Amid his battle with cancer, Jeopardy host Alex Trebek got very emotional in Monday’s episode after receiving a heartwarming message from a contestant.

Dhruv Gaur, who had been eliminated from winning, wrote “We heart you, Alex.” He had wagered $1,995 of his $2,000 in prize money, leaving with him just $5 thanks to his message to the show’s 36-year host.

Quickly #WeLoveYouAlex was trending on Twitter and messages of support poured in for Trebek.
