Jeopardy! Host No Longer Listed For TCM Cruise

October 2, 2019

Ailing Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek appears to have had to scrub his scheduled October cruise to Bermuda after suffering a setback in his battle against pancreatic cancer and resuming chemotherapy.

The game show host had originally been among the star-studded line-up of guests due to sail to the island aboard the Disney Magic for the Turner Classic Movies October 22-27 25th anniversary cruise.

But his name and photo were quietly removed from the cruise’s website earlier this week.

Alex Trebek Bermuda Sept 2019

Mr. Trebek, a lifelong fan of the Golden Age Hollywood films broadcast by TCM and an occasional host on that cable channel, had been due to lead movie trivia competitions aboard the Disney Magic during the sold-out cruise.

He had previously hosted movie contests and screenings on TCM cruises from 2012 to 2016.

The Canadian-born TV personality announced in March he had been diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer.

In a May update he said he was responding exceptionally well to chemotherapy and would undergo several more rounds of treatment in hopes of pushing the cancer into full remission.

Alex Trebek announces he will be resuming chemotherapy on Jeopardy’s! September 17 episode.

He finished these treatments in time to resume taping Jeopardy! in August.

But last month he told the show’s viewers his belief that he was done with chemotherapy was premature and “overoptimistic”, and that sessions would resume.

Along with people including legendary film, TV and Broadway actress Cicely Tyson, Mr. Trebek was one of the TCM Bermuda cruise’s marquee-name guests.

Additional guests are expected to be announced for the cruise for classic movie fans before the Disney Magic sets sail for Bermuda.

    You know I grew up watching Alex trebek and you know my thoughts and prayers go out to him. But if he ever retires and resigns from Jeopardy they just need to end the show right there and not do what they did like they did with the Price is Right and bringing a new host just because it will not be the same.
    Thank You

      I know what you mean. Bob Barker was amazing on the price is right. Drew Carrey is great and nothing against the guy but I never thought he was a good fit.
