The View: Sunny Hostin explains why she’s not hosting Jeopardy! 

During an appearance on the Just Jenny podcast hosted by Jenny Hutt, The View co-host revealed what happened when she put in a bid to guest-host on Jeopardy! Sunny explained that she loves the game show and said, “I can say this, I wanted to try out to become one of the hosts of Jeopardy! I thought it was really cool.”

Then, The View co-host continued, “I’ve competed on Jeopardy!… I’ve lost on Jeopardy!… it’s like taking a bullet if you think about it.”

Sunny said, “I wanted to try out for it, and I knew that they were trying out other people, like Robin Roberts from ABC. I knew Sara Haines, who’s a co-host, has her own game show on ABC.”

However, she said that she ended up being rejected because she’s “too controversial.” So, even though she wants to, she won’t be guest-hosting the game show.

Fans react to her being rejected.

On Twitter, a few fans shared their thoughts about The View co-host not getting a chance to guest-host the game show. Some don’t understand how Sunny is any more controversial than others who have guest-hosted Jeopardy! in the past. One Twitter user noted that Dr. Oz was previously chosen to fill in as host, as were other more controversial celebrities.

At this point, it doesn’t look like Sunny will be hosting Jeopardy! any time soon. Maybe there will be changes in the future. Whatever happens, she will likely continue to keep fans in the loop.
