Jeopardy! super champ Ken Jennings is normally the expert at handling pressure, but that’s what he’ll be feeling when he temporarily takes over hosting duties following the death of longtime Jeopardy! host, Alex Trebek. He said it’s nerve-wracking to know the legacy and the size of the shoes you’re filling. Ken feels that nobody wants him there. Ken said, “We all want to see Alex there for 100 years in a perfect world and, you know, I really just wanted to do the best I could so as not to let him down and Jeopardy! viewers down, so I felt a lot of pressure.” Katie Couric is going to guest host Jeopardy. She is going to do an entire week sometime this year.
