The case of the missing mustache

Where did Alex Trabek's mustache go?

I was watching Jeopardy! tonight and remarked on how ridiculous his new mustache looked when, after a commercial break, it disappeared! What could have possible happened? Here's some photo evidence:

Keep in mind: same episode. WTF?

Did you miss the beginning? Maybe it was a joke he mentioned earlier.

Best answer: It was most likely an April Fool's joke. Apparently, the Jeopardy! website posted a picture of Alex with a moustache earlier today. This seems like part of the ruse.

Yep, he has a mustache on the front page, even though he hasn't actually had one in years.

Just in case you decide to search online for info, his last name is spelled Trebek.

As for an answer, maybe they pieced the show together from footage shot over two days and the forgot that he had shaved?
