Lots of people are millionaires, but as with men living past the age of 90 they are doing much better than average. I'm talking averages here - dying at 78 is 2 years better than average. We had a friend get diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in her late 40s and she was gone in a month, that was very sad and unexpected.

My dad died at 78, but he had a heart attack and died on his kitchen floor. I'll take fall-down-dead-in-a-minute for $200, Alex.

But seriously, I'm a long-time Jeopardy fan, and I hope he has some quality of life ahead, however long it may be.
Just trying to soft pedal my correction with that preface .

One of my relatives died a few years ago at age 100. He was a Physician, and still had his license and was doing consulting into his late 90s. Another relative ran his business until he sold it (because he loved running it...not because he needed the money), and he was about 90 when he sold it. One of my great grandmothers, who took great care of herself, lived to be 104. She outlived her own son, who took horrible care of himself, by half a century.

Approximately 3 months, based on info I can find, though that can vary depending on tournaments and summer reruns.

Thanks! Just wondering how much longer he'll be able to host, has always seemed the perfect man for the job. I did work with a man once who'd put pancreatic cancer into complete remission so there is hope.

Alex Trebek is 78 not 80.

I looked up Art Fleming, the previous host of Jeopardy. Turns out he passed from Pancreatic Cancer.

Never forget how Trebek humiliated and bullied teenaged contestants.


I think he's a snot.

Another tidbit of Jeopardy info....all three of the Jeopardy announcers over the last 55 years have ended up living to age 92 or beyond.
