In his pre-show interview for his stay as a guest presenter, Faber revealed that he had the best advice on hosting Jeopardy! came from the show’s own staff.
« Well, your great team here was really just trying to get me to be myself, » Faber said to Jeopardy! Producers. “You know, there aren’t that many opportunities in the game – because the game is the star – of showing a lot of yourself. And actually I just wanted to focus on the gameplay. But they told me to smile to have fun, which I also tried to loosen up a little. That was all great advice, of course, to be enthusiastic and also to support the participants. ”
Before he stepped onto the podium, Faber hosted a homemade game by Jeopardy! with friends to get your feet wet.
« A few of my friends came to be attendees to have me there, and then a few others just to listen and criticize, » he said. « In the end it was very helpful. »
Every innkeeper has the opportunity to choose a charity of their choice, to the Jeopardy! will donate an amount equal to the accumulated winnings of the participants for the week. Faber has selected the Robin Hood Foundation, New York’s largest poverty alleviation nonprofit, as his preferred charity.
« In New York there have always been a lot of people who have had a hard time, » said Faber. « So I wanted to try to concentrate on my hometown. »
