Watch Jeopardy!'s Tribute to Alex Trebek

Jeopardy! Honours Alex Trebek With a Moving Tribute: "Thank You For Everything"

On Nov. 9, a day after Jeopardy! announced Alex Trebek's death from pancreatic cancer, the show posted a message on YouTube from executive producer Mike Richards. In the video — which served as the cold open to Monday's episode of Jeopardy! — you can see Richards holding back tears as he honours Trebek's 30-year legacy as the host of the show. "He loved this show and everything it stood for," Richards states before revealing that Trebek shot his last episodes a mere two weeks before his death. Trebek's final 35 episodes will be aired as they were shot, because "that's what he wanted."

Trebek wasn't just a host, he was an inspiration to many, and Richards makes sure to note that: "He will forever be an inspiration for his constant desire to learn, his kindness, and for his love of his family. . . . On behalf of everyone here at Jeopardy!, thank you for everything, Alex." You can watch the full tribute above.
