Ken Jennings Debuts as 'Jeopardy!' Host


Former contestant Ken Jennings made his debut as the host of 'Jeopardy!' He also gave a very heartfelt tribute:

Ken Jennings made his debut as guest host on Jeopardy!, Monday. Jennings is the winningest player in the show’s history, and recently won the “Greatest of All Time” tournament. So it made sense when production named him guest host after Trebek’s death last November. Jennings opened the show with a touching tribute to the former host.

“Sharing this stage with Alex Trebek was one of the greatest honors of my life,” Jennings said. “Not many things in life are perfect, but Alex did this job pretty much perfectly for more than 36 years, and it was even better up close. We were dazzled by his intelligence, charm and grace.”
