WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- You may not have known it but Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek is a Washington Redskins fan, and he has taken a stance on the team name debate.

In an interview with New Republic published this week, Trebek opened up about his social life. According to the interview, he follows the Redskins during football season and doesn't think the team should change its name.

Trebek is quoted as saying: "They weren't called the Redskins because we thought Redskins were terrible; it's because we admire their strength, their abilities."
