

When Stern pressed him for tales of debauchery, Trebek admitted he got that out of his system quick in his younger years. A little drinking, a little weed, one brush with cocaine, and that was it. Yet fate hilariously intervened at a party Trebek attended, where the hosts had provided several snacks... including a plate of brownies. Trebek loves chocolate, so he inhaled "four or five." He didn't realize they were special brownies, though, and proceeded to pass out. For three days. That was supposedly Trebek's last brush with hash, but man did he make it count:


Kristin Hunt is a Food/Drink staff writer for Thrillist, and would love to talk to the hosts of this party. Follow her at @kristin_hunt.
