"Merv Griffin, who developed 'Jeopardy!' and 'Wheel of Fortune,' had a great line once," 'Jeopardy!' host Alex Trebek recalled. "I used to personally answer all the mail that came in to 'Jeopardy!' whether it was favorable or unfavorable, and Merv said, 'You know how I handle the nasty mail?' I said no. He just grabbed it and folded it up and crunched it up and threw it in the wastebasket..."
[As a youngster, Trebek won seven spelling-bee and four science-fair championships.]
