Get Psyched for Yet Another Round of Celebrity Jeopardy!

Since we've already done one post today about the brand-new, Trapper Keeper–esque set on Jeopardy!, we figured it couldn't really hurt to do another one, especially considering that tonight's episode kicks off the latest round of Celebrity Jeopardy! Sadly, the producers weren't able to convince either Sean Connery or Turd Ferguson Burt Reynolds to pick up where their SNL alter egos left off, but this year's crop of smarty-pants celebs DOES include the likes of Andy Richter, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and, somewhat hilariously, Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak. On last night's episode of the Tonight Show, professional sidekick Andy Richter took us behind the scenes of a practice run for tonight's show, which sees him competing against reactionary CNN host Wolf Blitzer and Desperate Housewives star Dana Delaney. Richter, a past Celebrity Jeopardy! champion, managed to win the practice round, but the highlight of the video clearly has to be the footage of longtime Jeopardy! announcer Johnny Gilbert. Call us sheltered if you must, but we've never seen his face before! How could a voice so iconic come out of a guy who looks like he should be a valet?
