Ellen DeGeneres Meets Contestant Who Made Alex Trebek Emotional on 'Jeopardy!' - Watch!

Ellen DeGeneres is meeting the man who made Alex Trebek choke up on Jeopardy!, which quickly went viral.

The daytime TV host invited 20-year-old contestant Dhruv Gaur to The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday (November 14).

During the sixth day of the Tournament of Champions, Dhruv wagered $1,995 of his $2,000 in Final Jeopardy. Instead of guessing the correct answer, he wrote, “We love you Alex!” showing the host, who is battling Stage 4 pancreatic cancer, his love.

During his appearance, he revealed how he spent his $100K winnings from the last time he was on Jeopardy!

Plus, Ellen surpriseed Dhruv with a TCL Roku TV to watch the tournament and a $25K donation to the Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research in support of Alex, thanks to Shutterfly.
