Ken Jennings Honors Alex Trebek In His First Episode as Guest Host

Guest Jeopardy! host Ken Jennings openned the first episode of the show without 36 year host Alex Trebek with an emotional open honoring the late host.

He reflects on his time with Trebek on Jeopardy! and describes it as "one of the greatest honors of my life."

Jennings holds the record for the longest winning streak on the U.S. game show Jeopardy! with 74 consecutive wins and will serve as one of many guest hosts of the show this year as Jeopardy! searches for a permanent host to fill the job.

Jennings does point out that "no one will ever replace the great Alex Trebek" and fans agree.
