The View co-host who was denied an audition for Jeopardy! Host – Nicki Swift
While we all know the fate of the “Jeopardy!” hosts after Alex Trebek’s death, one person reportedly didn’t even get a chance to audition for the gig, despite interest from him. In an episode of the podcast. “Just Jenny” With Jenny Hutt, “The View” co-host Sunny Hostin explained her desire to host the show, admitting that she sadly never got the chance. “I can say this, I wanted to try to become one of the hosts of ‘Jeopardy!’ I thought it was great. I love ‘Jeopardy!'” Hostin explained. “I’ve competed on ‘Jeopardy!’… I’ve lost on ‘Jeopardy!’… It’s like taking a bullet if you think about it.”
The talk show host then elaborated. “He wanted to do a test and he knew they were testing other people, like ABC’s Robin Roberts,” Hostin said. “I knew that Sara Haines, who is a co-host, has her own game show on ABC,” she said, adding that she was told she was “too controversial” to host.
As of this writing, Hostin still has his chair with the ladies of “The View” and has been at it for years. According to abc, the former CNN legal analyst joined the ladies of “The View” in the series’ 20th season after serving as a senior legal correspondent for ABC. In 2022, Variety reported that Hostin signed a three-year contract to remain on the panel of the hit daytime show. Although he is not suffering from the work, the “Danger!” snub surely still burns.
