Alex Trebek Gets Emotional After 'Jeopardy!&apos Contestant Shares Message of Support in Final Jeopardy

Alex Trebek had an emotional moment on the November 11 episode of 'Jeopardy!' when a contestant sent him love in his answer for the final round of the game and fans were truly touched.

"What is We (heart) you, Alex!" the longtime host, who is now battling stage 4 pancreatic cancer, read when expecting to see Dhruv's answer.

"That's very kind, thank you", Trebek said, while the emotion of the moment overtook him.

Trebek has been battling a lot lately after being diagnosed earlier this year with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

"What is, we love you, Alex!" read the response, which had to be made in the form of a question.

Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions victor Alex Jacob shared the moment on Twitter, adding: "There was a mistake in tonight's Final Jeopardy".

He teamed up with the World Pancreatic Cancer Coalition to make a video last month encouraging people to wear purple in November and help spread the word about the disease and its symptoms on social media.

"The thought of the pancreatic cancer does not frighten me", he said in an interview with CTV.

Trebek, who has hosted Jeopardy! since 1984, returned to work in August after a successful round of chemotherapy, but he recently suffered a setback in his treatment and restarted chemotherapy.
