Jeopardy! champion thanks Alex Trebek for helping him learn English

“Here’s a true story, man,” Thakur told Trebek. “I learned English because of you. My grandfather, who raised me… I used to sit on his lap and watch you every day. So, it’s a pretty special moment for me, man. Thank you very much.”
“That was a great gift you gave Alex,” a Jeopardy! fan wrote in reply to the video. “It was all I could give to someone who also [gave] me so much,” Thakur wrote back.
The long-running quiz show returned to production in recent months after a long break due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “On a personal level, I’m excited because it gets me out of the house,” Trebek said at the time. “It gives me something to do on a regular basis, and I was missing that.”
