“Jeopardy” contestant Dhruv Gaur had a heartfelt moment for Alex Trebek on Monday.
With $2,000 on the line, Gaur stunned the world with his response to the question, “In the title of a groundbreaking 1890 exposé of poverty in New York City slums, these 3 words follow ‘How the.’” (SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes)
Gaur bet $1,995 and wrote, “What is we (heart) you, Alex!” The incorrect answer left him with only $5, but Trebek, who is battling pancreatic cancer, was visibly shaken by the touching moment. (SLIDESHOW: 142 Times Josephine Skriver Barely Wore Anything)

Instead, he chose to lose virtually all of it in order to share a special message for the famous gameshow host. Damn, I think I need a tissue right now.
According to the Gainesville Times, Gaur had competed in “Jeopardy” before back in 2018, and I think it’s safe to say we’re now able to call him a legend of the game.
Our thoughts and prayers are with him. There’s no question he’s one of the good guys.
