Which game show host is a Guinness World Record holder? The answer is Alex Trebek. The “Jeopardy” host was awarded a certificate from Guinness on Friday for the “most game show episodes hosted by the same presenter” – 6,829.

According to People magazine the 73-year-old has hosted the show since 1984, asked over 400,000 questions but doesn’t plan on quitting anytime soon. In a video released commemorating the achievement Trebek said, “I want to continue for a few more years,” then adding when talking about the honor that it, “is the kind of record that can be replaced.”

“The good news is as long as I keep hosting the program,” he continued. “I stay ahead of whoever’s in second place and that makes me feel good.”

The Canadian-born host also revealed that he’s planning on  hanging the certificate on the stairway leading to his bedroom so he can see it every day.
