Jeopardy! viewers want Mayim Bialik canceled immediately. They slammed her for her “snippy” behavior. Viewers are now rooting for Minneapolis-based meteorologist Eric Ahasic, who is on his fifth consecutive win with $133,000 total. However, Bialik made a rude comment.
The 46-year-old actress is hosting Jeopardy! for the fifth week in a row. Ken Jennings is said to make his return by July 2022. The permanent hosting position is still available and will be announced by the end of Season 38. Earlier this week, fans said goodbye to Ryan Long, who lost after 16 wins.
The Philadelphia-based rideshare driver was one-upped by Eric. The chipper Minnesota native has become a hit with fans. He won the latest episode with $133,000 total and 31 correct responses. However, Mayim Bialik lost control of her normally calm demeanor.
Mayim Bialik loses her cool
During the regular Jeopardy! round, a clue from the category “US Dates” read, “On this date in 1921 an unknown soldier was buried at Arlington National Cemetary.” Eric was already feeling good about his hot streak. He buzzed in so quickly that Bialik was off her game. He responded, “What is Memorial Day?”
The former Blossom actress said, “Looking for the date. No.” She hinted for Eric to be more specific, but suggested that he was on the right track. Eric then asked, “What is May 31st?” Bialik lost her cool and said, “No! No!”
The other two players awkwardly watched from their podiums. Siobhan then buzzed in and said, “What is May 31st?” The contestant repeated Eric’s response thinking that’s what the actress was looking for. Bialik grew impatient with the contestants and said, “No” once again.
All three contestants were left stumped by the clue. The former child star said, “What is November 11th.” Jeopardy! fans were in shock over what happened. They feel that Bialik is to blame for the massive blunder.
Jeopardy! fans want Bialik fired
The viewers often tweet about Jeopardy! when it airs in their timezone. Most were flabbergasted over what happened during that round. They blame Mayim Bialik for the snafu and want her canceled. Others didn’t her attitude towards Eric, who became the new fan favorite.
- “Mayim seems a tad snippy tonight.”
- “I guess she let him know she wanted the date, not the holiday name. He won’t make the mistake again.”
- “Mayim should be canceled.”
- “Mayim Bialik ~ 6/10/2022 ~ ice cold.”
- “BRING BACK KEN JENNINGS. MAYIM BIALIK IS AWFUL & she hesitates because she doesn’t know the answers.”
Eric bounced back from that awkward round. He added $28,000 to his winnings and now qualifies for the Tournament of Champions since he won all week long.
