The “Jeopardy!” trivia game show threw viewers off kilter when its host, Alex Trebek, revealed a new bearded look Monday.
Trebek showed off his new look on Twitter and then in an Instagram video before Monday’s premiere episode.
“It’s time to embark upon a magical journey into Season 35!” the Instagram description read.
Then on the season debut, he addressed the “hairy” issue.
“No need to inquire how I spent my summer vacation,” Trebek said. “Things got a little out of hand.”
The hashtag #Trebeard also appeared on social media with comments like “beard on” and “#keepthebeard.”
