Alex Trebek obviously has some trouble revisiting the reign of "Jeopardy!" However, when he undergoes a second round of chemotherapy for pancreatic cancer, he has full vigor and there is no indication that Alex's throwing the towel show can be numbered. He said that chemotherapy had wounds in the mouth, making it difficult to talk. Alex has repeatedly said that if his ability to moderate the show wears off, he will resign, but we are told that this is NOT on the horizon.
"hazard" Production sources tell us that the show was recorded 2.5 months in advance and that from now on it has shows until December. So, if Alex is under the weather and misses a few shots, the show will not be sent to freefall.
Fact is … Alex will be recording twice this week, maintaining his perfect attendance record – he has no & # 39; I have not taped in 35 years.
Regarding his comments on the oral ulcers that make speaking difficult, our production sources tell us that Alex is overly critical of his performance on the show, and minor missteps are common on other shows bothering him. But if he speaks wrongly or has problems with a sentence, simply re-shooting the line is enough.
As we reported, Alex's numbers went in the wrong direction and he had to start again with chemotherapy for his stage 4 cancer but there are no outward signs that he is unable or unwilling to do this job.
