Re: Jeopardy. Best guest host so far

@janey2 I had stated in a previous post that not every guest host wants the job of hosting jeopardy.  They are simply filling in as a guest host.  The only two that I had read that actually want the hosting gig is Ken Jennings and Aaron Rodgers. I haven't read where any of the others want it permanently.

Whoever was the guest host tonight, 5/6, is the best guest host thy have had so far. I recognize him but I don't know his name. He has just the right Je ne sais quoi for the job.


@Mindy D   That's Bill Whittaker from 60 Minutes.  Funny - but I'm not fond of him on Jeopardy... I don't know why Anderson Cooper rated lowest... I really liked him.... I don't think he was the best, but I certainly wouldn't call him the worst, so far.... I also liked Ken Jennings, but Bill Whittaker, so far, has no personality for this show.... He's a news reporter and great on 60 Minutes..... JMO

Wow, I find that surprising.  I thought AC was quite good.

Anderson Cooper was not good, neither was Katie Couric!  I think Aaron Rodgers was the best, but I don't believe he is quite ready to give up football, so I am not sure if he could handle two stressful jobs!!  

 

Ken Jennings was Trebek's pick, so I sort of feel like he might get the job.  Anyone but Cooper and Couric!  My humble opinion.  I am a Jeopardy fan of 29 years.  I doubt if I have missed 5 episodes in the 29 years!   Miss Alex!!


@suzieQ4me  .... I could swear  that I heard/read that Ken Jennings got the job(?)

Re: Jeopardy. Best guest host so far

I could barely get thru two shows with Couric and stopped watching totally.  I taped them all though.

 

Curiosity got me and we watched Aaron Rodgers and I actually liked him.

 

I liked Richards the most, then Rodgers.  If Jennings got the job, I'd watch, but he's so b-o-r-i-n-g.

 

No one else though.  DH wouldn't care, he can always find something else on TV to watch.  lol

I would like to see a Ben Bailey (Cash Cab) have an opportunity to host.

I think Jennings did the best out of all the guest hosts so far.  Whitaker was ok but didn't make me want to watch the show.

Re: Jeopardy. Best guest host so far

THey will try out others in the future.  I'm waiting for Buzzy Fowler as I suspect he will be the best.  He's a former champion.

Aaron Rodgers - hope he gets the job!
