This home has 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths and is located at 7966 Mulholland Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90046.

The answer: What is Alex Trebek’s former home.

Trebek built the 5,554-square-foot Hollywood Hills residence in 1984, the same year he started hosting “Jeopardy!” He went on to sell the 2.05-acre compound 12 years later, but his name remains etched in the master closet.

Now back on the market for $3.995 million, the home’s glitzy entertainment spaces and ultra-modern furnishings might not jive with Americans’ image of the stoic, white-haired game-show host or its current owner, a foreign diplomat. But when Trebek lived here, an ’80s bachelor pad wasn’t out of the question — he had recently divorced his first wife and lived in the home for six years before marrying his current spouse, Jean.

Today, the home is filled with curvy red-velvet chairs, zebra-print pillows, a black jetted tub, fish tank, pool table, wet bar and gym.

“It’s very modern,” said listing agent Emanouel Ourshano of Platinum Estates. “I can’t see a husband and wife and two kids living in the house. It’s more for an up-and-coming superstar — a celebrity who wants to enjoy their youth and money.”

Trebek currently owns a 6-bedroom home in Studio City. He has earned five Outstanding Game Show Host Emmy Awards a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame throughout his career.
