If they didn't pay Trebek so much it would be even easier. I'm happy to take the gig, and I'll do it for 1/4 of his salary.
IMO, not this. Trebek is critical to the show's success and has won 5 Emmy Awards for a reason.

I can easily understand paying Trebek $10 million per year. I can't easily understand paying Vanna White $10 million per year to flip letters.
