Jeopardy! fans slam David Faber & 'have NO idea' who guest host is as show will announce permanent replacement 'soon'

JEOPARDY fans slammed David Faber and they had "no idea" who the guest host was as the financial analyst made his debut.

This comes as the iconic game show is set to soon announce their permanent replacement.

The 57-year-old kicked off his Jeopardy! week on Monday, however, fans weren't exactly sure who he was.

One fan wrote on Twitter: "I've never heard of this guy hosting," while another added, "I have no idea who this guy is."

A third chimed in with: "Who is this guy. David somebody?" while one said, "Who is this dude?"


David may not be known to the casual crowd, but he is quite notable as he has been on CNBC since 1993 as a financial and market analyst.

He currently cohosts their morning show, Squawk on the Street and monthly program, Business Nation.

When the guests hosts were announced, he joked: "He is the least well known out of an incredible group of guest hosts, but promises not to disappoint Jeopardy's many fans. Correct response: This guy!"

David, who is married to Jenny Harris, is not even a stranger to Jeopardy! as back in 2012 he took part in the their Power Players tournament – and he was able to beat basketball star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Fox News' Dana Perino to win $50,000.


While fans aren't exactly well-versed on David, unfortunately, he follows a very well known guest host: LeVar Burton.

In fact, the Reading Rainbow star was so well-received that most fans pleaded the network to make him the "permanent host."

After weeks of guests hosts, Jeopardy! will soon be revealing who will be standing behind the podium to permanently take over the late Alex Trebek.

A source close to the show’s production exclusively told The Sun: "The decision has been made as nearly all the guest hosts have gone through their stints.

“The season wraps aired episodes in a week or two and then summer reruns. During that time the announcement will be made and new episodes will commence.”

The insider added: "There are crowd favorites and there's some who are very vocal on gunning for the gig but the whole process is very closely guarded."
