As a Canadian, I have watched and been a fan of Alex Trebek's work since the 1960s. As a fan of Jeopardy, I was always impressed by his professionalism and generosity. Even last week, his recently taped shows from his 37th season of Jeopardy revealed his kindness and strong work ethic. He will be missed.

Since all French Canadians are related (in my experience), I checked, and we're 8th cousins.

This is such sad news to hear of his passing. Jeopardy will not be the same without him on the show. No one will be able to replace him, he will be truly missed.

They said on CNN today that he hosted over 8000 episodes in 37 years.

Someone from the show also said that Trebek's FINAL episode is set to be aired on Xmas day this year - 25 Dec 2020.
