Ken Jennings revealed a part of the “Jeopardy!” stage that left fans feeling emotional.
Jennings, 48, posted a video to Twitter of a one-of-a-kind Lego model of the show’s set, with everything from the audience members to the clue board.
The replica also features three contestants, as well as the hosting podium with none other than Alex Trebek standing behind it.
“This Lego model of the @Jeopardy set is one of my favorite artifacts on our stage,” Jennings wrote in his tweet. “Always nice to see Alex still hosting.”
Trebek died of pancreatic cancer in November 2020 at age 80.
Fans of the beloved game show were touched to see the legendary host behind the podium again, even if in Lego form.
“That really just brightened my day, that’s super cool,” one person wrote.
“We miss Alex but you’ve been doing a great job,” another said to Jennings.
“It’s the Lego Movie spinoff that *should* be made!” someone suggested.
Lego posted a video of the model back in 2017 and revealed that it used 125,000 bricks and took 100 hours to build.
Jennings recently returned to the hosting podium on March 10 after co-host Mayim Bialik finished hosting the “High School Reunion Tournament” special. His episodes will run through April 28 and after that, he likely won’t be back as host of the syndicated episodes until September.
However, Jennings will helm the prime-time series “Jeopardy! Masters,” which features six notable “Jeopardy!” champions competing over 10 hour-long episodes. A premiere date has not been announced.
After Trebek’s death, a series of guest hosts took turns rotating behind the host podium and producer Mike Richards was given the mantle.
Richards ultimately resigned shortly thereafter, in August 2021, after reports of past misogynistic comments surfaced. Bialik and Jennings split duties following Richards’ brief tenure and were officially named hosts in July 2022
