The Post adds the contestant who wrote the answer, Dhruv Gaur, later tweeted, “For context, Alex had just shared with us that he was reentering treatment for pancreatic cancer. We were all hurting for him so badly. When Final Jeopardy came up, I could’ve tried to puzzle it together, but really, just kept thinking about Alex, and thought he should know.”
“We love you Alex” then began trending on Twitter.
