Speculation about the Next Host of Jeopardy


An article by Randee Dawn lists the following contenders for the future host of Jeopardy:

  • Ken Jennings
  • Tom Bergeron
  • Alex Faust
  • LeVar Burton
  • Laura Coates
  • Anderson Cooper
  • Betty White
The article gives a short bio of each and the rationale of why each is a good candidate for the job.  Thus, it is not necessary to repeat it here.  Brooke Burns who is my favorite is not listed.  We know that Ken Jennings will be an interim host, but at this time it is not known who else will be given an audition.

Of the 7 listed above, I feel that Anderson Cooper is the best suited as he is scholarly and has appeared on the celebrity version of Jeopardy.  I predict that Ken Jennings will get the job permanently as he has always been popular with the show's audience.  He will just need some training in public speaking since he never hosted a TV show whereas the others are either actors, newscasters, or sportscasters.

Stay tuned.

Please feel free to answer the following survey.
