Answer: The favorite Los Angeles neighborhood of Jeopardy host Alex Trebek.

Question: What is Studio City?

A few months ago when we visited the set of Jeopardy to cheer on a friend, Alex Trebek started his usual Q & A with the audience. The rules: don't ask how much he makes and don't ask overly personal questions. Easy enough. So why not ask a geeky Los Angeles question?

Alex lives in Studio City and loves it for all the easily accessible amenities. As a man who loves to take care of his home gardens, he is particularly fond of having nearby stores to grab some dirt and flower seeds. Even in one of the most metropolitan parts of the Valley, everything you need is where you are.

Alex also mentioned that he will never eat at Jack in the Box again after the Sirloin Steak and Cheddar Burger commercial. You know, the commercial where they announce they have invented a car that runs on water only to be interrupted by an important news alert about Jack's new hamburger. That was a nasty trick.
