I hope he can hold out against it but I'm not having high hopes. This really sucks :(

I was thinking about Trebek recently when Sean Connery passed, after a friend brought up the old SNL Celebrity Jeopardy sketches. Kind of wild they passed so close to each other so many years later.

I know they had other hosts before him but I honestly can’t imagine anyone else hosting Jeopardy! besides him.

I don’t think any of us will really be able to adjust to Anderson Cooper or whoever replaces him as host.

It's gonna be weird. I got used to Drew Carey on Price Is Right, but they need to find someone fairly innocous and inoffensive like Drew to host Jeopardy. Anderson Cooper would be good tbh. He does come off like a professional at least which Jeopardy needs. You can't just throw Larry The Cable Guy or some former SNL cast member (Sorry Leslie) to host.

Alex has always been my favorite game show host by far. He carried himself so much classier than the rest and he was very funny when he wanted to be. Jeopardy definitely won't be the same and it will take years for me to adjust to not seeing Trebek do his thing.

RIP

RIP Trebek.

I got really into jeopardy last year and they have some contestants that would be good fits to take over as host.

I feel like Ken Jennings has been low key angling to be Alex's replacement the last 10 or so years (or however long he's been relevant). To me, that would make the most sense. Also when I heard Alex died, I thought "You're going to be initiating discussion about his replacement before his body's even cold on TRTSM."

Yeah, I can absolutely see it being Ken Jennings, or for entertainment purposes, James Houlzhauer.

I saw Joe Rogan brought up as longshot replacement suggestion.

I feel like, as a society, we will have failed if the guy who barely fact checks Alex Jones becomes the next host of Jeopardy!

That would mean he's back from being lost at sea with Troy Barnes, which means we may get that movie.

RIP Alex
