‘Jeopardy!’ Trends on Twitter Over Debate About Hosts, Mayim Bialik’s Wardrobe

by Samantha Whidden

Long time running TV game show “Jeopardy!” is reportedly trending on Twitter this week over a debate about Mayim Bialik and the wardrobe that the game show host has.

Earlier this week, Mayim Bialik was called out for wearing the same burnt-orange blazer on an episode of “Jeopardy!” The game show host hilariously tweeted, “That’s right! I repeated a blazer! You caught me! And I’ll do it again!”

“Jeopardy!” host Mayim Bialik also shared a video of her reaction to those who criticized her look. “There’s a budget, people! I grew up with one bathroom till I was 15 and my brother was 19. We budget! I’m gonna wear it again. And I’ll wear it again!”

Twitter user, who seems interested in the “Jeopardy!” host and contestant’s fashion, One Eclectic Mom, did respond to Mayim Bialik. “MAYIM, NOBODY CRITICIZED YOU FOR THIS!!! Ken Jennings wore a certain purple tie 3x and I’m keeping track of that too. Stop trying to make ‘wardrobe controversy’ happen!”

Although some “Jeopardy!” enjoyed Mayim Bialik’s humor through the criticism, others weren’t a fan of her remarks. One Twitter user wrote, “The only person who really tracks ‘Jeopardy!’ Host fashion is One Eclectic Mom. And this feels like you’re talking s— on one of the best parts of the ‘Jeopardy!’ Fandom for no good reason.”

Another “Jeopardy!” fan also declared that they didn’t get the social media mob who is calling her Mayim Bialik’s removal from the game show. “Mayim is a fantastic replacement for Alex Trebek. She sounds great and is excellent at being both funny and serious. I hope she becomes permanent host.”

“Jeopardy!” Host Mayim Bialik Talks Hair and Makeup on the Game Show Set 

While speaking to E! News’ “Daily Pop” hosts Justin Sylvester and Loni Love on Wednesday (April 13th), “Jeopardy!” host Mayim Bialik spoke about her hair and makeup on the game show’s set. “Michael Anton’s in charge of the hair. And he’s like, ‘You do curls  on ‘Call Me Kat.’ He’s like, ‘We’re gonna blow it out.’ I was, like, ‘Fine I look like a different kind of librarian, great!”

Along with discussing how she managed to get the “Jeopardy!” gig, Mayim Bialik said her son had something to do with it. “My son was on social media and people were talking about guest hosts. My son was like, ‘Momma, they’re talking about you on social media. They’re saying you should guest host Jeopardy!.’ I’m like, ‘That’s not true.'”

Mayim Bialik then declares that the “Jeopardy!” gig is her dream job. “I learn every day. I get to meet new contestants every hour. It’s fun. And the knowledge that these contestants have, it’s just so much fun to watch. I’m entertained.”
