Tournament of Champions that aired Monday, Dhruv Gaur '21 captured the spotlight with his heartfelt message to the show's longtime host, Alex Trebek.

"When Final Jeopardy came up, I could've tried to puzzle it together, but really, just kept thinking about Alex, and thought he should know".

He simply wrote "We Love You Alex" with a heart instead of the word love.

After reading his answer it took a moment for Trebek to gather himself before responding, "That's very kind, thank you".

All three contestants were also wearing purple ribbons in support of Trebek, who is battling Stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

When Trebek saw that Gaur gave up almost all of his remaining $2,000 on the incorrect answer.

"I'm simply very grateful I acquired the chance to say what I do know everybody was considering".

Trebek revealed in September that his doctor had ordered him to have chemotherapy against after taking a short break from treatment. So, hey, I've lived a good life, a full life, and I'm nearing the end of that life. Every day, more than 1,200 people worldwide will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and an estimated 1,180 die from the disease. In an interview with CTV News, Trebek said that he would continue hosting the show "as long as my skills do not diminish".

The moment came on rather unexpectedly during the episode's Final Jeopardy. One thing they're not going to say at my funeral as part of a eulogy: 'He was taken from us too soon.' I'm 79 years old.

"I used to be impressed to offer by Alex Trebek, the host of Jeopardy! and somebody who I've seemed as much as my complete life", he mentioned.

He teamed up with the World Pancreatic Cancer Coalition last month for a public service announcement.
