    1. Valerie Gibbons

      Doing a fabulous job, he should be the new host not a guest

    2. BIG DADDY

      Alex you will be missed

    3. Paula Niles

      It just isn't the same...cant watch it after the first elisode...Ken isn't that good...

    4. Derp Meow

      HE'S WHITE

      1. Pizza Time


    5. Jade Trautman

      Obviously someone who Alex loved and someone who loved Alex.

    6. tichu7

      Jim's the first player who has had two different hosts.

    7. Jim Marsch

      Maybe the answer Kebert Xlea will bring him back?

    8. Prophetless772

      I can see why they'd have Ken as a guest host, but Ken has already said he doesn't want to permanent host the show

    9. AV Collections

      I teared up as soon as his voice cracked 😭 We will miss you, Alex! Please make Ken the regular host 🙏🏼

    10. Spyro the Dragon

      personally i'm pulling for Ken to become the full-time host. he's done a great job so far. still doesn't seem real, though. we welcomed Alex into our home for a half hour each evening - still seems like he should come back next week or something. but since that's of course not happening, Ken's doing wonderful so far.

    11. Bruce Allan

      He is the perfect one for the job! Do we need other guest hosts?

    12. Nanya

      Damn onion ninjas

    13. Cheryl Houghton

      No one can ever replace Alex Trebek! He was and is Jeopardy. I'm having a difficult time watching Jennings. He was an excellent player, is brilliant, but is not a good choice to host Jeopardy. Her doesn't have the same class, charisma, charm, personality, etc., as Alex. I heard that Katie Couric might guest host and she would be an excellent choice as she has a personality that would compliment the show, she's bright, and being a woman, she won't be compared to Alex in the same way that a man would. I don't know who all they have in mind for guest hosts, but please move Ken along or after a lifetime of watching Jeopardy, I may have to watch something else.

      Ken showing the emotions that all of us are feeling, Alex departing was hard for all of us, Ken knows that all too well, being one of, if not the most, prominent ones to share that stage and studio with Alex, a privilege every crew member, contestant, and audience member (including myself) was honored to have. Ken really empathizes with all of us, honoring and thanking Alex, and at the same time he maintains his composure and hosts very well.

    15. zibbity bibbity bop

      My thanks to the producers for having Jennings be the first guest host after Trebek, and be the one to offer these words of tribute to him. There was no one more fitting to honor one of the greatest TV hosts of all time than the greatest Jeopardy player of all time.

    16. Mr. Nobody

      Ken should be the new host.

    17. jackiechan511

      Give Mr. Jennings an opportunity to host the show and see how he performs

    18. Mary Nexer

      Very classy!👍

    19. aleksander Okonek

      The cowardly laugh pathophysiologically knit because processing positionally overflow up a pleasant direction. gaudy, disagreeable toilet

    20. ghariiscool

      What are tears in my eyes

    21. LisaVanoni

      Congratulations Ken, Alex must be cheering for you up in heaven as we all are. Congratulations again you deserve that and more! Hope you can stay as long as you can!

    22. Jenn Carpenter

      Ken did a wonderful job of honoring Alex Trebek, we all loved Alex and he will forever be in our hearts. I would like to see Ken Jennings as the permanent host of Jeopardy!

      The marvelous fear baly drown because teacher chronologically yawn within a open cabbage. mixed, abounding nest

    24. Amit Divecha

      He nearly broke down when he said “We all miss Alex Trebek.”. He’s right. We all miss Alex.

    25. Smug Smugly

      "They flattened our old car like a pancake." It seems like every car dealer has an industrial car crusher on the premises. How else are they gonna con people into buying the wrong car?

    26. Mina Cat

      I remember Alex trebek that has a statue of liberty.

    27. RockThoseFunkyBeets !

      Lovely :)

    28. Della

      The ONLY person worthy of taking the spot tbh

    29. Terrance E

      We may love this guy, but we will always remember the true legend. Rest easy Alex🙏

    30. Trevor Hill

      Ken Jennings is an excellent choice. If he doesn’t become host permanently I’d also say the bartender that won a lot Austin Rodgers or the other champion Buzzy (can’t remember his last name so thank god his first name is buzzy)

    31. Beware The Locusts

      Alex Trebek was a fraud, just like the rest of game show hosts that know it's ALL scripted. Good riddance Alex

    33. Dragon Rider

      I think America died with Alex, RIP

    34. Briana Cunningham

      Well deserved as guest host.

    35. Bob Loblow

      Oh I see I was thinking of Ken jeong

    36. Al Carnali

      I wasn't a fan of Ken Jennings but he's doing a fantastic job. I hope the producers of Jeopardy go no further and keep Jennings on as the full time host.

    37. SkippyGh0st24

      Let us all be reminded that before someone leaves this world, let them hear our honor towards them.

    38. Karen Purvis

      Ken should be the permanent host of Jeopardy. Alex would've wanted it that way

    39. Charon Pink

      Thanks Ken. We all miss him

    40. Nunya Bidness

      Only one Alex. Close the show.

    41. Thelma’s life

      Great tribute and he looks like a natural.

    42. straswa

      RIP Alex Trebek, you will always be the host of Jeopardy.

    43. David Westcott

      It's only fitting that the GOAT Player step into the shoes of the GOAT Host!

    44. MaximumDestroyer

      For those in life who are here years later down the line, we were Blessed With Alex Trebex. Now you may not know him or grew up with him on your TV in your household but this man was a living legend.

    45. Charlie Irons

      Not even gonna lie; I had a tear...

    46. Francisco Rodriguez

      Vote for Ken Jennings, as the new Jeopardy! host.

    47. 9Ballr

      Two very classy human beings, Alex Trebek and Ken Jennings.

    48. phalcon23

      I hope the finally Jeopardy was "Who is Alex Trebek?".....

    49. Warsin

      Humans just replace each other

    50. Elly S

    90. KenyelxoTV

      It’s only fitting to make him permanent.

    91. Joanne Miller

      Ken should be the permanent host! If u choose someone from the news, many people will stop watching! They r not trust worthy!

    95. Zoozercat tacrezooZ

      just give him the gig

    96. Dave Hibbs

      The show will probably last a year and that's about it! Everytime someone tries to replace another in these shows it almost always ends a year later! RIP Alex.

    97. Excitable101

      I think Alex should have left the show awhile ago and enjoyed life a bit, much like Bob Barker the show wont be the same.


      The diamond hand signal… That’s free mason without a doubt

    99. Surprise Me

      Ah...USfilm deleting negative comments about lefty Ken Jennings. So...expected.
