A few months later, in May, Alex Trebek revealed that his tumors had shrunk by more than 50 percent.

The late “Jeopardy!” host also attended his daughter’s open houses to see if there were hidden costs Emily might have missed. His daughter credited him for her success as a realtor in her interview, stating:

“I don’t have words to express how much it means to me that he helped.”
