You could say this man is quite familiar with Jeopardy!. After winning the game-show a total of 74 times, Ken Jennings is no stranger to the show. Now he has a chance to host it!


'Jeopardy!' Is About To Resume Production

Starting November 30th, new episodes of Jeopardy! will be filmed and the first host in the series of interim hosts will be Ken Jennings, who won JEOPARDY!'s Greatest of All Time special episode along with over 70 regular games. Executive Producer Mike Richards told fans that former host Alex Trebek has always said that he wanted the show to go on, even after his passing. Trebek would probably be pleased with the fact that a long-time player will continue his job as host, even if it is just for a little while. The show will announce the other upcoming hosts in the following months.

Look Out For 'Jeopardy!' After The Holidays

The show is temporarily pausing its air-time until after the holidays. Starting the week of January 4th, 2021, the show will air what are deemed 10 of Trebek's best episodes will air until the following week, when the new episodes begin to air with Jennings as the host.

Jennings confirms the news with fans on Twitter:
