Alex Trebek Hints His 'Jeopardy!' Days May Be Numbered — but Who Could Replace Him?

By

Since receiving a diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer, Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek has been open with fans about his health, which has been through some highs and lows. After several months of treatment, he announced he had finished cancer treatment and was feeling great, but unfortunately, he experienced a setback just a few weeks later.

On Sept. 17, the host, who has been delivering clues to trivia masters for over 35 years, told GMA that after the first round of treatment, his numbers had been in the normal range, so he switched to immunotherapy. Unfortunately, things quickly took a turn. "I lost about 12 pounds in a week. And my numbers went sky high, much higher than they were when I was first diagnosed. So, the doctors have decided that I have to undergo chemo again and that's what I'm doing."
