(This did not happen, but lol.)
It’s a weird thing to reconcile. As a host, Mike Richards isn’t actually so bad at the job, though he lacks the same vibe as Alex Trebek. If it wasn’t for all of the other stuff surrounding his appointment, we might even be saying that Richards doing something different than what Trebek did is a good thing, who knows? (Although it’s worth pointing out different seems to be what the people wanted, just more in a diverse way.) Instead, allegations surrounding Richards’ character and not his performance are what ousted him from the job. I’m not the only one to mention this, however.
