Drew Carey.
When you're at the grocery game and you hear the beep, think of all the fun you could have at "Crazy Rachel's Checkout Counter!"

Totally serious one, here -- Todd Alan Crain, the man who hosted Watson's many practice games. I recall reading that Trebek secretly watched Todd host a game, then surprised him afterward and basically gave him a seal of approval.
The Game Show Forum: over 15 years of beating the **** out of the competition, and still going strong.

I'm just a mind wanderer, walking in eternity...

It has to be someone who can take the grind of reading hundreds of questions per taping day without burning out.

Wolf Blitzer. Seriously. He's not available and would never do it, but he's the right type.

After the whooping he took last time he played?

Hosting the show would be different from playing it, but yeah, Blitzer's not going to give up the CNN gig he's held for years now. I like Mark Wahlberg or Pat Kiernan.

True, but it seems to me if you pick someone who has played the game at all previously, you'd want someone who made a good showing rather than someone who was pretty much humiliated.

I agree with everyone who said Pat Kiernan.  He'd be a perfect fit, IMO.

That makes no sense.

Well, it makes sense in my head. Maybe it makes sense in someone else's.

I dug it too. Who would buy into Wolf Blitzer as host when he did so laughably badly last time out? And that's on the easier stuff, not even Regular Recipe.

I for one could not give a rip whether the host is poor at their own game or not, since they are the host, and not a contestant. It utterly does not matter.
