Alex Trebek may soon be the only Canadian on Jeopardy. The game show is longer accepting Canadians. We got reaction from a former contestant from Kamloops.

Alex Trebek may be the only Canadian we'll see on Jeopardy any more. The game show has stopped accepting applications from Canadian contestants. Apparently, it has something to do with privacy laws. For reaction, Kamloops' Mike Garrett joined Shelley Joyce in the studio. He was a Jeopardy contestant in 2012.
