Google offers fun tribute to Alex Trebek

The search engine's 'did you mean' suggestion when you Google the late quiz show host's name is so very 'Jeopardy!'

Google is paying homage to the late "Jeopardy!" host Alex Trebek.

If you google Trebek's name, the search engine responds with "Did you mean: WHO IS Alex Trebek?"

Trebek died on Nov. 8 at the age of 80 following a battle with pancreatic cancer.

"Jeopardy!" announced Nov. 23 that all-time champion Ken Jennings will serve as the first in a series of guest hosts as the show resumes production until a permanent replacement is named. The new episodes will air starting Jan. 11, 2021.
