Alex Trebek had an emotional moment with a contestant on tonight’s episode of Jeopardy.
The 79-year-old host received an unexpected response from contestant Dhruv Gaur during the episode on Monday (November 11).
During the Final round, Dhruv offered a sweet message of support to Alex.
On the screen where contestants usually write their answers, Dhruv instead wrote, “We [Heart] You, Alex!”
“That’s very kind,” Alex responded while getting choked up, thanking Dhruv before returning to his hosting duties.
Alex Trebek revealed his Stage 4 pancreatic cancer diagnosis back in March.
Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions winner Alex Jacob posted a video on Twitter, captioning it, “.@Jeopardy There was a mistake in tonight’s Final #Jeopardy, @dhruvg_ is actually correct.”
