One of the biggest “Jeopardy!” all-time champions has strong ideas about new hosts – especially the everyday guy, Mike Richards, … which he clearly thinks was perhaps not the best choice.
We spoke to Austin rogers – which had a string of hits in 2017 – in New York on Wednesday, and got his two cents on the iconic quiz show’s New Facesâ¦ and he gave us the right dope on their EP and Mayim Bialik take the reins after-Trebek.
Look at how he responded when we asked him what he thought of the announcement – seems he doesn’t think MR was the most ideal route to go … but a decent option nonetheless.
The point is – and as Austin pointed out to us – Mike has a lot of experience in game showsâ¦ and he was pretty damn good when he was a guest host a few months ago. And, as far as Mayim – Austin says she certainly ticks a few boxes for what may or may not be a damage control moveâ¦ in her eyes, anyway.
There is some controversy with her getting the cock – she was a notorious anti-vaxxer (one with a doctorate, no less) … but apparently changed her mind about the jab, and said the latter months that she and her children are in fact vaccinated against COVID-19. So everything is fine ???
Either way, Austin says, no matter what he feelsâ¦ he’s just happy the show continues – and hopes these two can pretty much carry on his legacy. BTW, he gave us a look at his latest ventures – and it looks like Austin is about to do a book tour for his new offering – “The Ultimate Pub Quiz Book by the Smartest Guy in the Bar “.
