Not to mention that, barring some unusual circumstances (three way $0 tie or something else) the last Trebek winner will be in the unusual position of being ineligible for future games under the "any episode of J! hosted by Alex Trebek" rule and the "any episode of J! hosted by [new host]" rule. (Which reminds me, could Lori Drummond
be eligible to play again since she's the only contestant on regular J! since September 10, 1984, to appear on an episode not hosted by Alex Trebek?)

Dick Clark hosted game shows and musical entertainment type shows in tandem, and Seacrest seems to get compared to Dick CLark a lot. Or maybe Seacrest will be saved for the next Pyramid go round. However GSN is talking about a new version of Pyramid, and no way GSN nabs Seacrest to host that.
You just gave me an excellent idea, Zach; the next host of J! should obviously be ... Dick Clark! (Hologram version, of course)
