Alex Trebek's Eldest Daughter Nicky Reveals Why She Hasn't Watched An Episode of 'Jeopardy!' Since He Passed Away

Alex Trebek‘s daughter Nicky Trebek is opening up about how she hasn’t watched an episode of Jeopardy! since her dad passed away late last year.

Nicky, who once worked on the show in production, opened up on CBS This Morning about her decision not to tune in.

“I have not watched, I have not watched one, my family haven’t watched any at all,” Nicky shared, speaking of her step siblings Emily and Matthew, and their mother, Jean.

She also shared that she ended her run on the show just days “after he passed before Thanksgiving.”

“To me it was his show. It was his show and it’s difficult for me to carry on in this show.”

Nicky also spoke on the program about continuing to work in the battle against pancreatic cancer.

Currently, Mehmet Oz, aka Dr. Oz, is the guest host on Jeopardy! and he hasn’t received a warm welcome from fans.
