Ken Jennings honors Alex Trebek while stepping down as ‘Jeopardy!’ guest host
Ken Jennings bid “Jeopardy!” fans farewell in a tweet.
The quiz show’s champion shared his goodbye late Friday night after his final episode as guest host aired.
“That’s a wrap on my six weeks of @Jeopardy guest hosting,” Jennings wrote alongside a picture of himself smiling on stage. “Thanks for watching, thanks for your patience with a tough learning curve…and, as always, thank you Alex.”
Jennings took over as guest host of the NBC gameshow after longtime host Alex Trebek died on Nov. 8.
Trebek, 80, appeared in pre-taped episodes posthumously eight weeks after his death. His last episode aired on Jan. 8, which also featured a special tribute that commemorated his 37 years of hosting.
