Who should host Jeopardy! next? In these terrifying times, the mere idea of anyone but Alex Trebek presiding over America's favorite trivia gauntlet is almost too grisly to entertain. Since 1984, he has been the endlessly charismatic and formerly mustachioed face of the show, offering contestants encouragement and signature Trebek sassy moments even after he was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer in 2019.

No matter how we fight it, however, at some point, someone else will inevitably have to host Jeopardy!, so who should replace Trebek? Who can possibly wrangle the three-ring circus of arcane knowledge, lightning-fast responses, and even clever Jeopardy! answers?
