    Alex is canadian. It's nice to see a Canadian acting kind. Canadians are the least kind people i know. They are 'outwardly polite' but in term of being generous, kind and caring i would say its a cultural thing. canadians are the only ones who think they are kind.

    What a legend.
    1995 was the year Art Fleming passed due to the same cancer and paid tribute to him.
    Shown his love of the show though and Alec.
    Also the first person ive ever seen smile directly at the camera and shake it off.

      Jared Singleton because money isn’t everything. He didn’t care. He cared about sending a thoughtful message to Alex.

    Would he have wrote it if he were in the lead?

    • Ambur Price
      Ambur Price 24 days ago

      I’m pretty sure he wrote it because he didn’t know the answer. So he just decided to write something nice.

    I love Alex so much. He is a tremendously wonderful man who's battling the most aggressive cancer ever known. He's done so much for America through his wisdom and sense of humor that has made America happy for the last 36 years.
    I truly hope he will have quality of life and blessings of hope until the end. He must know he will reach his reward one day.
    And yes, Alex, we do love you.

      I haven’t seen jeopardy in a while, but I think they make the wagers before they see the question.
