Jeopardy! host, Ken Jennings was just questioned about a possible DWTS stint. Though he is now the sole host of the hit game show since Mayim Bialik left, would he be open to the dancing competition?

Jeopardy! Ken Jennings Questioned About DWTS Stint

When Alex Trebek passed away, the massive search for his replacement began and it was no easy task. The Jeopardy! host was a staple and an icon. Finally, former 74-time winning contestant, Ken Jennings took the reins alongside actress and neuroscientist, Mayim Bialik. Fans seemed to like Ken much more and eventually, Mayim took a leave of absence due to the strikes. This made production see that they only needed one host as opposed to two though they did share hosting duties when it came to tournaments and one-offs.

Now, some viewers are curious if Ken is interested in taking a break from his hosting duties for something else. According to The Sun, fans asked questions to AI Ken Jennings on the Jeopardy! Instagram page. One person asked if he would ever appear on Dancing With the Stars. To that, he replied:

“Nobody in America wants to see me do Dancing With the Stars, I promise. I will save you that indignity.”

Though Ken may believe that, many of his fans and followers felt the complete opposite. More so, they were ready to fight to get him on the show.

Fans headed right over to the comment section to share how they felt about Ken Jennings joining the cast of DWTS:

  • okay seriously y’all, can we all legit start an official campaign or petition to get KEN ON DWTS!! even if he doesn’t want to.. i think he would be great and fun to watch.. (wayyyyy worse people have done it) 😂😜🕺🏻💃🏻#ken4DWTS #dwts #officialpetition
  • Ken we need you on Dancing With The Stars 😭😭
  • Um…I would love this man on DWTS.

He’s Got An Attitude

Admittedly, the Jeopardy! host does not do well when things don’t go his way. If people do not follow the rules, that is when he gets “mean” so maybe he would not be so great with his fellow DWTS contestants. At this point, the cast for Season 33 is up in the air and just speculation. They have said Sutton Stracke, Gerry Turner, and Jason Kelce. Is there possibly room for Ken Jennings if he would listen to his fans? Time will tell and if not Season 33, maybe 34?
