Late “Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek’s daughter is celebrating the Easter holiday with a little humor. Nicky Trebek shared a hilarious photo on Instagram.
Trebek shared with her followers how the Easter Bunny really gets around. But it’s definitely not by hopping. The photo showed a snow-white bunny performing a wheelie on a motorcycle. The image is hilarious but also awesome at the same time. For instance, how often do you get to see an Easter Bunny out on a joyride? Trebek is spreading a bit of good cheer for her fanbase as a result.
This Easter is perhaps a little difficult for Nicky Trebek. It’s the first Easter she is spending without her father. The late Alex Trebek passed away last November after a battle with pancreatic cancer. The two were closed and even worked on “Jeopardy!” together for a time. Nicky is the adopted daughter of Trebek and his first wife Elaine Callei. The late-game show host also had two children with his second wife Jean Currivan.
Nicky Trebek Reflects on Her Late Father
Since Alex Trebek’s death, his daughter confessed that it has been difficult to watch the show. There’s too many memories of her father. Trebek acted as host for 37 seasons, starting in 1984. But she’s worked to honor Trebek’s memory in other ways. For one, Nicky Trebek has become passionate about promoting both cancer research and also awareness. She hopes to save people from the disease that claimed her father.
“He brought much-needed #awareness to this terrible disease and provided #hope to so many struggling. I’m beyond proud of him for his courage and integrity throughout his illness So I’m continuing what he started and will fight for everyone affected by pancreatic cancer,” Nancy Trebek wrote in an Instagram post.
For one, Trebek has started a group called “Team Alex” to honor her father. That team promoted a pancreatic cancer awareness fundraiser called Purple Stride. The annual event was held virtually this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network hosted the event to raise funds.
“I just want to honor his fight,” Nicky Trebek said. “I feel that Purple Stride is a way to show how much integrity he had, throughout the whole thing.”
Nicky Trebek continues to keep the “Jeopardy!” host’s memory alive by helping others in Alex Trebek’s memory.
