Are Game Show Hosts for Real?

Is it just my imagination, or are most game show hosts older white men? Alex Trebek, Pat Sajak, Drew Carey, the guy from Minute to Win It… except for Meredith Viera on “Who Wants to be a Millionaire”, are there any game show hosts that aren’t older white men? I can’t think of any black or Asian or Arab game show hosts in the US…

 

And why? Is it about who looks like a figure of authority? Do game show hosts need to exert any real amount of authority? Is it some outdated TV convention?
