That was so sweet. Dhruv really did speak for us all. ❤
He passed away.
Updated to the official statement so as not to drive traffic to TMZ.
Even though I knew (by his own admission) that things weren’t going well, I am still shocked and always hoped for some sort of miracle. He’s been part of so many lives for so long.
I've shared my personal connection to Alex and Jeopardy! in the memorial thread, but I just wanted to also mention here how thankful I am to have been able to enjoy watching his hosting of Classic Concentration over the last year or so on Buzzr. Everyone knows Jeopardy! mode Alex, but it's just so fun to watch him with a more playful game format.
Alex holds the distinction of being the only host to helm three daily daytime game shows in the US at once for a few months in 1991 - Jeopardy! in syndication and Concentration and To Tell the Truth on NBC. The previous year, he beat himself at the Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Game Show when he was nominated for both J! and CC (tied with Bob). I believe he was nominated for both shows again in '91.
I hope that more of his first hit game, High Rollers, shows up. Buzzr would probably give it the proper showcase it deserves if those tapes are ever found. We mostly see Alex as the wise man of game shows these days, but in the 70s, he represented a new era of young, hip hosts who injected some energy and quickness into the genre. It would be great to see more that.
Oh, no. Such tragic news to hear and read. RIP Mr. Trebek, and may God be with you and your loved ones always.
Ugh the awfulness of this year doesn't quite end with Biden/Harris. I know this is not a surprise based on his comments a few months ago, but still sad. Such a loss.
Alex Trebek on Cheers when Cliff was a contestant on Jeopardy:
One of my favorite game shows and one of my favorite game show hosts.
Jeopardy will never be the same again.
RIP Alex Trebek
