“We look forward to each guest host bringing their unique abilities to the show and to our contestants winning a lot of money that we can match for charity,” “Jeopardy!” Executive Producer Mike Richards said in a statement.

These are all pretty solid picks for the second round of guest hosts for the show. I know former “Jeopardy!” champion and consulting producer Ken Jennings is doing a pretty good job so far, but it’ll be fun to see some other faces behind the podium.
I think I’m most excited for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ stint at the guest host role, but also interested to see what approach Cooper takes.
I still miss Alex Trebek the most, but I think doing the rotation of guest hosts was the best route to take. I don’t think it would have been good to jump right back in with a brand new host.
