LeVar Burton Reveals That He Doesn’t Want To Be New ‘Jeopardy Host !’


Full-Time Host LeVar Burton told Trevor Noah that he will no longer pursue the hosting job for ‘Jeopardy!’. He said, “The crazy thing is that when you set your sights on something…they say be careful of what you wish for, because what I found out is that it wasn’t the thing that I wanted after all. What I wanted was to compete. I mean, I wanted the job, right, but then, when I didn’t get it, it was, like ‘Well, okay, what’s next?'” He continued, “The opportunities that have come my way as a result of not getting that gig, I couldn’t have dreamt it up. If you had given me a pen and paper and said, ‘Well, so what do you want this to really look like?’ If it doesn’t include ‘Jeopardy’, I wouldn’t have been this generous to myself.”
