'Jeopardy!' EP Weighs In On Who Might Be The Permanent Host Of Trivia Show


Fans have voiced support equally for both Ken Jennings and Mayim Bialik who are sharing the role at the moment.

About that, Michael says that “the stars of our show and Mayim [Bialik] and Ken [Jennings] have done incredible job hosting and [we] hope to have a hosting announcement very, very soon.”

He went on, saying that “with all of our plans for Jeopardy! — which is more Jeopardy!, not less, more versions —we’re going to need multiple hosts to represent the entire audience, to represent the entire country, in order to take this franchise forward.”

Michael also shared his gratitude for the program winning, following the scandal over Mike Richards.

“The scandal was, as we call it at ‘Jeopardy!,’ ‘the awkward months,’” he said. “But it showed the power of our audience and how passionately our fans care about the program, which is just so important. What’s happened over the course of the season — Matt Amodio, and Amy Schneider and Mattea [Roach] and Ryan [Long] — really made us just remember how incredible the game is.”
