More than two months after Alex Trebek’s death, fans of “Jeopardy!” finally had a chance to say goodbye.The video paying tribute to the host ended Friday’s quiz show, which was the last Trebek recorded before pancreatic cancerOn November 8.
This is a 90-second montage. Hugh Jackman sings Peter Allen’s song “Once Before I Go” (Once Before I Go). It is a lighthearted and laughable memory , Shows Trebek’s changing face during his 36 years as a host, with a beard, no beard, black hair, and gray, with a suit for decades.
It celebrated the horrible moments of Trebek, who is usually surrounded by the strait, and showed him verbal sparring with contestants and competition for arms with them.
“You really make me feel inadequate,” he told a child player. “I’m sorry,” she replied lightly.
Trebek walks in loose pants in one clip, dresses up like the Statue of Liberty in another clip, and wears a Trojan soldier’s costume in another clip.
Over the years, in scenes where the protagonist dances, a scene where the host declares “I don’t dance” is shown.
However, the tribute is still sad and sentimental, as Jackman sings: “When there are too many words in your eyes, it’s hard to say goodbye,” and “Once I’m gone, I want to tell you that I will do it again .”
At the last moment, it shows Trebek through decades of signature, repeatedly saying: “Everyone, for so long.”
Trebek died on November 8 at the age of 80, but he has pre-recorded the show for several weeks and continues to air it. After being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, he continued to work for nearly two years, and has been on the stage since 1984.
The show will continue next week, Starting from the veteran “Jeopardy!” Champion Ken Jennings.
This week’s final Trebek episode starts on Monday, with the host urging viewers to provide help to those suffering from the coronavirus pandemic.

His last few performances were originally scheduled to be aired during Christmas week, but they were postponed until this week to allow more people to get exposure.
The set contains holiday elements, such as the “Christmas Movie” category.
Among the 500,000 clues passed to participants in Trebek’s more than 8,200 episodes, the last one is what he said:
“Basically, this heart-pounding Frank Capra classic is about a frustrating financier, the experience of Christmas Eve is incredible.”
The correct answer is: “What is a good life?”
Trebek is obviously not sure whether the episode last Friday was the last episode he recorded.
The executive producer of the show, Mike Richards, stated on NBC’s “Today” program on Monday that despite the “great pain”, Trebek was still an “absolute warrior in the final recording session.” “.
At the end of the episode, before the video tribute, Trebek said: “See you next week.”
