Longtime "Jeopardy!" host Alex Trebek died on November 8 after a battle with pancreatic cancer. As tributes poured in for the beloved game show host, fans began to wonder who would replace him — and soon after, they started betting. Here are some of their most popular picks, sourced from a sports betting website.
Ken Jennings, who is considered to be one of the best contestants on "Jeopardy!" of all time, was hired this year to be a consultant for the show. He is the site's top favorite to land the gig.
ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos is the site's second-highest pick for the post.
Fans on Twitter petitioned for "Reading Rainbow" host LeVar Burton. The gambling website has him in the top three potential replacements.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Despite saying he wasn't interested in the role in September, Neil deGrasse Tyson was listed as a top pick.
Longtime "Wheel of Fortune" host Pat Sajak is also a well-liked candidate. His show currently follows "Jeopardy!" during the primetime hour.
CNN legal analyst Laura Coates has the best odds to be the replacement among the women listed on the gambling site.
Ryan Seacrest, co-host of "Live with Kelly and Ryan," has cited Trebek as a big influence on him and said he considered him a family member. Odds put him in the top 10.
Popular late night show host Jimmy Kimmel has better odds than many, closing out the site's top 10 picks.
Odds have journalist Katie Couric among the top 15 potential replacements.
ESPN senior writer Mina Kimes made on the list after fans campaigned for her to be next host.
The gambling website has "The Price is Right" host Drew Carey in the middle of the pack of potential replacements.
Steve Harvey, host of "Family Feud," is also on the list. The website puts his odds of landing the job relatively low.
Joe Rogan, a popular UFC and podcast host, is listed among the celebrities with the lowest odds.
Odds are also slim for James Holzhauer, who battled Ken Jennings to be the greatest "Jeopardy!" player of all time.
President Trump had the worst odds of anyone on the site's list. Despite that, a manager at the gambling site said bets are still being placed for him to be the replacement.
