Petition For MatPat To Become New Jeopardy Host Got Over 50k Signatures
MatPat had previously shown interest in playing the host of the popular game show, Jeopardy. This came after the previous host was fired.

He said, "I have four YouTube channels that have threaded the needle of information and entertainment for four years."
The influencer also suggested other names which will be perfect for hosting Jeopardy. He talked about his past controversies as he expressed his will to host the game show.
