The wait is over. LeVar Burton started his stint as a “Jeopardy” guest host this week. Following a passionate social media campaign led by fans, the “The Reading Rainbow” and “Star Trek” star was announced as part of the show’s final lineup of guests back in April.
Burton has become a frontrunner for many “Jeopardy” fans to take over the hosting position with a Change dot org petition that now has over 250,000 signatures.
Levar described the experience of taping his 5 shows as being more than nervous and absolutely petrified. He said it was his wife, who’s his makeup artist that finally calmed him down and told him too just be yourself!
The show’s executive producer says they still have a few more weeks of guest hosts and they are definitely listening to what fans have to say! Read more here: https://www.nbcnews.com/pop-culture/pop-culture-news/levar-burton-guest-hosts-jeopardy-fans-are-rallying-boost-his-n1275070
