"We look forward to each guest host bringing their unique abilities to the show and to our contestants winning a lot of money that we can match for charity", said executive producer Mike Richards in a statement Tuesday.
Dr. Mehmet Oz has hosted "The Dr. Oz" show on Fox since 2009.
Cliffside Park's own Dr. Oz will be taking the helm at "Jeopardy!". The thing is: there is just something so attractive and reassuring about facts, simple straightforward facts. Presumably, each guest host will appear for a similar amount of time. It is not known yet which game show week they will step on the podium.

Four additional names have been added to the roster of Jeopardy! guest hosts.
Other temporary hosts include Aaron Rodgers, quarterback for the Green Bay Packers, actress (and neuroscientist!) Mayim Bialik ("The Big Bang Theory", "Call Me Kat") and "60 Minutes" correspondent Bill Whitaker.
Jeopardy! viewers are seemingly enjoying 74-time champ Ken Jennings guest hosting the long-running game show to replace Alex Trebek. Richards will take over the duties after Jennings.
This rotation of guest hosts on Jeopardy! comes following the death of long-time host Alex Trebek, who passed away in November 2020 at age 80 following a battle with pancreatic cancer.
