Jeopardy Host Alex Trebek Sadly Passes Away At 80

I am a smart guy. I know, being smart is not something you’re allowed to brag about. You can brag about Pass Completion Ratings in Football, Batting .330 in Baseball, or a great Goals Allowed Average in Hockey, but don’t you dare ever make someone feel less smart by knowing stuff. However, there was one place to show off, Jeopardy. Unfortunately, Jeopardy host Alex Trebek passed away at 80 this morning.

I always wanted to be on Jeopardy. I watch it almost nightly and I have taken the contestant test several times. Unfortunately, a series of health issues pretty much means I’ll never get on. To put the icing on this s#!& cake, I will never get to meet Alex Trebek now.

Legendary

I do not think any person has ever had a negative thing to say about Jeopardy’s host. Alex Trebek was always a pleasure to watch and his interactions with contestants are famous. Last year’s marathon winner, James Holzhauer(33 Wins and $2.4m in prize money) had many famous moments with Alex. Some of the funniest moments from that month were when Alex would offer sympathy to the challengers facing Holzhauer.

Countless former contestants and fans have been expressing their gratitude, memories, and feelings about the Jeopardy host. Twitter is filled with the stories of the legend we lost this morning:

This is really heartbreaking and I am not sure exactly where to file these emotions away at. I feel similar to when Stan Lee died almost three years ago. So many people that have been a major part of my life are passing away. Time keeps moving, and I hate it.

What is Rest In Peace… Alex.
