CNN journalist Anderson Cooper will be one of the guest hosts of Jeopardy’s! latest season.
When is Anderson Cooper hosting Jeopardy! game show?
The journalist admitted to “being nervous” to host the game show and reminisced on being a fan when he was younger.
Cooper tweeted on the Jeopardy! account, writing: “In high school, I became a ‘Jeopardy!’ fan. I’m a two-time ‘Celebrity Jeopardy!’ champ, and this week, I’ll be the newest ‘Jeopardy!’ guest host.”
He told Jimmy Kimmel on April 16 about his past participation on the game show, saying: “First time, I crushed it. I panicked the night before because I sort of agreed to do it without really thinking about it.
“I realized, oh my god, I don’t know anything about geography — I don’t know where the Baltic Sea or the Arabian Sea [is] — all these things run through your mind.”
Cooper continued: “The second time, I was playing against Cheech Marin, and I was like, oh my God, this is going to be a cakewalk,”
“’I’ve seen Cheech & Chong movies, the synapses can’t be firing that quickly. Turns out he’s the smartest guy, the quickest guy.
“He destroyed me. And do you know what it’s like to walk into the CNN newsroom the day after Cheech Marin has destroyed you on Jeopardy? Like, Wolf Blitzer reading the paper, giving you side eye as you walk by.”
