Alex Trebek Reveals Which Celebrity He Wants to Replace Him on 'Jeopardy'

Alex Trebek has been the host of Jeopardy! since the beginning, and he’s now revealing which celebrity he would choose to replace him if he stepped away from the show.

During his interview with Good Morning America, Alex responded to the question, asking, “I joke with the audience all the time and I say, ‘Betty White,’ because they want somebody younger, somebody funnier,” he said. “Betty and I have been friends for a long, long time.”

Alex has been battling stage four pancreatic cancer and recently gave an update on how he’s doing. He hit the one year mark in his battle back in February and we’re wishing him the best as he continues his recovery. Get well soon, Alex!
