Jeopardy! host Mayim Bialik shared her true identity. She wants the viewers to stop judging her. Bialik will take over the podium for the next few months. Earlier this month, Ken Jennings announced that he was taking a step back from his hosting duties.
But, he promises to return before the end of the season. Bialik will be spending more time on television. With that comes criticism from viewers of the beloved quiz show. She’s already received criticism for her hosting style.

Mayim Bialik fights back at criticism over her wardrobe choices
In a new interview, Mayim Bialik talked about her hosting duties on Jeopardy! She called the coveted position a “nerd’s dream.” In August 2021, The Big Bang Theory star was the latest co-host of the syndicated show along with champ Ken Jennings. The gifted neuroscientist talked candidly about her love for the show.
“It’s incredible to be surrounded by the writers and researchers who work to create Jeopardy!” Mayim Bialik revealed to The Post at the Fox Upfront in New York. “And, yes, to work with contestants and people who know a tremendous, vast variety of information, it’s incredible.”
However, she’s received criticism over her wardrobe. The former child star doesn’t like all the focus on her looks, which comes with the territory when you work on television. Bialik wishes she didn’t have to dress up. She would like to wear a suit as most men do.
“The fact is we don’t live in a culture when I can wear a gray suit and then a blue suit, but maybe next year we’ll see,” Mayim Bialik explained. “I don’t think anyone should think about it so much, especially me.”
The 46-year-old revealed herself to be “both a geek and a nerd.” She wants to express those parts of herself in her day-to-day life, especially during her time on Jeopardy! The Blossom star said that she doesn’t normally look like she does on the game show. She usually looks “like a normal nerd walking around the street.”
Will she become the new permanent host of Jeopardy?
Mayim Bialik may have left a big clue in the interview. She teased that she may share new looks next year. This comes amidst the rumors that Bialik will become the new permanent host of Jeopardy! Back in March, Bialik told ET that she’d “love” to host the show full-time.
She hopes that production will make a decision soon. Bialik received mixed reviews for her time behind the podium. Jeopardy! fans have shared their thoughts on whether she brings a fresh perspective to the show. There are also viewers who would prefer to see Jennings in the role previously made famous by the late Alex Trebek.
