Jeopardy! co-hosts Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings appeared together in the season premiere of Bialik’s show Call Me Kat. During the scene, Jennings played himself. It seemed like Bialik was blatantly throwing shade at Jennings and possibly even flirting at one point. Keep reading to see some of the things she said.
Mayim Bialik Calls Her Jeopardy! Co-Host A ‘Minor Celebrity’
Season 3 Episode 1 of Bialik’s Call Me Kat premiered on September 29. It showed Mayim Bialik, the focal point of the program, on a plane after traveling around the world. As people get onto the plane, Ken Jennings settles into the seat next to her. They recently discussed his appearance on an episode of Inside Jeopardy!
When Mayim realizes who she is sitting next to she said, “Oh wow, I will take ‘minor celebrities’ for 200. Get it Ken? it’s a Jeopardy! Joke.” Ken provided a quick rebuttal by saying, “What is: Not the first time I’ve heard it.”
Both of the Jeopardy! hosts continued this playful banter back and forth. Mayim mentions that Ken is her favorite host. Breaking the fourth wall, she turned to the camera and asked, “I mean, what else am I gonna say?”
It seemed like Mayim was throwing around a little shade with some of her remarks. Then she picked on him for knowing just about everything. “Did you know Madagascar is the original home of the Lemur?” she questioned him.
Ken was a good sport about it though. He chuckled and said yes, he was aware of that fact, “Of course, I kind of know everything,” he concluded. After they both poke a little fun at each other, Mayim seems to take on a different, more flirty tone.
Mayim Gets Flirty With Ken Jennings, Hints At Future
Following their exchange, Jennings flags down a flight attendant and asks for tequila. His Jeopardy! co-host makes another jab saying that he was going for “potent potables,” a nod to the SNL skit based on Jeopardy! Rather than continue to listen, Ken gets up to move seats.
It is then that Bialik starts to make flirty comments toward Jennings. She says something about the chemistry between them and how she plans to “make my move in baggage claim!”

When talking to Extra about the series’ debut episode, Bialik hinted that she may develop a crush on Jennings. Jeopardy! fans are here for it too. One person tweeted, “KEN JENNINGS ON CALL ME KAT, THAT’S SO CUTE.” It isn’t yet clear whether he will make regular appearances on the show or not.
The next episode of Call Me Kat will air on Thursday at 9:30 p.m. EST on Fox.
