Monday night’s “Jeopardy!” game got unexpectedly emotional.
Alex Trebek has recently revealed that he’s undergoing additional treatment for Stage 4 pancreatic cancer and one of the contestants, Dhruv Gaur, knew he wasn’t going to be advancing so he used his answer as a tribute to Trebek.
The category was “Famous Phrases” and the clue was “In the title of a groundbreaking 1980 expose of poverty in New York City slums, these three words follow ‘How the.'”
Gaur’s response was “What is: We love you, Alex!”. Trebek couldn’t hold back the emotion after reading that. Check out the clip below.
