Trebek named Los Angeles Kings announcer Alex Faust and CNN legal analyst Laura Coates in his interview on Fox News' OBJECTified that hinted he'll likely step down from Jeopardy! in 2020, when he turns 80. "I guess there are worse ways to randomly see your name show up on TMZ!" tweeted a "flattered" Faust. Coates tweeted: "Incredibly honored & humbled @Jeopardy Alex Trebek 1) knows who I am 2) thinks I'd be a great host of my fave game show ever that I grew up watching w/ my family & still watch w/ my own kids." Andy Saunders, who runs The Jeopardy! Fan site, said the front-runner in his eyes is Anderson Cooper, who could work on Jeopardy! four to six days per month while keeping his CNN and 60 Minutes gigs. Saunders said of Trebek: “He has so much experience and he is such a good host that anyone, even Anderson Cooper, would find it incredibly difficult to fill Alex’s shoes."
- LeVar Burton pitches himself as Trebek's replacement: "I’ve had my eye on this gig for a looong time" he said, adding: "Sorry, brother! There is only one game show I’ve ever wanted to host... This Is Jeopardy!"
- Ken Kennings joked about replacing Trebek: "(be right back), deleting ten years of pedophilia jokes"

Trebek said on Fox News Channel's OJECTified that there's “50/50 (chance) and a little less" that he'll stay after his contract expires in two years, when he turns 80. Trebek also revealed his two picks to replace him, including Alex Faust, the 28-year-old play-by-play announcer for the Los Angeles Kings. If the producers want a female host, "there is an attorney, Laura Coates,” he said. “She’s African-American and she appears on some of the cable news shows from time to time.”
