Alex Trebek Delivers Compelling Message Ahead Of First Final 'Jeopardy!' Episode

Alex Trebek shared a moving message with the Jeopardy! audience on the first night of his final episodes.

The late host opened up about togetherness and navigating the pandemic together.

“You’ll recall that about a month ago, I asked all of you to take a moment to give thanks for all of the blessings that you enjoy in your lives,” he shared to the camera. “Now, today, a different kind of message. This is the season of giving. I know you want to be generous with your family, your friends, your loved ones.”

Alex went on, saying, “But today, I’d like you to go one step further. I’d like you to open up your hands and open up your hearts to those who are still suffering because of COVID-19.”

“People who are suffering through no fault of their own,” he adds. “We’re trying to build a gentler, kinder society and if we all pitch in — just a little bit — we’re gonna get there.”

Alex‘s final episodes are airing this week, with guest hosts taking over the week of January 11.

Earlier today, it was revealed that Alex had spent a week in the hospital just before hosting his final episodes.
