Mayim Bialik left Jeopardy! viewers with anxiety. They noticed a “concerning” detail about her leaked text messages. Bialik shared a private exchange on Instagram that has her fans feeling apprehensive. The 46-year-old actress is still hosting the quiz show for the fifth week in a row.
Ken Jennings announced that he was taking a break from the show. In early May, he warned fans that he could be out for “months.” Many fans preferred Jennings over Bialik since he won the most games of Jeopardy! in 2004. They just see him as a natural successor to the late Alex Trebek.
The Big Bang Theory star concerns fans
On Thursday, June 9, Mayim Bialik posted an Instagram screenshot of her private texts with her mom Beverly.
“Bev asking if the warriors won tonight (She’s getting over jet lag after a trip to Israel, hence the sleep comments),” Mayim Bialik captioned the post.
The former Blossom star wrote, “Is your sleep normal pretty much?” to which her mom responded, “Getting there today. Sorry for your loss.”
Mayim Bialik tried to liven up the mood with a conversation about basketball. Yet, the post didn’t win over fans. In fact, they found it “concerning” that Bialik had 28 unread text messages. Followers took to the comment section to remind her to read the rest of her texts.
- “You’ve got a lot of texts to reply to. #28.”
- “Ya know. I’m glad I’m not popular. The 28 notifications makes me anxious lol.”
- “The 28 unread messages on YOUR phone is giving me anxiety.”
- “Ummm ok.”
This isn’t the first time that Mayim Bialik had fans talking on Instagram. As TV Shows Ace previously reported, she went live on the wrong Instagram account. Bialik couldn’t keep all of her gigs straight. The awkward Instagram live had her apologizing to Jeopardy! fans who wanted relevant content.
Did Mayim Bialik leak Jeopardy! clues?
Viewers also noticed that she held papers in her hands in her makeup-free selfie on Instagram. She snapped the photo as she returned to the set of the show last month. Some eagle-eyed fans noticed that Mayim Bialik was holding the script for an un-aired episode. A Reddit thread titled: “Inadvertent game material leak?” had fans wondering if the former child star accidentally leaked the clues.
Meanwhile, other fans criticized Bialik’s hosting style. They wonder if she will ever pick up the pace of the show. They noticed the difficulty she has with the balancing act that is hosting Jeopardy! itself. That doesn’t even include all of the other gigs that Bialik has on her roster.
