LeVar Burton to Guest Host Jeopardy! during Hosting Try-Outs. Exciting news for Jeopardy! fans, the last group of guest hosts has been announced. The final guests hosts for season 37 include: Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, David Faber, Joe Buck, and LeVar Burton! There have been several campaigns online to get LeVar Burton to replace Alex Trebek as the Jeopardy! host and it seems the producers are willing to listen to fans.
Trebek, passed away in late 2020 at his home surrounded by friends and family. Alex Trebek had shared his diagnosis in a shocking clip on Jeopardy! in 2019, stating that he had Stage IV pancreatic cancer. Trebek hosted the iconic quiz show from 1984-2020. The last episodes filmed with Trebek as the host are set to run through the end of the year, but the long running quiz series will need a new host very soon to keep the series running.
The new hosting lineup was shared by the official Jeopardy! twitter:
A new host has yet to be determined for the series, but it seems the Jeopardy! production team is willing to see if Burton is ready for the role! Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for updates and all things entertainment!
