WASHINGTON (CIRCA) — Alex Trebek reflected on his career and the #MeToo movement during a recent interview with Vulture.

The host of "Jeopardy" says he believes it is a scary time to be a man in the midst of this movement.

"When the #MeToo movement started, I had discussions with the staff during production meetings. I said, 'My gosh, this has got to be a scary time for men,'" Trebek said.

He continued saying, "I’m fortunate that I’ve never been in a position of power where I might be able to lord it over somebody sexually. I said, 'But there are guys out there — young guys are stupid in their teens.' There’s nothing stupider than a teenage boy. They’re operating on testosterone."

The game show host, who recently renewed his contract until 2020, also says that he believes a woman will be picked to replace him.

"We’re in the #MeToo movement now, it’s the year of the woman, so I suspect that the producers might give serious consideration to having a woman host," Trebek said. "She’ll obviously be younger; she’ll have to be personable, bright, have a sense of humor. My recommendation is Betty White."
