Alex Trebek passed away over the weekend at age 80. He was the host of numerous game shows including Card Sharks & High Rollers over his career. But of course he is legendary for his hosting of Jeopardy since 1984.
On March 6, 2019, Trebek announced he had been diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer. With that in mind viewers have been treasuring these episodes knowing that the end is probably near. He recorded his final episode on October 29th. He died 10 days later on November 8th.
Jeopardy announced the final episode with Alex as host will air Christmas day. The show will include a brief farewell statement Trebek had prepared before his diagnosis.
