After Alex Trebek opened the new season of “Jeopardy!” with a silver beard , the host is going through some changes.

On Tuesday he went to a goatee look. The show posted a video with the caption: “Next stop: Goatee City. Population: #AlexTrebeard”

On Wednesday he took it a little further and now is sporting a mustache . The show tweeted: ”Best mustache in Hollywood – hands down. Don’t @ us.”

Fans reactions to the whole facial hair saga has been all over the map with admirers and detractors.

What’s in store for tomorrow?

Last week Trebek opened the 35th season of “Jeopardy!” with his first-ever onscreen beard. In 1989 when the show started, Trebek wore a mustache and then in 2014 for the show’s 30th anniversary, he returned to his mustached-look for the first time in 13 years.

He has been clean-shaven most recently.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
