Exclusive new photographs show the 79-year-old Jeopardy! host taking out trash and recyclables on Jan. 22 in Los Angeles.
The beloved gameshow star wore blue jeans, a sweatshirt and a baseball cap while performing the chores.
As Radar previously reported, Trebek broke the sad news last March that he has stage IV pancreatic cancer.
He admitted he was dealing with depression and “excruciating pain.”
“When it happened early on I was down on myself,” the host told Good Morning America. “I didn’t realize how fallible each of us is in his or her own way. I don’t even bother to explain it anymore, I just experience it. I know it’s a part of who I am and I just keep going.”
“I realize that there is an end in sight for me, just as there is for everyone else…. the thought of passing on doesn’t frighten me, it doesn’t,” he added.

End of an Era
Trebek recently revealed he’s preparing for the time when he will no longer be able to host Jeopardy!, the show he has starred on since 1984.
“I’ve kind of, in my mind, rehearsed it already, and what I would do on that day is tell the director, ‘Time the show down to leave me 30 seconds at the end. That’s all I want,'” he said. “And I will say my goodbyes and I will tell people: ‘Don’t ask me who’s going to replace me because I have no say whatsoever.'”
Trebek revealed that his final words to fans would be: “And until we meet again, God bless you and goodbye.’”
Multiple names, including Ken Jennings and Vanna White, have come up as ABC searches for a possible replacement for Trebek. “I’m sure that if you give them the same love and attention and respect that you have shown me … then they will be a success and the show will continue being a success,” he has said of whoever takes over when he’s gone.
In the meantime, Trebek is putting on a brave face and continuing to live life as normally as possible.
Counting His Blessings
“As long as I can walk out and greet the audience and the contestants and run the game I’m happy,” he has said.
