Alex Trebek Says This Star Should Replace Him
ALEX TREBEK TALKS SUCCESSORS TO JEOPARDY AND JOKINGLY NAMES AN UNLIKELY CANDIDATE
(CNN) – Alex Trebek has chosen the “girl” he believes could take over Jeopardy in the future.
You could say his choice is golden!
The longtime game show host suggested Betty White as his successor.
The 80-year-old and White who is 98-years old are long-time friends.
Trebek says he jokingly picks White because the audience expects someone younger.
But he’s not planning on leaving Jeopardy anytime soon.
He told “Good Morning America” that he will do the job as long as he is capable.
Trebek has helmed the show since 1984.
He was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer last year, but says he is doing well.
