One of the contestants on Monday night's new episode of Jeopardy! is going viral after a split-second decision he made to show host Alex Trebek some love and support during his ongoing battle with pancreatic cancer.

Contestant Dhruv Gaur didn't have the correct answer for his Final Jeopardy question, so wrote this in its place: "What is, We ❤️You, Alex!". When Trebek read the message, he began to choke up at the sweet message.

"That's very kind of you".

Trebek went public with his battle against stage four pancreatic cancer, which has only a 9 percent survival rate for five years.

"I'm just very grateful I got the opportunity to say what I know everyone was thinking", Gaur tweeted.

All of Twitter is crying over our favorite game show host, Jeopardy!'s Alex Trebek, and that's just fine.

Emma Boettcher earned her way into the finals of the Tournament of Champions. "Alex is a legend and such a professional", wrote one viewer.

Last week, other Jeopardy contestants announced they are organizing a charitable play-along to help raise money for pancreatic cancer research. "We were all hurting for him so badly", he wrote.

In a series of tweets, Gaur explained his decision.

The moment inspired the Twitter hashtag "WeLoveYouAlex", in which many expressed how Gaur's message and Trebek himself touched their hearts.

Trebek said his goals for the summer were to get his strength and hair back but his progress on both fronts was dismal. Now my 8 and 9 yr old watch you with my husband and I. So much love and respect for you.
