won’t be exactly daily Double, but “Danger!” Decide that two hosts are better than one.
The producers of the beloved game show have decided to keep former “Big Bang Theory” star Mayim Bialik and hero Ken Jennings in their place as hosts of “Jeopardy” for the foreseeable future, with tasks split between the pair.
“I am writing today with exciting news that we have closed and signed deals with Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings to be the hosts of Jeopardy! Executive Producer Michael Davis announced in a statement Wednesday on the show’s website.” At Mayim and Ken, we have two distinct hosts at the start of their own peril! Host careers that connect with their unique fan bases, new fans, and traditional Jeopardy! view.”
As the new season kicks off in September, Jennings will host the Second Chance Tournament and Champions League, the announcement said.
Bialik, who is currently starring in FOX’s “Call Me Kat,” will host “Celebrity Jeopardy!” on ABC in prime time and will host the main show for a period of time beginning in January.
“The current plan is for her to host new tournaments in addition to Jeopardy! The announcement says the National College Championship and several weeks she can manage with her other prime-time commitment to Call Me Kat.” “We know you appreciate consistency, so we won’t constantly flip hosts. We’ll keep you posted on the hosting schedule.”
Davis added, “Mim and Ken are both extraordinarily talented and simply beautiful human beings. They support the staff and each other. They love and respect this television show organization. In return, the staff and I are honored to work alongside one another.”
