Joe Buck is trying out for a full-time gig as host of Jeopardy!, and we don’t know how to feel. The Twitter streets are littered with Joe Buck hate, but he’s got to be popular for a reason.
Can’t just suck at your job and continue to land World Series and potential Jeopardy! gigs, right? It’s possible that he’s better than we give him credit for.
NEWS: Joe Buck will be a guest host on “Jeopardy!” trying out for the permanent job, The Post has learned.https://t.co/d0QohnaBO8— Andrew Marchand (@AndrewMarchand) April 17, 2021
According to the New York Post’s report, Buck’s “tryout” will not affect his schedule as voice of MLB and NFL on Fox. He’s basically doing what Aaron Rodgers did prior to the Packers quarterback saying he was interested in the full-time gig.
We would want this job, too. It’s gonna pay handsomely, and it seems fun. Rodgers even called his short tenure a ‘surreal experience.’ I just don’t know how thrilled people will be when they find out Joe Buck is everywhere. World Series, NFL, and now a game show host?
It’s likely too much — even for his fans.
So, what do YOU think about Joe Buck becoming the next host of Jeopardy!? I’d imagine you’re not thrilled, and if you’re not, leave a comment as to who’d be a better fit.

Actually, I’m good with it. If it means that his dulcet tones and ham-fisted style are no longer to be heard on Sports broadcasts, I’m REALLY good with it!
I didn’t even know jeopardy was still on Joe buck meh whatever
Exactly! Long Live Permanent Jeopardy Host Joe Buck.
Shew. That photo makes him look like he woke up from a 3-day binge….
Get Jack Bucks wife to do Jeopardy, she is the alpha in that family.
I’m still grieving over the death of Ray Flemming.
Art Fleming, but we get your point…Art was GREAT!!!
The guest host thing has been overdone. Just pick someone already.
This Jeopardy gig is just like all the sports broadcasting jobs that Joe Buck currently holds, as there are definitively many more deserving talents than Joe Bucks who should be holding these positions. Joe Bucks shouldn’t even be working because he doesn’t like sports and probably is not interested in Jeopardy either. People with more passion in life or in anything should always get jobs and get paid ahead of Joe Buck, who is honestly wasting life’s precious resources for existing and not being grateful or interested in sports or anything that he broadcasts for.
Whenever I feel like I’m getting too emotional, I pull up his call of the Helmet Catch and remember that even if a top 5 moment is happening, you can speak casually and feel ambivalent if you try hard enough.
After each Final Jeopardy round will he say, “We’ll see you tomorrow night!”?
All I need to say is, “Joe (Fortunate Son) Buck”.
Joe was very good as interviewer/host of DirecTV’s “Undeniable” so I don’t doubt that he will also do well on Jeopardy.
