The Internet is freaking out over the possibility that Alex Trebek could be retiring from Jeopardy! He is a bit of an icon in that role but he wasn't the first host of Jeopardy! and he won't be the last. Still, if we had to replace Alex, who would we replace him with? I have some ideas.

    The Dreamy Anderson Cooper

    Anderson Cooper is a smart guy. He's actually done pretty well on celebrity Jeopardy! He is good with people and has an interesting sense of humor too. Somehow I don't think we'd be able to pry him away from his cable news duties to come and reveal answers about Etruscans.

    Ron White

    Ron White is a funny shut-your-mouth and he's a heck of a lot smarter than he wants you or me to believe. I think Ron's unique view of life, sense of humor, and propensity to drink on the job would certainly bring a new air of danger to the time-honored game show. I'll take Tater Salad for $100, please.

    Seth MacFarlane

    He has a unique wit and charm about him. He's hosted the Academy Awards and you can tell by his comedy writing that he has a lot going on between his ears. He's also done enough parodies of Jeopardy! on his multiple TV shows that you know he is a fan.

    Danica McKeller

    Yeah, it's Winnie Cooper from The Wonder Years. Don't be deceived by her looks. Danica is a brilliant woman with several degrees and best-selling math books to her credit. She could hold her own with the Jeopardy! brain trust and be incredibly pleasing to look at while she's doing it.

    Tom Hanks

    He's loveable he's approachable he can show humility and he's obviously a pretty smart cookie. He's done well on Celebrity Jeopardy! Well, it was kind of like Celebrity Jeopardy! He kind of has an Alex Trebek look about him too.
