It is official, Jeopardy! has announced who the new host will be. Actually, it will be hosts–yes, two permanent hosts.
They are sticking with Mike Richards, the Executive Producer of the show and they are adding actress Mayim Bialik.
Mike Richards will handle the daily duties of the syndicated show while Mayim will handle primetime and spin-off specials of Jeopardy!
Bialik wrote on Twitter, “IT’S TRUE!!! Been waiting a long time to tell you all. Really really honored and astounded and excited for this – it’s beyond anything I ever imagined could happen.”
What do you think of the choice or hosts?

There's a petition for Levar Burton to be the new host of Jeopardy. He has the TV and production experience, the passion for education, that Reading Rainbow resume alone. It's a no brainer.#morningjoe #LevarBurton pic.twitter.com/Ti3BvesDeF— ClockOutWars (@clockoutwars) April 6, 2021

Levar Burton shouldn't have to petition to host Jeopardy. The concept frankly sort of hurts my heart. It should just happen. They won't find anyone better.— Leslie Lazlo Cravensworth (@LkjonesSOC) April 6, 2021
