Katie Couric is set to become a guest host on Jeopardy! sometime soon. Currently, longtime contestant Ken Jennings is hosting. In addition to Katie, actress Mayim Bialik, Bill Whitaker, and Aaron Rodgers are also set to host at some point.
Katie recently shared her thoughts on pro-Trump rioters on Real Time with Bill Maher. Now, Jeopardy! producers are worried because Jeopardy! viewers are generally more traditional and identity as Republicans.
