Jeopardy! fans say there's a 'clear winner' between Ken Jennings & Mayim Bialik as one is the 'WORST host' of all time | The Sun

JEOPARDY! fans believe there is a clear winner between hosts Ken Jennings and Mayim Bialik.

Viewers expressed their opinions after it was announced that two will be sharing hosting duties long term.


As today's episode of Jeopardy! aired, fans took to Twitter to share their opinions of both Ken, 48, and Mayim, 46.

Many viewers seem to favor former champ Ken, who is hosting this week.

One wrote: "I'm happy Ken is back, but why the hell is Mayim staying? She's easily the worst game show host of all time."

"Bummed about Jeopardy! continuing to have two hosts, because there is clearly a superior candidate," raged another, who begged for Ken to also host the upcoming Tournament of Champions.

A third posted: "I was so happy when Ken was finally back. This is the worst timeline. Get Mayim off this show."

AND THEN THERE WERE TWO

Fans learned earlier today that both hosts are reportedly in negotiations to sign long-term contracts with the syndicated program.

Both former contestant Ken and The Big Bang Theory star Mayim first stepped into the job after legendary host Alex Trebek passed away in 2020.

Jeopardy! had first tried out a fleet of celebrity guest hosts including the now disgraced Mike Richards.

But the show's ratings nearly doubled to 9.7 million viewers when Ken made his first appearance in January 2021.

When Mayim took over later that October, the headcount dropped to 5.9 million viewers during a college championship, and she hasn't beat Ken's ratings since.

However, as reported by Variety, Mayim will also continue to host special primetime editions of the show, including "Celebrity Jeopardy!" which is coming soon.

KEN YOU NOT?

According to the outlet's sources, the people behind Jeopardy! are eager to boost the different versions of the program, so more than one host will be needed. 

Besides her role on the Alex Trebek stage, Mayim also stars in her own sitcom, Call Me Kat.

However, the news of her continuing presence on Jeopardy! has been met with an upset from some fans.

Many die-hards have been calling for Ken to take over all of the hosting gigs.

From telltale ratings to "cryptic hints," fans had been collecting clues that the former champion would be chosen over the actress.

Some viewers have been unhappy with Mayim's hosting style, regularly slamming her on-air for errors and mishaps during the past eight weeks.

Following a long hiatus, Ken is now hosting again, and he'll stay on fans' screens until season 38 wraps up on July 29.
