2013 Daytime Emmy Predictions: Best Lifestyle/Travel Host and Game Show Host

Best Lifestyle/Travel Host
Will Win/Should Win - Jack Hanna "Jack Hanna's Into the Wild"

Could Win - Paige Davis "Home Made Simple", Leeza Gibbons "My Generation"

Commentary - I'm sorry but in this case, the rest of these so-called hosts just pail in comparison to what Jack Hanna does on a weekly basis. He is out in the wild, in thrilling enviroment, educating kids about nature. It's incredibly cool. Plus, this show has already won two Emmys when it was nominated for Children's Series, and none of the other contenders have the name recognition or appeal that Hanna has, due to his years on Daytime television (well, Somers, but I honestly don't think that is going to happen).
Best Game Show Host
Will Win/Should Win - Alex Trebek "Jeopardy!"

Could Win - Ben Bailey "Cash Cab", Steve Harvey "Family Feud", Wayne Brady "Let's Make a Deal"

Commentary - This category seems to always be a toss up, and a surprise, but at least I can safe safetly that I do not think Bill Eichner will win. But the other four are all recognizable, either from their respective shows or from general popularity, and all four are distinct possibilties. But I think that as Alex Trebek's career on Jeopardy quickly comes to a close that voters will want to reward him again, before they can't reward him anymore. Plus, he is a five-time winner in this category, and remains a popular and engaging host.
