Nobody can replace Alex Trebek as the Host of Jeopardy, but someone will eventually succeed him as the host of Jeopardy. I am certain that by now the producers of the show have privately had discussions. Will the next host be "grandfatherly" as Alex was, a younger man, or a woman. There is an online petition to appoint Levar Burton as the host. Some people think Ken Jennings should be the new host. I proposed Brooke Burns as she has experience as the host of two quiz shows that have featured Ken Jennings and James Holzhauer.
Jeopardy shows with Alex as host were pre-recorded until October 29 and will air until Christmas Day. There are options for the producers:
- Air reruns until a permanent host is appointed
- Make someone an interim host until a permanent successor is found
- Give applicants trial runs as host as part of their interview
- Appoint a permanent host immediately
