‘Jeopardy!’ Host Mayim Bialik Says ‘No Go’ To Expensive Mistake


Jeopardy! host Mayim Bialik says “no go” to an expensive mistake. This comes after recent champ Daniel Nguyen made an “offensive” mistake in his response. The fans are outspoken and they’re not applauding the contestant. On the Wednesday, May 11 episode, fans noted how “painful” it was to witness Nguyen’s “disrespectful” response.

The 46-year-old host has taken over the podium this week and for the next few months. Earlier this month, Ken Jennings announced that he was taking a break from his hosting duties. But, he will return to the show before the end of the season. Most fans aren’t happy with Bialik and how she changed the pace of the show.

However, they’re even more upset with a controversial contestant.

What did Jeopardy! contestant Daniel Nguyen do?

Mayim Bialik will have to pick up the pace with all the work she’s doing. Her schedule is going to be busy this summer. Last night’s episode was shocked by Danie Nguyen’s answer to a clue. The California native was the first to buzz during the Jeopardy! round.

He answered a clue about the category “From Queens.” The correct response for the $800 clue was hip-hop artist 50 Cent, who performed at the Super Bowl in February 2022. Nguyen said, “Who is 50 Cents?” He got the rapper’s name wrong by calling him “Cents” instead of “Cent.”

It’s not as bad as Lala Kent’s ex-fiance Randall Emmett, who was in a famous feud with 50 Cent on social media. He fired back at him in his Instagram Story, calling him “fofty cent.” Yet, Nguyen’s response was embarrassing and just costly. Just not $1 million dollars costly. Even Jeopardy! fans on Twitter cringed.

Thankfully, Mayim Bialik didn’t accept Nguyen’s response since he pronounced it wrong. The Big Bang Theory star told him “no go” on the expensive mistake he made. Fans agreed with Bialik’s decision.

  • “Good call on not taking ’50 Cents.'”
  • “50 Cents???”
  • “Mans just lost $800 on jeopardy bc he called him ’50 Cents’ … You hate to see it.”
  • “That’s a level of disrespect that I just can’t abide [by].”
  • “What an odd final Jeopardy.”

Other fans found Nguyen’s response “offensive.” They couldn’t understand how he could get this simple mistake wrong. 50 Cent is known for his hit songs like “In Da Club” and “Candy Shop.” Most people are familiar with the artist, even if they’re not a huge fan of his.

Fans don’t approve of Mayim Bialik

Meanwhile, other fans don’t approve of Mayim Bialik’s hosting abilities. Some of them demanded Ken Jennings return to the show. However, he can’t do that since he is currently on his break. The episodes are filming weeks out.

  • “KEN PLEASE COME BACK ASAP the other ‘host’ makes idiotic remarks.”
  • “So again, Mayim provides the rest of the answer instead of asking ‘be more specific!’ He says 409 and she adds, ‘formal.’ Seriously???”
  • Watching that episode makes me miss Mattea. That was painful. Mayim answered most of the questions.”

Former Jeopardy! champ Mattea Roach revealed who she likes more as the permanent host. She agrees with the majority that Jennings is the right fit. Meanwhile, fans have been mixed on both hosts. Some love Mayim Bialik’s hosting style, while others love that Jennings sticks to tradition.
