He claims that he can answer 70-80% of all of the questions.

Yeah right.

I would hope I could answer 100% with the answers in front of me. :)

1/5. In an interview, he reads all of the questions beforehand to see how many he can answer. That's where the 70-80% comes from.

Ken Jennings debuts as host of ‘Jeopardy!’

https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment...-replace-the-great-alex-trebek-040553870.html

Ken Jennings made his debut as guest host on Jeopardy!, Monday. Jennings is the winningest player in the show’s history, and recently won the “Greatest of All Time” tournament. So it made sense when production named him guest host after Trebek’s death last November. Jennings opened the show with a touching tribute to the former host.

“Sharing this stage with Alex Trebek was one of the greatest honors of my life,” Jennings said. “Not many things in life are perfect, but Alex did this job pretty much perfectly for more than 36 years, and it was even better up close. We were dazzled by his intelligence, charm and grace.”

“Like all Jeopardy! fans, I miss Alex very much and I thank him for everything he did for all of us,” he continued. “Let’s be totally clear: No one will ever replace the great Alex Trebek. But we can honor him by playing the game he loved.”

Jennings has appeared as a contestant and champion on the game show over 100 times and his familiarity with the show clearly helped him in his debut. Fans also welcomed the familiar face, as the overall reaction to his performance was very positive.

Ken never seemed comfortable as the host. I'd be all for LeVar Burton taking over. Not a huge fan of all of these guest hosts. Personally, I wish they had realized they'd need a replacement someday - because of retirement or passing - and selected a permanent host to carry on after Art Fleming and Alex Trebek.

LeVar Burton Shares Petition To Become the Next 'Jeopardy!' Host

https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/levar-burton-shares-petition-become-182920089.html

The internet can be a grim place but it can also be a place for people to come together for a good cause, like demanding that LeVar Burton be the next guest host on Jeopardy!. An online petition requesting the beloved actor to get a shot at the guest host spot was even retweeted by Burton himself, indicating that he would be more than willing to take on the role if it is offered to him.

“Leaving this here in the event that the powers that be are listening,” Burton tweeted with a link to the petition, which has received over 137,000 online signatures so far.

The petition notes that Burton has plenty of experience with hosting, as he was the host of Reading Rainbow for more than two decades. It also noted that he “has inspired and shaped the minds of several generations of trivia-loving nerds.”

“This petition is to show Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc. and producers Mike Richards and Harry Friedman just how much love the public has for Burton, and how much we’d all love to see him as the next host of Jeopardy!,” The petition reads.

Burton’s tweet received massive support from fans, with more than 26,000 likes and nearly 7,000 retweets in less than 24 hours. One fan said that Burton would be “such a joy” as the host and another commented that he would be “such a natural.”

I thought Aaron Rodgers did a good job. He is a big fan of the show and I would not mind if he became the permanent host.

He needs to be out as Executive Producer as well.

I have a friend that was a three time winner on the show - apparently Richards ran off most of the long time staffers and pissed off the former winners community.

Most don't want anything to do with the show anymore until he is completely gone.

Is Mayim Bialik's dubious science going to be 'Jeopardy!'s' next big headache?​
