It seems that Jeopardy! is hoping to distract fans a bit from the drama surrounding the new host of the show. Recently, executive producer Mike Richards was chosen as the new daily host. He later quit after some of his lawsuits and offensive remarks were uncovered. Instead of addressing this on social media, the Instagram account is taking a different approach.
The latest post shares some throwback photos of the late Alex Trebek. It shares photos from his trip to the Galápagos Islands. In the photos, Alex is seen next to a gigantic turtle, with a life vest near the water, and next to a sleeping seal. Near the seal, he fakes sleeping as if they are taking a little nap together.

The three photos are simply captioned, “This Galápagos trip was wild.” Fans loved to see Alex’s smiling face again and many talked about how much they miss the late host.
While many celebrities and fans are behind LeVar Burton to take over as the next host, his ratings weren’t that high. Some reports say that Jeopardy! champion Ken Jennings was next in line to host. Only time will tell who will become the next host of Jeopardy!
