Literally the only thing I know about Olden Polynice is that he’s the answer to a Scottie Pippen trivia question.
I know he played at UVA.

the guy pulling a cliff claven with the "who is the Russian dog" answer was great.

 :lol:  I thought the same thing!  "Who are 3 people who've never been in my kitchen?"

About a year or so ago, I heard Dan Patrick's name as a possibility to host.  Speculation that he'd never do it immediately following Alex's passing, but maybe a few years down the road.

I like Ken Jennings, but I think he talks and reads the clues too fast.

Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing a series of unknown guest hosts chosen from auditions, just like contestants are.

I’ve heard several people say this, and I agree that he’s been talking fast, but last year when they re-ran the early Trebek episodes I was struck by how fast he talked in the early years. I’m sure part of that in his case was feeling a need to explain the rules as they went along prior to the show becoming a fixture. I wonder how much of it, in both their cases, might stem from a feeling of pressure to get in as much as possible within the allotted time (recognizing the show is edited)—sort of like how sometimes as a student it felt like there was less time for an exam than there really was.
