He Bought a House Just to Use the Tennis Courts
What happens when you want to play tennis, but you can't bear the thought of slumming it on the public tennis courts with all those plebeians? Why, you purchase your own, of course. In the 1990s, Trebek bought an entire property just to use the tennis courts.
Trebek rented out the house to actor Pete Ross and his wife Carol, but apparently he wasn't exactly a top-notch landlord. The Rosses called him the day after they moved in—apparently, the place had serious plumbing and electrical issues.
