35. Alex Trebek

That screams PR and organised call ahead to the press. You wouldn't notice him just wearing a mask, but if they called paps and said "we'll be wearing bedazzled hats", then they would get the right person.

I'll say it again:  he looks alright, all things considered.  I wouldn't doubt that things could deteriorate quickly given his affliction, but for now, he continues to defy the odds.

"I'm doing well. I've been continuing my treatment and it's been paying off, though it does fatigue me a great deal," Trebek said. "My numbers are good. I'm feeling great."

Old shows are going to start to air soon.

That treatment that he’s on. It’s apparently an experimental treatment, and we know how those usually go...

No worse than no treatment I'd imagine. If it gives him a couple of extra months why not try it......

Clarifies a statement he made regarding his treatment. When he said he would stop treatment, he meant his "experimental" treatment, not treatment all together - he would go back to chemotherapy if it doesn't work. 

I'll go for "Backtracking Quickly" for $600.....

I still think he can make it 5+ more months to see 2021, but things can deteriorate rather quickly.  I hope he can return to host Jeopardy for one more run of tapings before he falls too ill.

This short clip from ET looks at his marital life and his life as a father. It mentions that his son has left New York to be with his father during the COVID as he recognizes this is "the last go-round" and to spend as much quality time with him before there is no time left to spend.

I’m gonna call it now: If he’s still around by next year, 2020 is gonna be a rough year for game show hosts. I don’t know why I think that, I just do

Seems like your prediction is true only, er, Alex Trebek hasn’t died yet...

That article is from December 2019...

 

It doesn't take a lot of brainpower to check these things before posting.

I’m getting concerned—I haven’t seen him take out the trash recently.
