Eight months after the death of beloved “Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek, the daily syndicated quiz show chose its executive producer Mike Richards as Trebek’s successor over a field of celebrity candidates.

But after fan backlash to a selection process that turned messy in recent weeks, producer Sony split the pie by naming another guest host, actor Mayim Bialik, as emcee for “Jeopardy!” primetime and spinoff series, including a new college championship.

In another nod to “Jeopardy!” devotees, longtime champion Ken Jennings will return as a consulting producer.

In light of all this, we wanted to know: Who was your favorite guest host over the past few months?

We saw the likes of Katie Couric, Anderson Cooper, Robin Roberts and fan favorite LeVar Burton step into Trebek’s shoes, with each one bringing his or her own personality and flair to the job.

Viewers also loved when NFL star Aaron Rodgers took over hosting duties. He was surprisingly really great at the gig.
