“Jeopardy!” has introduced 4 new visitor hosts: Katie Couric, Aaron Rodgers, Bill Whitaker and Mayim Bialik.
The group follows present visitor host Ken Jennings, who has been the primary to fill in after the demise of Alex Trebek, the show’s host of 36 years.
A journalist and New York Times best-selling creator, Couric is ready to grow to be the first-ever feminine host of the show. Green Bay Packers quarterback Rodgers — who revealed his new gig just a little too early on Tuesday — gained an episode of “Celebrity Jeopardy!” in 2015. Whitaker, a “60 Minutes” correspondent, may also have a visitor host spot, in addition to “Call Me Kat” actor and neuroscientist Bialik.
To mark every visitor host’s look, a donation can be made to a charity of their alternative equal to the cumulative winnings of that week’s contestants.
“Alex was a legend, revered by all of us,” mentioned “Jeopardy!” govt producer Mike Richards. “I need to thank our visitor hosts, who is not going to solely assist all of us have fun his nice legacy, but in addition convey their very own contact to the show.”
Jennings kicked off his tenure on Jan. 11. During the start of the show, Jennings paid tribute to Trebek, emphasizing that nobody can substitute the show’s longtime host.
“Like all ‘Jeopardy!’ followers, I miss Alex very a lot, and I thank him for every thing he did for all of us,” Jennings mentioned. “Let’s be completely clear: nobody will ever substitute the nice Alex Trebek. But we are able to honor him by enjoying the sport he beloved.”
