The next host of Jeopardy is?

Ken Jennings finishes his run as an interim host on Jeopardy tonight and then they will go to a number guest hosts that include Green Bay Packer QB, Aaron Rodgers. 

Personally, I really came to enjoy Jennings. He is affable, knowledgeable and a very capable full time host. I hope they decide on him to be permanent. 

In the meantime it is going to be a bit of a revolving door for interim hosts, that include, actors/actresses, journalists, and pro football players.

Here is the link to the read.

Who would you like to see? Does Jennings get your nod? 

Share away!

If they were to choose a Canadian for the gig, who do you think would be a good candidate?

I think that Anderson Cooper would make a good host, but I don't want that to take away from his storm chasing on CNN.

One of the planned guest hosts is Dr. Oz.

This has been incredibly controversial among fans in various Jeopardy forums and on social media.

Ian Hanomansing or Adrienne Arsenault.

Re: The next host of Jeopardy is?

Regarding Ken Jennings as host...I am in total agreement that he should be made permanent host.  I had some apprehensions before he started but he's been a natural following in Alex's footsteps making the show/contestants the centre of attention rather than himself.  I expect he will continue to improve.

Re: The next host of Jeopardy is?

With the experience of "The Chase" and "Masterminds", Brooke Burns would be my choice. Likeable, smart, eloquent, would be a good choice instead of argument of "another old white man".

Second Choice, none other than Geordi Le Forge.

Ken Jennings comes off unlikable in Mastermind, and has history with Twitter.
 


You ever worry that no one is listening?

Re: The next host of Jeopardy is?

I rather enjoy Ken Jennings as host.  He got over the initial jitters knowing he was following in some mighty big footsteps rather quickly and settled into the role rather comfortably.  Good on him.  If they make him permanent, it will be a wise choice.

As for the other hosts, Dr. Oz might be a dark horse to do better than most expect.  He's already got some hosting chops and if he plays it straight, he might surprise.

I'm looking forward to seeing how Mayim Bialik does.  She certainly has the educational background.

I wish LeVar Burton got a crack at it.  He had long expressed an interest in hosting.

Re: The next host of Jeopardy is?

I recently remembered a fun fact about radio and Jeopardy with a Toronto twist.

Two current morning show hosts have appeared on the show; John Moore and Michael Stafford were both contestants on the show.  Only "Staff", as he is sometimes known, made it to the finals. 

If I remember correctly, Stafford lost in spectacular fashion thinking after 60 years, an elephant would have worn down feet because of their weight.

If I understand correctly, Mme.Payette will be hosting the new Canadian Game Show...  Temper Tantrum, and the french version...  Crise de Colere

Seems obvious, Frank D'Angelo.  He could sing the show in and out of breaks as well.


Madness takes its toll.  Please have exact change.
