During Monday’s “Tournament Of Champions” edition of “Jeopardy,” Dhruv Gaur made waves with his Final Jeopardy answer.

Rather than writing the correct answer, Gaur showed his support for host Alex Trebek by writing “We [Love] You, Alex.” Gaur’s gesture made for an emotional moment that has since gone viral.

As this year’s tournament comes to an end, Gaur pays a visit to “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

The contestant chats during Thursday’s edition of the daytime talk show. He also discusses a pledge to support research into pancreatic cancer, the affliction Trebek is battling.

Ellen shows her support by donating $25,000 to the Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research. She also gifts Daur with a TCL Roku TV to watch the remainder of the tournament.

The episode will air this afternoon, but video highlights and photos are already available:
