New Jeopardy! Host Mike Richards Issues New Apology Over Rude Podcast Comments

New Jeopardy! host Mike Richards is issuing an additional apology after he was overheard saying a number of comments about appearances in a resurfaced podcast.

According to The Ringer, Mike had been on a Price Is Right-themed podcast called The Randumb Show from 2013 to 2014, and was heard making statements about women in one-piece swimsuits and also make some rude comments about big noses: “Ixnay on the ose-nay… She’s not an ew-Jay”.

After the comments surfaced, the podcast was pulled offline.

“It is humbling to confront a terribly embarrassing moment of misjudgment, thoughtlessness, and insensitivity from nearly a decade ago. Looking back now, there is no excuse, of course, for the comments I made on this podcast and I am deeply sorry,” Mike shared in his apology, via TV Line.

He continued, “The podcast was intended to be a series of irreverent conversations between longtime friends who had a history of joking around. Even with the passage of time, it’s more than clear that my attempts to be funny and provocative were not acceptable, and I have removed the episodes.”

Mike added that “my responsibilities today as a father, husband, and a public personality who speaks to many people through my role on television means I have substantial and serious obligations as a role model, and I intend to live up to them.”

Just recently, Mike also issued a statement on his past lawsuit with The Price is Right. Read it here…
