Jeopardy!'s Alex Trebek Stops by Home Depot in Bedazzled Hard Hat with Wife and Son

“Sudden massive attacks of great depressions that made me wonder if it was really worth fighting on,” he said in the video. “But I brushed that aside quickly, because that would have been a massive betrayal — a betrayal of my wife and soulmate Jean, who has helped me survive. A betrayal of other cancer patients who have looked to me as an inspiration, and a cheerleader of sorts of the value of living and hope.”

Alex has been open and candid about his health journey and revealed in April that he is set to publish an "inspiring" memoir titled The Answer Is…: Reflections on My Life, which will be released by Simon & Schuster on July 21.

He had been resisting requests that he write a memoir for decades. But after he announced his diagnosis in March 2019, Alex was so moved by the letters and words of support he received that he decided to share his story.

“I want people to know a little more about the person they have been cheering on for the past year,” Alex writes in his book, according to the publisher.

In The Answer Is…: Reflections on My Life, Alex shares personal anecdotes and reveals his thoughts on topics like marriage, fatherhood and spirituality. Inspired by the show that Alex has hosted for more than 30 years, each chapter title takes the form of a question. He answers frequently-asked questions by Jeopardy! fans, like why he shaved his mustache and what he thinks about Will Ferrell’s Saturday Night Live impersonation. He also includes dozens of previously unpublished photos.

“Today, when there is so much uncertainty and turmoil in the world, Alex Trebek is a beacon of stability and positivity,” said Sean Manning, executive editor at Simon & Schuster, in a statement. “This wise, charming and inspiring book is further evidence why he has long been considered one of the most beloved and respected figures in entertainment.”
