Mayim has her own fans who aren’t thrilled she is sharing duties with Jennings. One said, “Mayim is way better… Ken isn’t a public speaker let alone a TV host. Trivia and Twitter nerds are the only Jeopardy viewers that prefer Ken…” Another wrote, “I think she’s funny & cute & I love when she walks out! I love to look at her outfits and her hair I think she’s amazing!! And I don’t understand all the hate for her!!”
Not everyone is upset though. One viewer is team Mayim and Team Ken: “This is a winning hosting team that Alex Trebek would be so proud of.”
When the new season of Jeopardy premieres next month, Ken Jennings will be hosting. He’ll continue hosting through the end of the year. In January, Mayim will be back as host.
Jeopardy is an iconic show, and I think the most important thing is that it is still on the air. It could have easily gone away with Alex Trebek. Our grandparents watched it, our parents watched it, and WE watch it. Can we just be grateful about this one simple thing, and stop being so petty? #firstworldproblems
