PEOPLE Alex Trebek

In a new commemorative edition, People celebrates the life and career of beloved Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek, who passed away in 2020 at the age of 80. The photo-filled issue chronicles his rise from modest beginnings in Sudbury, Ontario, to the loving home he built with wife Jean, to his brave and public battle with pancreatic cancer. We look back at the many other game shows he graced—you would have to be a real trivia fanatic to know them all—and offer a revealing look behind the scenes at Jeopardy! in an exclusive book excerpt. Plus: A remembrance written by Jeopardy! champ and guest host, Ken Jennings.
