Trebek Searching for Canada's Next Prime Minister
Who is the host of Canada's Next Prime Minister?
Alex Trebek, of course.
The Jeopardy! host is returning to his Great White North roots (he's an Ontario native) to emcee the CBC reality series that is almost as crazy as it sounds, The Hollywood Reporter reports.
Four aspiring politicians will engage in worldly debates and conversations with three former Canadian prime ministers to show that they have the goods for the job. The good news? The winner won't literally become the next P.M., but will instead pocket $50,000 and get a six-month paid internship with Magna International, The Dominion Institute and the Canada-U.S. Fulbright Program.
"I'm honoured to take part in a show of this calibre and share the stage with this esteemed panel of prime ministers and young leaders in the making," Trebek said in a statement.
