Of all the shows on television today, Jeopardy! is perhaps one of the most iconic! The famous trivia show has been around for generations and fans across the nation tune in nightly to watch contestants battle it out for points.
Alex Trebek, the famous host of the show, is one of the most iconic parts of the program! He has been hosting the program since 1984! Many people couldn't imagine watching if Alex wasn't asking the contestants questions.
However, Trebek has just opened up with some major news. He said there is a solid chance he will be retiring when his contract runs out in 2020.
"However, fans may not have to imagine that once Trebek's contract runs up in 2020. In a sit-down with TMZ's Harvey Levin, the formerly mustachioed host said there's only a '50/50' or 'a little less' chance that he'll go on to helm the competition after that," reported Today.
He then went on to discuss people he thinks should replace him! It is very strange to think of another host on the show!
""I mentioned to our producer, not so long ago, that the fellow (Alex Faust) that does play-by-play for the Los Angeles Kings — they should consider him,” the 78-year-old said.
He also mentioned a potential female host for the show.
"There is an attorney, Laura Coates,” he said. “She’s African-American and she appears on some of the cable news shows from time to time.”
