US quiz champion Ken Jennings will be the first of several guest hosts on Jeopardy! following the death of enduring host Alex Trebek, aged 80.
Production is due to resume in the US at the end of the month.
Jennings earlier this year claimed the title of Jeopardy!’s “Greatest of All Time” winning 74 consecutive games and $2,520,700 in prizes (is that the trophy?).
Producer Sony Pictures Television said that a permanent host has not been named, and other hosts have not yet been announced.
Jeopardy! screens in Australia on FOX Classics and SBS VICELAND.
