Discussion in 'TV & Media' started by Mr. Laser Beam, Mar 6, 2019.
He says he plans to finish out this season of Jeopardy and will immediately begin chemotherapy.
Finish out the season and then being treatment? For goodness sake -- it's just a TV show! Stop now and try to save yourself, Alex. Geez.
dammit, dammit, dammit. f**k cancer.
Well, that really sucks. I sincerely with Mr. Trebek the absolute best.
On a selfish note: who can replace him on Jeopardy who won't totally blow major chunks and ruin the show? Maybe Ken Jennings?
*psst* I took that part as his dry humor. He wasn't being serious there.
That said, I wish him and his family well and keep them in my prayers.
This story was initially published on 2/22, after Trebek renewed his contract through 2022:
Alex Trebek reveals his picks for the next 'Jeopardy!' host
No no no...
It's okay to spell it out. F-U-C-K CANCER!!!!!!
"What is cancer?"
No offense meant to anyone, as it's done out of affection. I think Alex would appreciate the joke.
Well he was joking that he can't go anywhere because he's under contract for three more years.
Even though most people don't make it past 6 months.
Prayers and positive vibes to Alex Trebek.
He's from where I live. I have a friend who even claimed to be related to him, and while I don't know if it's true, I can kind of even see the resemblance through his father. He hosted many other gameshows before landing Jeopardy and making his mark on that. One of my favourites was Classic Concentration, and another one would be Pitfall.
I kept thinking he was going to retire in the last five years or so. He's been doing Jeopardy since 1984. So for 35 years.
I was wondering if there was a tasteful or empowering way to pay tribute to Mr. Trebek/Jeopardy! that doesn't minimize the scourge that is cancer and this is it.
Sending positive vibes to Mr. Trebek.
Typically, yes, but there have been notable exceptions. Patrick Swayze lasted a year and a half after he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
Still Trebek was joking about how his contract was for three years. I hope he makes it but the numbers are against him. Just enjoy every day as you can.
I took his treatment announcement to mean he's beginning treatment today, and will continue to work for the duration as he receives treatment.
...no more death, not like this...
"Who is the best game show host?"
The answer is--we are all rooting for you....
Locally, there have been some Alex Trebek pins being sold with the proceeds going to the Pancreatic Cancer Foundation in Canada.
