Those are amusing. It will probably be some other game show host who replaces him. If they really want to get the young crowd watching they should pick Chris Hardwick. He does Talking Dead and various shows like that and did host a few game shows. He married a Hearst-- Lydia. Chris Hardwick - Wikipedia

Your choices to me would be better than Coates. See here;

Laura Coates’ Wiki: Husband, Education & More Facts!

A LITTLE too political for me.

Alex Trebek was not very personable according to a person who was on the show. And he IS very bright and very much could win Jeopardy himself. He didn't have any colorful background that I knew about and that was good. He will be hard to replace. He was in charge for sure. AND very picky about the exact right answer.

Me neither but my parents and their siblings were into it. Unfortunately they all passed away years ago.

I just think that the contestants have monopolized "weirdness". Time to give the host a shot.

It isn't supposed to be based on looks.

Or crustaceans.

My daughter was a contestant in 2006 when she was a new mom and her husband was in med school. She was the returning champion and won 31K. She enjoyed the experience and has an autographed photo with Alex.

I remember the days when all you won was a case of Rice-A-Roni, the San Francisco treat.

The untold truth of Jeopardy!

Some inside information about Jeopardy.

I tried the online test but could not even get those buttons right.
