Mayim Bialik Allegedly Wants $18 Million for Hosting ‘Jeopardy,’More Than Alex Trebek Was Paid. Show Source Says


Is it? Mayim BialikCo-hosting requires a large payout Jeopardy? One tabloid claims her requested salary exceeds Alex Trebek’s. Here’s the latest gossip about the popular game show.

Mayim Bialik Landing ‘Jeopardy’Hosting Gigs?

A few months back, the National Enquirer Mayim Bialik, as reported by Mayim, was the perfect person to do it. Jeopardy needed. And after giving the show a much-needed ratings boost, she’s going to need a “big bucks”Salary if NBC wants her there. “After all the drama surrounding Alex Trebek’s death and the search for a new host, the ratings were in freefall. Now thanks to Mayim, the numbers are the best they’ve been since April. She has basically saved the show — and she knows it,”Insider recipes

“With 5.4 million viewers tuning in, Mayim basically has the hosting job full-time if she wants it. Now all the producers have to do is agree on how much they’ll pay her.” And Bialik apparently is well-aware of how valuable she is to the show, even more than Trebek’s reported $18 million salary. “After the disastrous decision to hire and then fire Mike Richards, Mayim realized how valuable she is to the show,”The tipster is done. “Basically, she’s got producers by the balls.”

What’s Going On At ‘Jeopardy’?

While we couldn’t quite make heads or tails of this story at the time it was published, the last few months have given us a clearer perspective on the show. It’s true that Bialik was a welcome breath of fresh air after Mike Richards’ controversial exit, and the ratings reflected that. But judging from the latest whispers about the show, we definitely wouldn’t say that she has a full-time hosting gig “in the bag.”

The outlet completely forgot to mention that Bialik had been co-hosting with Jeopardy legend Ken Jennings. It was easy sailing for them both starting out, but Bialik has come under severe online criticism from some Jeopardy fans. It seems like a large portion of die-hard fans. Jeopardy fans prefer Bialik’s co-host Ken Jennings in the position. Numerous people have expressed dissatisfaction at Bialik’s hostship, and Bialik has seen the backlash.

“I think it’s been a big learning curve, but also a really humbling one. I feel like I weathered it to the best of my ability,” Bialik erzählt The Hollywood Reporter. “I’m not everybody’s cup of tea, and I totally get that. My goal is to blend into the podium as much as I can and have it not be about all of that other stuff.” So, while Bialik definitely has her supporters, it doesn’t look like she has much of a bargaining chip when it comes to her salary. And since the network still hasn’t announced who will host the next season of Jeopardy, we wouldn’t say she’s permanently filling Trebek’s shoes just yet.

More TV Drama from the Tabloids

However, it appears that the National Enquirer Realizing it was wrong with this report, it quickly retracted with a story on Bialik’s quitting Jeopardy. The outlet also published stories about TV stars demanding big pay raises. The outlet reported that James Corden got a $5 million raise for himself, without having to pay a dime for his staff. According to the magazine, Paula Deen, a star chef from California, demanded that the Food Network return her show. The Inquire isn’t as in tune with behind-the-scenes drama as it claims to be.
