Rest in Peace to the one of the greatest game show hosts ever and a brilliant mind. He was also a huge inspiration to those dealing with cancer on how to stay positive through tough roads.

Damn it. He seemed like a very decent man. Cancer friggin' sucks. Which is the PG-13 phraseology that's permissible on this forum. Condolences to the family.

I'll miss him.

My father loved watching Jeopardy and trying to guess the answers. As a matter of fact, it was the last show he watched before he died in the critical care unit.

Along with Bob Barker, the GOAT. RIP.

Sorry, but Most non-Americans wouldn’t know him

Everybody who knows, recognizes instantly the Jeopardy "Think" music

Best exactly 30-second timer to put down your final answer, RIP Alex

Canadians know one of their own quite well : )

For decades, whenever I went back to visit the States, I timed my evenings around watching this show with my parents. When my father was 83 and completely blind, he correctly answered a Final Jeopardy that stumped all three contestants. (I didn't know the question either.)

RIP Alex, you were the best Daily Double of all.

Was he very famous in Japan?

That guy was smart.

Another icon my generation grew up with has passed. Getting older kind of sucks. I always enjoyed the show and guessing on my own. And Alex always was pretty cool, never trying to be funny or acting obnoxious or stupid.

RIP ALEX TREBEK. You were the BEST.

Answer: A true icon of daily television. The best mustache in the game. And he was the inspiration for one of the greatest SNL skits ever.

Question: Who was Alex Trebek.
