During Thursday’s episode of Jeopardy! viewers again slammed the former Big Bang Theory star for being slow with her responses.
Many alleged that she was taking gratuitously long pauses, which bothered many.
Another wrote: “Contestant answers…………. Mayim: that is correct.”
A third Jeopardy! viewer tweeted: “I know I keep saying it but Mayim Bialik is not a good host of #Jeopardy She’s slow and consistently leaves clues on the board and she has no charisma!”
The comments come amid calls from fans to “fire” her, as many have been displeased with the star’s abilities.
Mayim has been serving as Jeopardy’s host for less than a year.
She was among the many stars who stepped in to guest host.
Dedicated viewers have long called for her firing.
Many thought Ken Jennings, who appeared on Jeopardy! in the past, should be the show’s host.
Back when the actress and Ken were still sharing hosting duties, viewers thought Mayim should get the boot.
In March, one outraged fan wrote: “Why is Mayim Bialik hosting Jeopardy again?
“She is not funny, she has more money than most TV personalities, she endorses a terrible product and should concentrate on other things rather than hosting Jeopardy which she is terrible at. Please bring back Ken Jennings!”
A second agreed: “Please, Jeopardy, I beg of you: name Ken Jennings as host immediately and stop this Mayim Bialik farce.
A third shared: “Mayim Bialik has been hosting Jeopardy on and off for about a year at this point and still sucks at hosting. Remarkable stuff.”
Mayim rose to fame on The Big Bang Theory with her role as Amy Farrah.
A former neuroscientist, she is also associated with “brain health supplement”, Neuriva.
Both Mayim and Ken were selected as longtime Jeopardy host Alex Trebek’s predecessors.
Alex died in November 2020 of stage four pancreatic cancer.
They stepped up to the joint role following a brief stint from Mike Richards.
Jeopardy! icon Alex had been behind the game show’s podium since 1984.
Fans were hopeful that Ken would be named the lone host of Jeopardy.
One fan wrote on Twitter: “Ken Jennings is by far the best host! Please keep him and leave Mayim Bialik for some other show.”
Another agreed: “Don’t you think it’s time to name Ken Jennings as the permanent host? Bialik has overstayed her welcome.”
