As Tropical Storm Andrea throws heavy rain and high-speed winds along the East Coast of the United States, I've got another Andrea on my mind. Beverly Hills, 90210's Andrea Zuckerman, the ambitious high schooler at West Beverly High who challenged all-around good guy and protagonist Brandon Walsh on a regular basis, sticks in my mind as just the kind of nerdy gal that _flossers would support. Here, six of her memorable moments on the show.

Wrong School District

One of the key plots in the beginning of the series was Andrea's residence on the other side of Beverly Hills. Here, Brandon and Steve convince her to stay at their school.

The High School Newspaper

Brandon and Andrea worked closely on the West Beverly High newspaper—but not always so harmoniously.

Brandon and Andrea

The on-again, off-again, could-be, maybe relationship between Brandon and Andrea created tension among the group.

Baby on Board

In a shocking twist, good girl Andrea became pregnant in college.

Wedding

In season four, Andrea married Jesse at City Hall.

The Last Episode

Andrea made a brief appearance in the last episode of 90210 when she attended Donna and David's wedding.

Today, everyone's favorite game show host turns 76 years old. Let's celebrate!

ON SESAME STREET

In 2006, Trebek played “Special of the Day” with Telly.

ON CARD SHARKS

In 1980, the tables were turned, and Trebek found himself the contestant on this episode of Card Sharks. The “tell me about yourself” portion of the program doesn’t go so smoothly, but he’s pretty good at the game itself.

THROWING PEOPLE IN THE POOL

In this sketch for the 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, Trebek throws a waiter in a pool. The takeaway is clear: Don’t phrase things in the form of a question when you’re talking to the Jeopardy! host.

TREBEK ON NASA

And how the agency’s work with other companies helps all of us, not just astronauts.

HOSTING WHEEL OF FORTUNE

Happy April Fool's Day 1997! (Pat Sajak hosted Jeopardy that night.)

ALEX, AUTOTUNED

MC TREBEK IN THE HIZZOUSE

That was the actual name of the category.

AND JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT IT COULDN'T GET ANY WEIRDER...

Behold “Sexiest Potpourri Ever.”

LAST BUT NOT LEAST...

You didn’t think we’d leave without posting one of these, did you?

On this day in 1970, Janis Joplin died of a heroin overdose at the age of 27. The singer-songwriter was known as "The Queen of Psychedelic Soul." Here, we remember Joplin with covers of her only number-one hit, "Me and Bobby McGee." Joplin's version of the song, originally written by Kris Kristofferson and Fred Foster, topped the charts after her death, making the song the second posthumous number-one single in U.S. chart history.
