Earlier this month, Jeopardy! viewers saw Alex Trebek congratulate the game show’s first openly transgender winner in one of the late host’s final episodes.

Kate Freeman is the first transgender and lesbian contestant.

She later told local Michigan channel MLive she was “honored to be able to meet Alex before his passing.”

Viewers saw Kate win almost $6K on the show after revealing it had been her dream to appear on Jeopardy since she was a child.

She told the publication: “It really lived up to my childhood dreams of being on the show. I was honored to be able to meet Alex before his passing.

“I spent a lot of time learning about and reflecting on my gender identity in grad school, coming out as transgender and lesbian a few months before graduating. I’m proud to be out and I know representation is important.”


As for who will Alex’s shoes, Good Morning America’s George Stephanopoulos is reportedly eying the position.

According to The Wrap, the ABC News chief anchor and political correspondent’s reps take over as host of the long-running game show.

The outlet claims that the 59-year-old is “actively” after the now open role.

The show has confirmed the first guest host will be ex-contestant Ken Jennings
