He is that, but I think he's a better option than Ken Jennings.

The problem is now, the aren't any real game show hosts anymore. They're all just washed up actors looking for a gig. Most ex game show hosts began their careers as broadcasters, so they had a great feel for live TV and had good voices.

I didn't watch the show but saw his clip on YouTube.

That squeaky voice and he comes across as a twerp to be honest, doesn't work.

Alex had a commanding presence. Ken does not.

I had high hopes for Jennings.

However, his delivery is too monotone. It almost sounds like a robot is reading the clues. Plus, his personality is ..... lacking.

I thought he did a good not great job. He is much more robotic than Trebek but maybe he’ll get better.


During quarantine when they were showing the first Trebek episodes he appeared robotic and without personality. I’m sure Ken was nervous as hell.

It was his first episode, following up an absolute icon who did it for 30+ years. Give him some time.

This - many folks thought Trebek was too much of a young, disco hipster to follow in the footsteps of Art Fleming.

Besides, Jennings is a guest host for now. Who knows who the permanent host will be.

His Twitter feed is pretty clever and amusing.

He did pretty good. Agreed that he just does not have the voice for the gig long-term though. Not anything he can fix really.

He's not a host.

The voice is not right. Even if he got over the whole sounding uncomfortable, the tone doesn't work. IMO, of course.

I think LeVar Burton could be a great host.

Watching Ken Jennings on this show is as awkward as when the teacher would let an honor student get up and lead the class.

Am I wrong thinking that Mike Rowe would be great as Jeopardy host. His voice and his like-ability would translate very well to Jeopardy.
