Mayim Bialik Reveals Her Biggest ‘Jeopardy!’ Mayim Bialik Reveals Her Biggest ‘Jeopardy!’


Jeopardy! Mayim Bialik, the host of Jeopardy!, is not afraid to take criticism or vitriol online. According to her recent appearance on James Corden hosts the Late Late ShowHer biggest critic on Wednesday seemed to be her own family.

Bialik noted previously that some viewers were harsh about her style and fashion choices. Her mother, it turns out is the most critical of the dress choices. She has direct access for complaints.

“She will send me screenshots of every episode in case I forgot what I was wearing in that particular episode,”Bialik gave details about the show. “I’ll get a little report like, ‘I really liked this blazer, not so crazy about this top.'”

She quickly points out that her mother is slow with taking screenshots. However, she is often caught in the most embarrassing moment. “In the middle of it, and I would just think, like, ‘She’s got a whole half-hour – find a better screenshot,'”She laughed.

Bialyk is very aware of her position in Jeopardy! Fans, at least vocal ones. Comparisons to Ken Jennings, another host, are just the latest chapter of the host hunt that began after Alex Trebek’s tragic death. Although Bialyk didn’t deserve the hatred, it was inevitable due to the controversy and search that followed.

“I’m female, and as much as men and women can and should do the same things, women are perceived differently,”Bialik spoke. “I really try to be a neutral presence as much as possible so that it is not an issue…I get to be myself. I make a lot of stupid jokes. Ken and I both want to highlight our contestants, make them feel comfortable, and make them feel good. The way he says things, I’m assuming he probably knows all those things. For me, I get to read them like, ‘Wow, this is amazing.'”

This doesn’t mean that everything runs smoothly. “I have two red buttons, but they removed one. I accidentally hit the wrong one, so they took it away. They left my other emergency button in place. So I have a defunct emergency button,”Bialik gave an explanation, giving a glimpse into life behind the podium. Bialik also noted that Jeopardy is a fun game! language, “jeopardese”This can be tricky. “Not saying the same thing every time something is right, having each commercial break sound a little bit different, those are all challenges.”
