'Jeopardy' Fans Are Thirsting Over Mike Richards, the Show's New Guest Host

Mike Richards is the latest guest host on Jeopardy and people on Twitter are thirsting for him and also calling for him to be the permanent host!

The 45-year-old former game show host is the current executive producer of Jeopardy and he stepped in this week as they weren’t able to find a celebrity guest host for the week.

“I didn’t know I was going to be doing it until three days before, and so I had not prepared myself to host in the way that I know other guest hosts are. So there was just a lot to unpack. Plus, I also only owned one suit, so there was a little bit of scrambling there,” Mike told USA Today. “It was very fun; humbling doesn’t begin to describe the feeling. It hit me like a ton of bricks when Johnny Gilbert announced my name. That’s of course the last thing you hear when you start to walk out. … and it was overwhelming in the moment.”
