It’s been a week since Savannah Guthrie was the guest host on “Jeopardy” and fans are loving him.
While the reaction to the “Today Show” host’s takeover is positive, Guthrie admits she was “nervous and intimidated” to replace the late Alex Trebek.
Sit down DailyMailTV host Thomas Roberts, Guthrie said, “It’s very different, actually, than what we do on ‘The Today Show.”

“I was intimidated. I was nervous and it was a challenge, ”she explained. “And there was a part of me when I started to think, why am I doing this? You know, this is so out of my comfort zone. But in the end, I was very happy that I did. “
Guthrie added: “It’s almost. It has to be very precise. And the biggest stress for me was trying to make sure the game kept running. And you maintain the integrity of the game. “

Later in the interview, Guthrie talked about celebrating 10 years on “Today.”
“I feel like it has been the best 10 years of my life,” he said. “I’ve had experiences that I could never have imagined would happen to me, a kid from Tucson, Arizona.”
The former attorney joins Mike Richards, Katie Couric, Bill Whitaker, Sanjay Gupta, Anderson Cooper, Aaron Rodgers, Dr. Oz and Mayim Bialik, who have been guest hosts of the show since Trebek’s death last year.
Trebek passed away after a long battle with cancer. He was 80 years old.
