The world has lost yet another remarkable person this year. Alex Trebek from Jeopardy! passed away November 8, 2020, leaving us feeling both sadness and nostalgia for an incredible host and an impeccable show.
I probably started watching Jeopardy! in the womb. As soon as I was physically capable of gathering and remembering facts, I’d sit down before the evening news and flex my knowledge while blurting at the TV. If you love a cheeky quiz as much as I do, I’m sure you can relate. Alex Trebek carried one of the greatest game shows of all time. And he definitely brought us some great moments. Let’s look back on some of the times he made the country smile.
