Trebek tears up at contestant’s Final Jeopardy answer

Studio 814

A thoughtful “Jeopardy!” contestant brings host Alex Trebek to tears. 

Dhruv Gaur wrote a message to Trebek as his answer during the Final Jeopardy round on Monday night’s show. It was obviously not correct, but Trebek was touched by the gesture. Right before Gaur’s message, Trebek had shared with them that he was re-entering treatment for pancreatic cancer.

Gaur tweeted: “When Final Jeopardy came up, I could’ve tried to puzzle it together, but really, just kept thinking about Alex, and I thought he should know.”

Since announcing his diagnosis in March, Trebek has been working to make people more aware of Pancreatic Cancer.
