Alex Trebek is dead, He had pancreatic cancer and hosted Jeopardy as long as He could, He was 80.

I found watching the show was interesting as one would learn something new.

George Alexander Trebek[2] OC (/tr??b?k/; July 22, 1940 — November 8, 2020) was a Canadian-American television personality, game show host and actor. He has been the host of the syndicated game show Jeopardy! since its revival in 1984, and has also hosted a number of other game shows, including The Wizard of Odds, Double Dare, High Rollers, Battlestars, Classic Concentration, and To Tell the Truth. Trebek was contracted to host Jeopardy! until 2022.[3] Trebek has also made appearances in numerous television series, in which he usually played himself. A native of Canada, he became a naturalized United States citizen in 1998.[4] For his work on Jeopardy!, Trebek has received 31 nominations for the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Game Show Host, winning 7 times.


Now Jeopardy will need a new host as the show must go on.
