He is best known for hosting the game show Jeopardy! and is a 7-time Emmy Award winner. As an actor, Alex featured in several movies like The Nanny, The Earth Special Day, and The Short Cut.
While her father was a prominent TV personality, Emily’s mother, Jean Currivan, was a real estate agent who became famous for being the wife of Alex Trebek. While growing up, Emily used to join her father to host some of his shows.
Meet Emily Trebek’s Siblings
Emily Trebek is the last child of her father, however, she has two other siblings; Mathew Trebek and Nicky Trebek. Emily’s elder brother, Mathew, is a graduate of Fordham University where he studied Communication and Business Administration. He went on to join the national bartenders’ school where he studied Mixology and became an expert Mixologist. He has worked in a renowned organization and now owns his restaurant ‘Oso’. Though his father was not in support of his choice of career, he has become successful nevertheless. While growing up, Mathew was also featured in his father’s TV shows.
Nicky Trebek is Emily’s step-sister. She is the adopted daughter of Alex Trebek‘s first marriage to American businesswoman, Elaine Callei Trebek. The union ended in 1981. Nicky worked in production on her father’s show, Jeopardy, and also on other television programs and feature films. She is also a model who has modeled in consumer ads in Glamour, Cosmo, Allure, Self, Vogue, and Mademoiselle magazines.
Emily Studied Architecture In The University
Despite being close to her father and featuring in TV shows with him when she was younger, Emily Trebek did not follow his career path. She would rather follow the footsteps of her mother who was a real estate agent.
While growing up, she developed an interest in building designs and wanted to learn about them and so, she followed her dreams by pursuing a degree in Design and Architecture. She first attended Campbell Hill in California before joining Loyola Marymount University.
She Runs An Interior Design Studio
Just like her mother, Emily Trebek is currently pursuing a career as a real estate agent. Aside from helping homeowners and landowners sell their properties, she also runs an interior design studio. She owns an interior design business called E&S Interiors, so she does not just assist clients with buying a property, she is also fully involved in converting the space into something beautiful.
As a young lady, Emily is successful in her business venture. It has been reported that she has transacted multi-million dollar businesses, some of which include a $1 million house transaction she handled in West Hollywood and another $1.5 million home project she executed at Culver City.
Not following her father’s career footsteps did not turn out so bad, as her chosen career path has given her an estimated net worth of $1.5 million – most of her earnings come from her real estate and interior design business.
Though her net worth is incredible in itself, it is incomparable to that of her father, Alex Trebek. The late TV personality was way richer than his daughter Emily with a net worth of about $75 million.
Emily Trebek Lost Her Father In 2020
Although neither of Alex Trebek’s children with his wife, Jean Currivan, followed his career path, Alex was never known to be at loggerheads with them. He had a happy family even until old age. In 2007, he suffered from a minor heart attack. Many years later, in 2019 when Emily’s father was about 79 years old, he announced to his fans that he had been diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer. Being someone who loved his job and was dedicated to it, he was determined not to stop presenting his popular show, Jeopardy!.
Alex had a contract to present the show until 2022 and was not willing to let cancer stop him from fulfilling his contract with the production team. He was very open about his medical status and did not fail to keep fans updated about what his treatment was like. Sadly, after a battle with pancreatic cancer for over one year, he gave up the ghost on the 8th of November 2020 at his home in Los Angeles at the age of 80.
Losing him was a great loss for his wife and children, especially Emily who was very close to her father. An obvious fact is that he affected their lives one way or another, at least by bringing them to the limelight.
Emily Trebek Is In A Relationship
Being the daughter of a well-known TV personality and respected man in the entertainment industry has attracted so much attention to Emily Trebek. However, aside from her business, she has managed to keep a lot of other involvements away from the public.
One thing we have learned though is that the beautiful daughter of late Alex Trebek may be in a relationship, even though the identity of the person has not been revealed to the public yet. As a result of her private nature, it is also difficult to lay hands on the identity of other men who she may have dated in the past.
There have been reports that her current boyfriend is a former collegemate called Allen, who she started dating while she was in college. But she is yet to confirm or deny this information. And though she keeps her relationship life under wraps, we know that Emily Trebek is not married.
Her desire to live a private life is so real that for someone as young as she is, she is not active on any known social media platform. Despite her effort to live a low-key life, her career success speaks loudly for her, as she is recognized among other young and successful entrepreneurs like herself.
