Default Alex Trebek: RIP

They really don't. His ability to be an authority figure and friendly at the same time was admirable and rare.

Having said that, who do you think will be the next host of Jeopardy?
My guess is Ken Jennings.

My guess is also Ken Jennings. Alex made a remark a couple of weeks ago when Ken was giving a video category clues...he said "I feel like someone is looking over my shoulder". He said it in a nice way, but I think it was a way for him to say that Ken would be taking over. I will miss Alex a lot. I used to watch the original Jeopardy with Art Flemming and didn't think I would like Alex as much, but he proved me wrong. R.I.P. Alex, and thanks for many years of entertainment and enjoyment. My wife and I will miss you!

R.I.P. to Alex Trebek. Glad he got to see another Lakers chip before he passed.
