Ken Jennings, the host of the game show "Jeopardy!", was surprised when he found out his co-host, Mayim Bialik, wouldn't be hosting the show with him anymore.
Jennings said he really liked working with Mayim and is going to miss her. Ken mentioned he doesn't know why she's not hosting anymore, but he's just happy to be a part of "Jeopardy!".
After Alex Trebek, the famous host of "Jeopardy!" passed away in 2020, the people running the show were in a hurry to find someone new to host. They ended up choosing Mayim Bialik, who is an actress known for her roles in TV shows like "Blossom" and "The Big Bang Theory", and Ken Jennings, who became famous for winning a lot of money on "Jeopardy!" before becoming a host. They started hosting together in 2021.
But on December 15, the company that makes "Jeopardy!", Sony, said they want only one host from now on, and that will be Ken Jennings.
Mayim Bialik, who is 48 years old, wrote on social media that she won't be hosting the regular "Jeopardy!" show anymore. She said she feels very proud and thankful for being a part of the "Jeopardy!" team.
Sony also released a statement saying they are thankful to Mayim for everything she did on "Jeopardy!" and explained that they chose to have only one host, Ken Jennings, to make things simpler for the people who watch the show.
Mayim had already taken a break from hosting "Jeopardy!" because of a strike in the entertainment industry. Since the new season of "Jeopardy!" started in September, Ken Jennings has been the only host.
