Mayim Bialik is attempting to distance herself from the Jeopardy! host drama as much as possible. After Jeopardyown !’s former executive producer Mike Richards stepped down as host amid scandal, Bialik will share hosting duties with Ken Jennings until the end of the year, but she’s keeping her eyes on the prize — or the clues, as the case may be.
The Big Bang Theory alum talked about his firsthand experience with the game show’s hosting drama on Tuesday’s The Late Late Show With James Corden.
Since Alex Trebek’s death in November 2020, Jeopardy! has been looking for a permanent new host, bringing on a number of guest hosts throughout the year. Bialik quickly became a fan favourite during her two-week stint on the show.
Matt Amodio Passes the 30-Win Mark
Mayim Bialik of The Big Bang Theory addressed the recent Jeopardy! host drama on Tuesday’s episode of The Late Late Show with James Corden. “Three days in a row, I was the front page of CNN,” said Bialik, who will co-host the long-running CBS game show with Ken Jennings until the end of the year. “Who knew there was such a fuss over who hosts Jeopardy?” In the search for Alex Trebek’s replacement, Bialik was one of many guest hosts who stepped up to the plate. In August, it was revealed that she would host primetime specials and spin-offs, with Mike Richards, the show’s executive producer, overseeing the daily syndicated format. When insensitive remarks made by Richards toward women and others were revealed, it sparked a firestorm of controversy. Richards eventually stepped down despite having taped a week’s worth of episodes.
‘Jeopardy!’ Keep a Secret
Mayim Bialik has had to hide the fact that she never met Amy Schneider, whose “Jeopardy!” winning record of 40 games came to an end last week.
That’s because during Schneider’s two-month run, Ken Jennings, with whom Bialik is sharing co-hosting responsibilities on the Sony quiz show, was the host. Due to the time difference between taping and airing the show, Bialik, who also acts on Fox’s “Call Me Kat,” had to keep her co-stars under wraps the entire time.
“I couldn’t tell anyone I hadn’t met Amy,” Bialik said in an interview with The Wrap on Monday to promote the primetime “Jeopardy! National College Championship” special she is presenting for ABC. “Like, it was finally Monday night [last week], and I was allowed to post in support of her, and I was pleased that it was finally public, because I didn’t have to go back to work and be like, ‘I can’t say anything.'”
Description Of My Existence.”
Schneider’s 40-game streak occurred just three months after Matt Amodio won 38 games in a row to briefly overtake Jennings, who had won 74 games in a row in 2004. Her earnings also place her fourth all-time in regular season cash winnings, after Amodio, James Holzhauer, and Jennings.
Exchange Hosting Duties On “Jeopardy!”
Until the end of the season, which is expected to be sometime in the summer. Then Sony will try again to name a permanent replacement for Alex Trebek, who died in 2020. Mike Richards held the position for one day of tape before resigning in the midst of previous misogynistic remarks being made public.

The winner is one of those savvy contestants who has won 30 games in a row. This brings him within two wins of tying James Holzhauer for the most consecutive victories, though he still has a long way to go to catch Ken Jennings’ 79 victories.

“Wow, 30 wins in a row. Whatever happens next, I know #Jeopardy has been a once-in-a-lifetime ride,” Amodio tweeted. “We appreciate your sticking with us through the ups and downs!”
When Richards’ offensive remarks against women and others became public, it sparked a backlash. Richards eventually stepped away from both his hosting and producing roles, despite having already taped a week’s worth of shows.
“I mean, I’m just trying to figure out what’s going on.” “Just let me read the clues,” Bialik said to Corden, implying that the host shouldn’t be the show’s emphasis. “The issue about Jeopardy! is that we spend our entire lives trying to be seen, and this job is like — people should think as little as possible about me.” It’s my responsibility to be the host, just like it’s my job to read the clues.” Current Jeopardy: Knowledgeable Contestants!

In a new interview, Mayim Bialik reacts to the ‘Jeopardy!’ drama.
“Three days in a row, I was the CNN front page,” Bialik remarked. “Who knew there was such a fuss about who hosts Jeopardy!?” Richards was designated the regular host in August, but he stepped down barely a week later after inflammatory statements from a previous podcast surfaced. He was fired as executive producer of Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune a few days later, and Bialik and Jennings were chosen interim hosts.
