Alex Trebek, the host of Jeopardy!, is a revered icon globally. His game show has been making us all smarter for years.

However, Monday’s episode may have brought many fans to tears. It almost brought Trebek to tears too, as a matter of fact.

During the “Final Jeopardy” round, contestant Dhruv Gaur wrote, “We love you Alex!” using a heart instead of the word “love.” It triggered an emotional reaction from Trebek.

Before the show, Trebek announced that he would be re-entering treatment for pancreatic cancer.

Gaur’s “wrong” answer left him with $5 in his account. “That’s very kind of you, thank you,” said the Trebek, his voice cracking.

Gaur later took to Twitter to explain his reasoning.

The video of this kindhearted incident has garnered millions of views, with 63,000 likes and close to 13,000 retweets on Twitter.
