As people continue the guessing game of who will replace beloved Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek, who died of pancreatic cancer on November 8, it’s clear that fans themselves have some very strong ideas.

WhileTrebek himself vouched for CNN legal analyst Laura Coates and L.A. Kings announcer Alex Faust, and TV Insider readers voted for two of the “Greatest of All Time” contestants, people on Twitter have other thoughts.

So far, LeVar Burton is a frontrunner among fans, but others think one of his Star Trek: The Next Generation costars would be a good fit, too. Here are some celebs that fans would love to see behind the Jeopardy! podium.
