Who will be the interim 'Jeopardy!' host?

November 23, 2020

The show must go on.

On Monday, “Jeopardy!” announced that it will resume production of the game show next week following the death of Alex Trebek.

Ken Jennings, the "Greatest of All Time" winner, will be the first in a series of interim guest hosts.

"We will resume production on 11/30 with a series of interim guest hosts from the Jeopardy! family – starting with Ken Jennings. Additional guest hosts to be announced," the show wrote on Twitter.

As the show searches for Trebek's successor, Jennings' name was thrown into the running.

Jennings recently took on the role of the show’s consulting producer and brand ambassador. He also holds the all-time records for most consecutive games won (74) and highest winnings in regular-season play ($2,520,700).

The beloved host, who hosted the game show since 1984, died on November 8 after battling stage 4 pancreatic cancer since March 2019. He was 80.

The final episode hosted by Trebek will air on Christmas Day.
