Jeopardy host Alex Trebec got choked up during an emotional, heartfelt moment during Final Jeopardy last night.

Contestant Dhurv Gaur was lingering in 3rd place during the Tournament of Champions game and sat at $2,000 going into Final Jeopardy when he was faced with this question:

In the title of a groundbreaking 1890 expose of poverty in New York City slums, these 3 words follow “How the”

Gaur wagered $1,995 on the question and responded with “We Love you, Alex!”

Trebec was clearly moved by the gesture and got a little choked up…

Didn’t we all? Who’s chopping onions up in here?!
