We love you Alex:’ Trebek chokes up over ‘Jeopardy!’ contestant’s heartfelt answer

Trebek is battling cancer and was noticeably moved by Gaur's gesture as it caught him by surprise. The memorable moment happened during the segment of the game known as Final Jeopardy in which contestants give their final answers to one last question in hopes of getting it correct and possibly winning overall. Gaur wrote on his answer, worth $1,995.

"What is We (heart) you, Alex!" the longtime host, who is now battling stage 4 pancreatic cancer, read when expecting to see Dhruv's answer.

After reading his answer it took a moment for Trebek to gather himself before responding, "That's very kind, thank you".

Fans of "Jeopardy!" have been vocal on social media about their support for the host since the announcement. In the space where contestants typically write their response, Gaur instead wrote, "We [Heart] You, Alex!"

Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions victor Alex Jacob shared the moment on Twitter, adding: "There was a mistake in tonight's Final Jeopardy".

It is pretty much impossible to watch this clip without getting choked up.

Trebek, who has hosted "Jeopardy!" for 35 years, revealed in March that he has been diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer - one of the fastest moving and deadliest types of cancer.
