There are rumors abound of who will replace Alex Trebek as the next host of Jeopardy. While this petition will not mention why others in the running should not be considered, it will give reasons why the obvious choice to replace Trebek is Ken Jennings.

Jennings is only 38. this means he has potential to be host for a couple of decades.
Jennings is smart. Very smart. He had the longest run on Jeopardy, meaning he has more on the job training than anyone else in the world.
Jennings can banter like no other, key for contestant interviews.
Jennings already has a large following. He has over 100,000 followers on Twitter; this for someone who isn't even on TV every day. As a benchmark, there's an NBC co-anchor who is seen on friggin everything, and he barely has 200,000 followers.
Speaking of following, a key demo of Jennings' following is nerds. Guess who watches Jeopardy.
Jennings knows the answer to "This actor played Keyser Soze" but wouldn't answer it. Out of respect.
Name another famous Jeopardy contestant that isn't Darrell Hammond playing Sean Connery. You can't. That's how ingrained Jennings is in Jeopardy lore.
He won't back down if the apocalypse ever happened http://bit.ly/12W7PuR
But seriously, you know in your heart that Jennings would be the best Jeopardy host, so does everyone who watched the show, and so does everyone who co-signs this.
