There's more than a Superman costume hidden beneath Justin Trudeau's suit, according to fellow Canadian Alex Trebek. "He has a buzzer under his shirt that he can use to signal his assistants when it’s time to come and get him," the Jeopardy host told Vulture in a recent interview, claiming to have uncovered the secret while meeting with Trudeau in Ottawa in 2016. "I'm keenly aware of little nuances," Trebek said, per Quartz, noting an assistant appeared 10 seconds after he saw Trudeau reach under his shirt, apparently under the guise of a scratch. The prime minister’s office has denied the claim, though Trebek might've been joking. (Trebek thinks it's a "scary time for men.")
