They should run a special round of games pitting these guest host against each other. A winner takes the job Jeopardy.They can play for the normal dollar amounts and the money amounts won by the top three can be donated to Pancreatic cancer research in honor of Alex.

IMO, Richards is the best choice. He was obviously at ease behind the podium and interacting with the contestants. He was also very pleasant to listen to when reading the clues.

Mr. Burton was only given one week to host and I for one am upset that he didn't have the same amount of time as the others. The big shots at Jeopardy gave him 1/2 a chance because the Jeopardy followers wanted him to have a shot. Their minds have been made up from the beginning.. Wanted us to have a grieving period.
