Ken Jennings hosts 'Jeopardy!' and honors 'the great Alex Trebek'

Ken Jennings debuted as guest host on “危险!” 星期一, and opened the show with a tribute to the late 亚历克斯·特雷贝克.

“与亚历克斯·特雷贝克(Alex Trebek)分享这个舞台是我一生中最伟大的荣誉之一,” 詹宁斯说. “Not many things in life are perfect, but Alex did this job pretty much perfectly for more than 36 年份, and it was even better up close. We were dazzled by his intelligence, charm and grace.
他继续: “Like all ‘Jeopardy!’ 粉丝, I miss Alex very much and I thank him for everything he did for all of us. Let’s be totally clear: No one will ever replace the great Alex Trebek. But we can honor him by playing the game he loved.
Jennings said that while recording the show he also kept a special token his pocket in a nod to Trebek.
He wrote on Twitter, “A friend gave me this piece of quiz show history: an audience ticket to Alex’s very first Jeopardy! pilot from 1983. (“ALEX TREBEK! DOOR PRIZES!”) I kept it in my pocket while guest-hosting Jeopardy! 本星期, as a good luck charm.
Jennings holds the record for most wins in the show’s history and has appeared on it over 100 次.
