Viewers think Mayim Bialik is “unfit” to host Jeopardy! They have to get used to her for now since she is taking over for the next few months. Earlier this month, Ken Jennings announced that he was handing the keys back to The Big Bang actress. Most fans aren’t happy to see more of Bialik on their beloved game show.
They accused her of changing the pace of the show. Now, they think she’s too snippy at the contestants. Viewers have shared more about their distaste for Bialik’s hosting abilities. Read on to learn more.
Jeopardy! fans unhappy without Ken Jennings
The Jeopardy! fans have spoken and they’re unhappy with Mayim Bialik. They blasted the Blossom star and claimed she was “unfit” to host the quiz show. Viewers fear that she is changing up the show. This comes after Bialik allowed a “technically incorrect” response, according to the viewers.
They’re used to how the show was run by the late Alex Trebeck. They feel that Jennings should be the permanent replacement since the one-time champ sticks to the show’s tradition. Mayim Bialik took to the podium this week. Ken Jennings is on a three-month hiatus and will return before the end of the season.
It’s likely that Jennings will take over the position of permanent host. The show will make an announcement by the end of Season 38 in July. That could be the reason why Jennings is returning by that time. If the rumors are true, he could become the permanent host of Jeopardy!
In the meantime, fans have been watching Bialik host the show. After the Friday, May 13 episode, they think she’s playing the game incorrectly. Some remarked it was “painful” to watch her this week. During a regular round, the category was about the album, Red (Taylor’s Version).
While it had nothing to do with Taylor Swift or her re-releases, it still had fans seeing red. The clue read, “Taylor Momsen played Cindy Lou Who in this 2000 film that’s probably watched in December.”
Contestant Marie Shapiro responded, “What is The Grinch?” Mayim Bialik said her answer was correct. Jeopardy! fans stormed social media to share their thoughts. They think Bialik’s changing up the rules of the show.
Mayim Bialik made a big boo-boo?
Fans are appalled by Mayim Bialik’s decision. They don’t understand why she “gave” that contestant the $400 question despite her “vague” answer. Especially after a contestant’s costly mistake earlier this week. They think Bialik should’ve asked Shapiro to “be more specific” with the title of the live-action holiday movie.
“Um, it’s definitely Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas. #jeopardy y’all wrong,” one fan noted.
Others couldn’t believe Bialik accepted a partial answer. Some are boycotting the show while others are begging Jennings to come back. If the rumors are true, their wish could come true. They just have to wait a few months to find out.
