Forums - General Discussion - 'Jeopardy' Host Alex Trebek Has Stage Four Pancreatic Cancer

This really sucks, I'm not a huge Jeopardy fan, but I do enjoy to turn it on every once and a while. The best part of the show is normally Trebek, the dude is just a great host. He also seems to be a just a truly great guy. its horrible to hear he has a cancer that has about a 1% survival rate.

That's really sad to hear but it's awesome how he's such a positive guy.



Ugh, it had to be pancreatic. He's basically a dead man walking now, and he must know it. That has to be weird to be famous and beloved and to publicly announce something like this. It would be like attending your own funeral.



That damn cancer.



Super sad. My wife and I have Jeopardy on once in a while eating dinner with my infant son. I just realized my boy is going to grow up not ever knowing who Trebek is.

You hit Double Jeopardy!

I bet 500 Cyclecris.

Answer: Who is a great guy and I hope he overcomes the odds?

....Who is Alex Trebec?


Cycycchris: That is correct for 500 points and Spurgeonryan is in the lead!

Yeah this is very sad, I wish the best for him and his family. I know it's selfish but man, it's going to be strange not seeing Alex host Jeopardy anymore. I hope he spends what time he has left well, man this sucks.



Terrible news to hear. My mom had stage 4 as well. For most, it's basically over once you're that late into it. I commend him for fighting. I really really hope he can make it through.



Jeopardy and Alex Trebek have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Even though I don't really watch it anymore, it just feels good knowing that they're there. It's a thread to simpler times when my grandparents were here and I was a school kid. It's kinda scary knowing that it's all likely coming to an end.

And, for the man himself, I don't think I've ever heard a bad thing about him. He's had a hell of a run but, being selfish, I'd like to keep him around a little longer. Praying for him.
