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.
If you read Tal's link to the "Untold Truthruth behind " in post #19, you'll see why. It has to do with the cheating scancal in the '50s and the FCC wanting to make sure there was no untoward contact between the host and the contestants.

Some inside information about Jeopardy.

I tried the online test but could not even get those buttons right.
The thing I have never liked about the show is how cheap/chintzy they are with the prize. Whereas Wheel of Fortune gives away thousands of dollars (although a lot of it is provided by sponsors, but there is cash, and everyone gets to take home what they win), Jeopardy is very miserly with their awards despite the fact they are making money hand over fist. The least they could do is let contestants take home the amount they gained during the contest.

Jeopardy gives the contestants the answers, avoids cheating scandals on Dotto, $64000 question, etc.
Was better with the late Art Fleming, complicated, many easy answers now.

Trebek sounds smart because he has the questions in front of him.

Need a dignified host, not the jokesters mentioned. Need someone like Sheldon Cooper.
