"Jeopardy!" host Alex Trebek got a little emotional during Monday's show.

Alex Trebek fought back tears after a contestant used his Final Jeopardy answer to deliver a sweet message to the host.

He then read Gaur's answer aloud: "What is: We love you Alex".

When Trebek noticed that Gaur gave up practically all of his remaining $2,000 on the inaccurate reply.

Trebek was no doubt touched by the gesture and is feeling the love as he battles cancer. It was this more unsettling turn of events that led to the contestant leave the message "What is We ❤️ You Alex!" after which Alex shortly paused to regain his momentary loss of composure.

It comes after 18-year-old Jeopardy! winner, Ari Gupta, donated $10,000 of his winning to an OR cancer research institute in honor of Trebek.

Gaur won $100,000 past year on "Jeopardy!".

The heartwarming minute took off on social media, as the hashtag "WeLoveYouAlex" begun to pattern on Twitter.
