For much of the last year, Ken Jennings has been the sole host of Jeopardy! This happened after the game show had hired Ken and Mayim Bialik to split the hosting duties. However, after a series of behind-the-scenes events, Ken took over as the sole host.

Now, Jeopardy! is finally making things official, at least publically.

Jeopardy! Finally Removed Mayim Bialik From Promotions

After Jeopardy! removed Mayim Bialik from her position as co-host, things got a little spicy. Mayim publically commented on it, and it was clear this was not a decision the show made in conjunction with its former star. However, Jeopardy! kept using Mayim in its promotions for the show.

That has finally ended and it seems that the game show has finally officially cut all ties with the former star. Mayim has finally been removed from the post-YouTube clips where she was with Ken Jennings, thanking fans for watching. Fans quickly took notice of this.

  • “New ending without Mayim and only Ken. I wondered when they would get around to changing it”
  • “New outro! Glad that they finally removed Mayim Bialik!”
  • “Yay! Finally”

With Mayim out of the promotions, fans can finally stop wondering if she would return for something like Pop Culture Jeopardy! or one of the other special games.

It seemed unlikely since Mayim spoke about her firing. Mayim supported the writers during the WGA strike, and it seems Jeopardy! was not happy that she refused to work during the strike. Mayim then pointed out her Primetime Emmy nomination for hosting the show and clarified that she wasn’t happy about leaving.

“Sony has informed me that I will no longer be hosting the syndicated version of Jeopardy!,” she wrote at the time. “For all of you who have supported me through this journey and to the fans, contestants, writers, staff of America’s favorite quiz show, thank you.”

Who Will Host Pop Culture Jeopardy!?

Mayim Bialik has been fan-cast in the role of the Pop Culture Jeopardy! host since the show was announced. However, with the recent change, fans can likely erase her name from the list of possibilities.

The biggest name on the list now is Katie Nolan, a former ESPN host, podcaster, and the runner-up on Celebrity Jeopardy! 2023. When asked about this on a recent episode of the What is… A Jeopardy! Podcast, Nolan said she couldn’t comment on it. She could say anything she wanted if she wasn’t up for the role. However, her non-response makes it sound like she is at least a possibility.

  1. The Pop Culture host should be LaVar. There are few bigger Pop Culture icons than Star Trek, and few bigger cast members than Burton. Plus, he deserved to be in the original mix…lol

  2. I hate that Miyam Bialik has been removed as a Jeopardy host. Big mistake by the network. I truly enjoyed her in that hosting role. I will now be less likely to watch Jeopardy because of her removal. Please reinstate Miyam as a host of Jeopardy immediately.
