JEOPARDY host Alex Trebek was spotted taking out the trash at his Los Angeles mansion.
The much-loved host – who is battling pancreatic cancer while he and his wife shelter at home from the deadly coronavirus pandemic – looked healthy and strong as he set about the chore on Wednesday.
The 79-year-old wore a blue and yellow hat over what appeared to be thinner hair than usual.
He kept it casual in a grey sweatshirt, blue jeans and black shoes, and made sure not to lose his eyeglasses as he had them hanging from a string around his neck.
Trebek and his wife Jean, 55, have been self-isolating at their Studio City mansion during the lockdown in California.
In an essay posted online last week, Jean – who Trebek recently described as his “soul mate” – said that she views the situation as a “much needed break”.
She wrote: “Although we are physically being confined to a limited amount of external outings and gatherings, we also have the great opportunity to truly be or invest in ourselves at a deeper level.”
New aerial pictures of the couple’s stunning home in celeb hotspot Fryman Canyon show that it has many soothing features to make staying home more bearable.
The property has manicured shrubs, walkways with water features, a swinging chair surrounded by fruit trees and an outdoor kitchen near the pool.
Trebek has lived there since picking up the 10,000-square foot, six-bedroom home for $1.5 million in 1990.
The father-of-two – who announced he had been diagnosed with deadly stage 4 pancreatic cancer in March last year – gave fans an update on his health as he passed the one-year survival mark last month.
Only 18% of patients diagnosed with the killer disease get past the milestone – and Trebek admitted that the suffering caused by chemotherapy had made him consider giving up.
He said in a video posted on social media: “There were moments of great pain.
“Moments when certain bodily functions no longer functioned and some massive attacks of great depression that made me wonder if it was really worth fighting on.”
“But I brushed that aside very quickly, because that would have been a massive betrayal,” he added.
Jeopardy! suspended production last month over concerns about the health of contestants, staff and crew due to the risks of the host catching Covid-19.
It came after the show had previously decided not to tape in front of a live audience.
