‘Jeopardy’ Host Alex Trebek May Retire, Wants LA Kings Announcer to Replace Him

Alex Trebek can’t host “Jeopardy!” forever — in fact, he says there’s a good chance he’ll retire from the show soon — and he’s already got a replacement in mind … with a very fitting name. Trebek talked to Harvey on the latest episode of…


Alex Rodriguez vs. Michael Strahan: Unexpected Feud Alert!

What does the most-hated man in the New York sports world have in common with one of its most-beloved figures?

Well, as it turns out, they’re both on TV, and they both can’t stand each other!

A-Rod and Michael Strahan

Yes, according to Radar Online, Michael Strahan and Alex Rodriguez are locked in a heated competition for airtime.

“Alex Rodriguez is everywhere!” an insider tells the site.

“Michael is feeling overshadowed — even though he’s six-foot-five!”

Yes, it seems Strahan is concerned about the possibility of Rodriguez edging him out as the TV world’s most in-demand former athlete.

Apparently, Michael was okay with Alex calling baseball games but now feels the disgraced ex-Yankee is trampling on his turf.

Sources claim Strahan was not happy when Rodriguez landed a spot on ABC’s Shark Tank and was seriously pissed off when the boyfriend of Jennifer Lopez was hired by Good Morning America.

Strahan, of course, has been a regular on GMA since 2016, and it seems he feels the show simply isn’t big enough for two retired jocks.

“Michael was irate,” a source spilled.

“He immediately felt threatened that Alex is being groomed to replace him.”

Part of the problem, it seems, is that Strahan and Rodriguez have remarkably similar personalities:

“They both have massive egos,” the insider says.

“Michael is seething that all anybody talks about is A-Rod.”

In addition, Strahan reportedly doesn’t believe the scandal-plagued Rodriguez deserves a second shot at stardom.

“Michael can’t believe the image renovation Alex has gotten on TV,” the source claims.

“He used to be hated. Now Michael is telling pals Alex is set to replace him!”

Frankly, we have a hard time believing this story.

Not because of how chill Strahan seems on TV.

Any seasoned media vet can fake a persona, and the man obviously has a competitive streak inside him, so it’s not hard to imagine him clashing with a younger up-and-comer.

No, the reason we’re not buying that Strahan feels threatened is that dude is on TV more than Big Bang Theory reruns.

We literally have no idea how the hell he sleeps.

The man is up at 5 am for Good Morning America; he films random crap like $ 100,000 Pyramid in the afternoons, and all football season he has to pretend to laugh at Terry Bradshaw’s jokes while doing Fox’s NFL pre-game show.

Besides, even if Strahan and A-Rod are really in direct competition with one another, at least they can both take comfort in the fact that they’re not Joe Buck.

Truly, there’s no worse fate than that.


Alex Templeman, Becca Kufrin Suitor, Accused of Assault… and Battery!

As reality TV fans know all too well, Becca Kufrin had to deal with a jerk during her run on The Bachelor.

(Yes, Arie Luyendyk Jr., we’re looking at YOU.)

But now that the new Bachelorette has gotten over her very public humiliation at the hands of Luyendyk, we’re now forced to ask and wonder:

Is she about to deal with a violent jerk?!?

With the premiere of Becca’s Bachelorette season just a few weeks ago (May 28 at 8/7c on ABC!!!!!), Radar Online has obtained legal documents from Dekalb County Court in Georgia, a suitor on upcoming episodes named Alex Templeman is accused of some pretty terrible behavior.

Specifically, he’s accused of “committing an unprovoked physical attack on the plaintiff with his fists, therefore committing battery” against a friend named Salvatore Nappo.

This alleged incident took place on July 3, 2017.

Nappo was friends with a woman Templeman was dating at the time, 

“Templeman and Nappo belong to a circle of friends,” the report states, adding in more detail:

“He was making derogatory comments to him over text and then he brutally assaulted him.

“He got the hell beat out of him. He busted open his eye socket, leaving it fractured. His nose was busted up pretty bad.”

Radar has also obtained a couple of these text messages, one of which we’ve shared below:

“Only degenerate I know of is the biggest f–kboy in ATL and scumbag. Your boy,” writes Alex in one message, going on to claim that Salvatore has been “bad mouthing him.”

When asked why he hated the plaintiff, Alex replies:

“Bc he’s a scumbag. Out for himself. After about a year of hanging out with him I’ve thrown in the towel.”

Salvatore is claiming he suffered serious bodily injury from Alex’s attack and is seeking $ 2.5 million to cover medical expenses.

Templeman – who is a 31-year-old project manager from Atlanta – has denied the allegations and says he was acting in self-defense.

He has also asked the court to dismiss the case, which is still pending.

The real question here, of course, is how Templeman and his past got through ABC background checks.

We’re not saying he’s guilty of all that’s alleged here, but one would still think the accusations on their own would be enough to prevent Templeman from being selected as a suitor.

Just how far will he go on Becca’s season?

Elsewhere, producers may have dropped the ball by also bringing on a suitor named Lincoln… who is known for dropping his pants at the wrong time.

He has a reputation for pooping on the floor, is what we’re saying.

“I saw this guy with his pants around his ankles, with toilet paper on the ground, and he’s going to the bathroom on the toilet paper,” a source told Life & Style recently.

(Really, we’re not making this up.)

Continued this insider:

“I kind of double took and couldn’t really understand what I was seeing. Either the next day or the day after that I walk in and he’s doing it again, and I’m like ‘You got to be kidding me.’

“When I told my buddies they were like, ‘What?’ they didn’t believe me so I snapped a picture from when you walk in… just to kind of prove it to them — not knowing that the guy is going to be on a TV show two years later.”

Well… okay then!

Good luck, Becca.

You may need it.
