Jeopardy! host Mayim Bialik is having major beef with viewers once again. They’re bothered by her latest actions. The fill-in host has already caused controversy for the way she multitasks during the show. Fans don’t think Bialik can handle how the game is played.
As TV Shows Ace previously reported, fans are looking for her to get canceled. They didn’t like it when she lost her cool on the contestants last week. The calls for her firing continue to grow on social media. Find out why fans are criticizing the actress once again.
Jeopardy! fans notice a “disappointing” change
In a recent episode, Jeopardy! fans noticed a “disappointing” change in the beloved game show. They’re already annoyed with some of the other changes that Mayim Bialik made. The actress took over as full-time host of the show when Ken Jennings went on an extended hiatus. He’s expected to return by July.
Once again, Jeopardy! fans are slamming Bialik for not slowing down the pace of the game. They noticed that she struggles to keep up with the production. Viewers noticed that the Big Bang Theory actress is slow when revealing the answers to the contestants. She is also behind when she interacts with them during the Q&A portion.
It was apparent during Thursday’s episode of Jeopardy! Some of the viewers took to Twitter to tell Mayim Bialik to move it along. They realized that she was slow with her responses. This is the one thing that fans can’t stand about the former Blossom star.
Bialik takes long pauses so she can get direction from the producers. She doesn’t want to make any major mistakes. The actress is just trying to be extra cautious. However, fans think it slows down the pace of the game.
- “Oh my goodness with these long pauses from @missmayim lord have mercy!!”
- “Contestant answers………….. Mayim: that is correct.”
- “I know I keep saying it but Mayim Bialik is not a good host of #Jeopardy. She’s slow and consistently leaves clues on the board and she has no charisma!”
Others have called for the show to “fire” the Hollywood star. Mayim Bialik was one of the many celebrities who stepped in as a guest host. Now it’s just done to two: Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings.
Calling for Mayim Bialik’s firing
The cries for her firing have gotten louder on social media. Longtime Jeopardy! viewers want Mayim Bialik fired for her many mistakes. Many assumed that Jennings would’ve ended up with the full-time position. Since the two ended up sharing hosting duties, some thought she should get fired.
- “Why is Mayim Bialik hosting Jeopardy again?”
- “Please, Jeopardy, I beg of you: name Ken Jennings as host immediately and stop this Mayim Bialik force.”
- “Mayim Bialik has been hosting Jeopardy on and off for about a year and still sucks at hosting. Remarkable stuff.”
