  1. Those distressing thoughts might go away if she bows out gracefully and lets Ken host the main show, which is what the vast majority of fans have asked.

  2. I find her refreshing someone with a personality, and she interacts well with the contestants. On the other hand, I find Ken Jennings, condescending and smug. I only watch when she’s hosting. This may be an opinion not very popular, but it’s mine.

  3. I immediately found
    Mayim’s pauses annoying the first time I saw her hosting. Aside from that, I ended up
    really liking her and her engaging personality.

    Maybe, we as the audience, or the producers can coach her so she stops with the pausing. I
    don’t like the way fans seem
    pounce on her defect. Be kinder, people!

    But, if I were to choose whom I prefer as the host, it would be Ken.
