Mayim Bialik, a well-known actress, author, talk show host, and neuroscientist, will be the new host of Jeopardy! in July 2022. After being a guest host in Season 37, she was a co-host in Season 38, and she also ran the “Jeopardy! National College Championship” on ABC.
The American game show Jeopardy! was made by Merv Griffin. The show is a quiz competition that does things backward from how most quiz shows are set up.
Instead of being asked questions, contestants are given general knowledge clues in the form of answers. They then have to figure out who, what, where, or why the clue is about by putting each answer in the form of a question.
The original daytime version started on NBC on March 30, 1964, and ran until January 3, 1975. From September 1974 to September 1975, a syndicated version aired every week at night, and The All-New Jeopardy! ran on NBC from October 1978 to March 1979. The show, which is syndicated and made every day (currently by Sony Pictures Television), made its debut on September 10, 1984.
Mayim Bialik is best known for her role as Amy Farrah Fowler on “The Big Bang Theory,” a hit CBS comedy for which she won an award. Bialik is currently in the Fox show “Call Me Kat,” which she also produces and stars in.

Outside of TV, she just started a podcast called “Mayim Bialik’s Breakdown” which is about mental health. She also directed “As They Made Us,” her first full-length movie, which came out in theatres in 2022.
Bialik graduated from UCLA in 2000 with a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience and a minor in Hebrew and Jewish Studies. She then got her Ph.D. in Neuroscience also at UCLA in the fall of 2007.
Celebrity Jeopardy should have more difficult questions instead of easier questions. I want to see a charity owe Mayim Bialik money because Andy Richter didn’t know shit about 12th century Italian desk chair.
I assume if you have negative money left you pay the host cash?
