Michael Strahan speaks with the Trebeks
Thursday, January 2, 2020
8pm|7pm Central on ABC
It was such a pleasure to meet Micheal Strahan and the 20/20 production team when they visited our home in December. It was really busy when the crew first showed up. I was out on my walk up Fryman Canyon and I returned to trucks in the driveway, lights in the living room and some of the furniture moved. Alex was in makeup, so I started to get ready. Michael came a little later and introduced himself. I am always so impressed by the kindness and openess of interviewers… and Michael was truly lovely. He and Alex got along famously and started the interview.
During this time, I’m touched by the tremendous outpouring of affection for my husband by his fans. We have received many momentos from well-wishers – baked goods, blankets, vitamins, holy water, CBD creams, letters, chocolates, prayer flags from Tibet, an oar from a rowing team, signed sports jerseys – a lot of thoughtful gifts.
As I watch Alex during interviews, I’m in awe of how easy he makes receiving all this attention look. I know he is so emotionally connected to all the people who are supporting him and yet he is so calm and collected throughout his healing journey.
what you see is what you get.”
When asked what it is like to be married to Alex Trebek- the answer I give is what most wives would say, “He’s not the game show host at home (Ok… maybe most wives wouldn’t say that) but Alex is just my husband and I love him”. He’s both extra-ordinary and ordinary all at once. He wears jeans and T-shirts and is most comfortable puttering around the house – fixing everything from broken sprinklers to the tiles on the roof. I do have to say that he is quite ingenious when it comes to repairs of any sort. It’s amazing to me how he can come up with solutions for household problems.
“Alex is very supportive of what I and our children do.”
Alex encourages the work I do on my website – insidewink.com. He acknowledges the good intention and meaningfulness of its mission and I think he is proud of me.
I hope you get a chance to tune into 20/20 on ABC on Thursday 1/2/2020 at 8pm/7pm central and I hope that you are having a safe and cozy beginning to your new year.

Happy New Year to you
Happy New Year to you Mr and Mrs Trebek and son and daughter, I am sending love and prayers to all of you and I pray that Alex will get through this and beat this battle. We love you Alex. There isn’t a day go by weekday that we don’t watch Jeopardy, and always thinking of you ????????????????
I’m a retired Nurse. I read that Alex says when he is in pain he get edgy and says he feel bad when it takes it out on u. I was attacked on the job in1999 and ended up with a Close head injury which caused it to Uniate a genetic disease similar to ALS it’s called Charcot Marie Tooth disease. It causes numbness in ur arms and legs and causes the burning sensation in ur hands and feet similar to peripheral Neuropathy. The reason I went into this is,I use cbd tinsure(oil) to relieve my pain if Alex is not using it for his pain management, it’s a really good way to relieve pain. It also has a calming effect but does not make u sleepy or groggy
Sorry I missed the interview. Praying for Alex and his family. He has been enjoyed by me since he first came on Jeopardy. I think I am smarted because of Jeopardy, and Alex makes watching it a pleasure. I have been watching since Art Fleming was the host.
Hoping Alex beats this terrible cancer and can stay on as long as he wants to. Best TV Game Show Host— Who is Alex Trebek?
