Alex Trebek Has Emotional Moment After Contestants Answer
Alex Trebek is the man when it comes to game shows. He's right up there with Bob Barker, Richard Dawson and Chuck Woolery. Alex took over as the host for Jeopardy in 1984 and has been a mainstay since. Recently he disclosed that he was diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer which shocked the industry by storm.
I grew up watching Jeopardy with my grandmother and even my mom on days when I got out of school. Obviously we've never had the chance to be a contestant, but I remember my grandma watching the show and contributing answers to the show like she was right there.
During a recent episode of Jeopardy one of the contestant had Alex along with the rest of the world choked up with their final answer. I don't believe there was a dry eye in the house when this moment happened. Watch the emotional moment below.
Alex is truly a gem when it comes to game show television and is one of those guys we look up to from childhood. It really shows the courage that he has in the fight against Cancer and the determination that he has to beat it. We are rolling with you Alex and we here at 107 Jamz love you as well.
