Mayim Bialik, along with Mike Richards come on board the crew of ‘Jeopardy!’. This marks a major event in this long-standing game show. From the last host, Alex Trebek, who passed away some time ago, these two stars are set to take over the part of hosting.
Mayim Bialik, famed for her acting in “The Big Bang Theory”, and Mike Richards, the executive producer of the show, are going to be the ones hosting the spinoff specials and the primetime.
Trebek was the host of the show for 36 long years, and hosted it for 8,200 episodes, before he finally succumbed to his battle with cancer, and passed away untimely in the November of 2020.
Mayim Bialik, presently 45 years of age would be hosting a new series of spinoffs. Richards would be hosting the daily syndication. Ravi Ahuja, the chairman of the corporate development and the studios of Sony Pictures was thrilled to start the upcoming season with Mike on the daily show and Mayim Bialik on the newer version of ‘Jeopardy!’.
Mayim Bialik On Hosting ‘Jeopardy!’
Mayim Bialik could not stop being thrilled about joining the family of ‘Jeopardy!’. It all started when her child, 15 years of age read out a rumor from an Instagram post about Mayim Bialik hosting the shoe as a guest. The rumor quickly became a reality and has become one of the most surreal and exciting opportunities to knock on the actor’s door. She expressed being grateful to be able to work along with Mike Richards.
Among the new programs, Bialik is set to be hosting the National College Championship in Jeopardy which is scheduled to be aired next year on the ABC network. While Richards expressed the opportunity to be an honor for him, he also mentioned it was never a plan to be the host of a show this big in magnitude.
