A heartfelt, pre-recorded message of the late “Jeopardy!” presenter Alex Trebek reminded his fans to hope despite the pandemic and asked viewers to “keep the faith.”
Trebek, who died on Nov. 8 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer, continued filming “Jeopardy!” during her cancer treatments and regularly shared emotional moments with fans and competitors
The official “Jeopardy!” invoice tweeted the video on Thursday. “We are at the top of the list of things we can be grateful for this year: Alex’s Thanksgiving message from today’s show. We hope you have a safe and happy Thanksgiving! The post can be read.
In the short and sweet video, Trebek said, “even though America and the rest of the world are experiencing it now, there are many reasons to be grateful.”
“More and more people are offering a helping hand to please their neighbors, and that’s a good thing,” he said. “Keep the faith. We will go through all this and become a better society because of this.”
Trebek has been the face of the trivia show since 1984. In October 2018, he renewed his contract with Sony Pictures Television and planned to continue running the show until 2022.
