Alex Trebek sat down with Michael Strahan back in January and told Michael he had already planned and rehearsed his final goodbyes. He said he only needs 30 seconds at the end of the show. Alex said he will say his goodbyes, he will tell people don’t ask him who is replacing him. He said he will conclude with, but I’m sure if they give them the same love and attention and respect that you have shown me then they will be a success and the show will continue being a success. Who do you think can step in as Jeopardy host? Should they do guest host positions to finish out the season?
