    I bet the guy knew the answer too, you know in life it’s about enjoying the good things, being a good man, being there for others, this guy gets it, and well I respect Alex and this man. Also life is about loving those you care about like my girlfriend, your loved ones etc. just remember “What is the Key to life is happiness? “Correct.”

      Alex is a pretty modest guy. It probably meant the world to him, but he just seems shy about that sort of thing. He's the same was with his cancer too, he honors other people batting it but doesn't put himself out there as often.

  • Mandolindley Road Show

    Even if he knew the answer it and had added "We love you, Alex," it would have been nice. But this was extra special. The correct answer, by the way is - How The Other Half Lives.

    Alex Trebek, if nothing else was a Very Big and even Exclusive Friend of the State of Israel - and not coincidentally...so was the Jeopardy TV Program! It seemed that Alex Trebek while Hosting Jeopardy used every opportunity to "Promote and to Revere and Venerate" the State of Israel and any and all "Pro Israel Supporters" ! Why did Trebek do this ? Maybe because Pro Israel Folks OWN the Jeopardy Show and they saw the Opportunity to use it as a Vehicle for their Pro Israel Propaganda? One thing neither Alex Trebek nor Jeopardy never ever did was to Promote the Palestinians or show them the least bit of Regard,Humanity or Sympathy! That the Cowardly War Mongering and Genocidal State of Israel was Systematically and Continually Abusing Torturing and Murdering Defenseless Palestinians had No Effect on the Producers of Jeopardy or on the Non Existent Sympathy and Humanity of Slickster Alex Trebek! That willing Pro Israel Propagandist Alex Trebek has the "Blood" of Innocent Palestinians on his Hands is Undeniable but it also doesn't really matter..but only to those people who want to show someone as Treacherous and Depraved as Alex Trebek their "Sympathy" for his (in comparison) Petty Health Issues !
