Dhruv Gaur’s answer on “Jeopardy!” brought host Alex Trebek to tears Monday.

During the “Final Jeopardy” round, Trebek asked contestants for their answers. When he got to Gaur, the host paused, according to CNN affiliate WBAL-TV

“We love you Alex!” Gaur wrote on his answer, worth $1,995. In place of the word love, Gaur wrote a heart.

“That’s very kind of you, thank you,” Trebek said, choking up. The “wrong” answer cost left Gaur with $5.
