Actress Mayim Bialik will temporarily guest host the quiz show Jeopardy! after the new permanent host, Mike Richards stepped down after terrible past comments towards women, Jewish people, and discrimination allegations surfaced. Bialik was also named a host for the show during special presentations and “Primetime Jeopardy!”

Social Media has pushed for “Reading Rainbow” host LeVar Burton to get the job. Stars such as Green Bay Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers and former contestant Ken Jennings were guest hosts. Trebek himself named CNN Correspondent Laura Coates and L.A. Kings hockey announcer Alex Faust as his choice for a possible replacement before his passing.

Either way, this is a bad look for the quiz show. However, I think that Bialik would be great in the big chair!
