Eddie Huang disrespected late host Alex Trebek

Sunday’s broadcast of Celebrity Jeopardy! featured author and chef Eddie Huang, singer Reggie Watts, and comedian Iliza Shlesinger. The food personality likes to keep it real when it comes to his fashion. He made an appearance on the game show dressed in black complete with sunglasses.

Some fans couldn’t get over his look. They thought he was disrespecting the late Alex Trebek. Huang became known best-known for his book, Fresh Off the Boat, which inspired the popular ABC sitcom. The provocateur wanted to keep his eyes covered during the game. Celebrity Jeopardy! fans stormed Twitter to call him out for his wardrobe choice.

Others were just concerned about Huang’s vision. They wondered if he could see the clues during the game. It’s likely that he wanted to wear the sunglasses because of the flashing lights.

  • “Take off your glasses!”
  • “Have some respect for the late Alex Trebek stage!”
  • “My main question so far is how can Eddie see with sunglasses? I have a hard enough time with regular glasses.”
  • “I’ve never seen nobody [sic] wear sunglasses on Jeopardy! before.”

One fan mentioned a rule that takes place on Jeopardy! Players aren’t allowed to wear sunglasses, but celebrities can bend the rules a little. Other fans were disappointed with the celebrity contestants. They called them “dumb” and “painful” to watch.

  1. I have never heard of these contestants, of who they are. Because there are rules for regular contestants, the rules should apply to celebrities as well. I feel same as other fans and I give this guy thumbs down 👎. I don’t believe his claim about the lights and to me, he put the glasses on just to look sharp in front of the camera. Shame on him.
