    He was filming up until a little over a week before his death. The last day he filmed was October 29th. His final episode is supposed to air on Christmas Day.

    I knew this day was coming, yet it was still jarring to hear. I got many texts today about his passing because my friends all knew that we watched jeopardy religiously. I’m so sad. RIP Mr Trebek you were a true pioneer.
    See, Whores, we are good for something. Love, Florida

    20 months is incredible and the way he did it was incredible. To be in the public eye, it amazed me. Alek was a true gentleman and you could see how kind and fair he was. He had a great life and will be deeply missed.

    My Pa was suggesting that we go on a show as a family but my brain doesn't work like that under pressure- apparently it's a *thing* with dyslexics that you can't process as fast & it goes haywire under pressure.

    I lived in Ottawa during my school days and to this day never cease to be awed by the Parliament buildings, they're gorgeous. The Jeopardy theme song emanating from them has me weeping like a baby!
