‘Jeopardy!’ Host, Mike Richards, Reportedly ‘Rattles a TV Institution’ by Abruptly Stepping Down as Host


Jeopardy! is a TV institution with over 30 years on the air, still in much the same form that the show was originally conceived. After long-time host Alex Trebek died in 2020, the show struggled to find a new host.

After months of auditioning guest hosts for the prestigious position, fans were frustrated when executive producer Mike Richards was chosen to succeed Trebek in the role, rather than all the other talented performers who tried out. Fans were confused by his appointment to the hosting gig and flabbergasted when Richards abruptly stepped down from the role shortly after being named the host.
