JEOPARDY! fans have praised host Ken Jennings as “natural”.
The feedback comes as viewers claimed that Mayim Bialik isn’t “made for the show”.
Jeopardy! fans have praised host Ken Jennings as ‘natural’
As former champion Ken returned to host this week’s episodes of Jeopardy!, fans rejoiced on social media.
One wrote: “Ah, the true host of Jeopardy is back. Ken is made for this job. I’m sorry but Mayim isn’t made for this how.
“No one hosts is better than the man who won so many games on it.”
Another agreed: “Hooray! The true host is back. Ken is the one.”
A third chimed in: “Can we all agree Ken Jennings is a natural and should be permanent host of Jeopardy!”
However, not all viewers were in agreement.
One wrote: “Can we all agree we’re sick of Jennings worship?”
A second raged: “The giant Ken Doll is back Boo Hiss.”
Last week, fans were begging for Mayim to be replaced by Ken permanently after she made on-air blunder.
As the episode aired, fans took to Twitter to express their dislike for host Mayim.
One viewer wrote: “Jeopardy! needs to make Ken Jennings the full-time host.
Another raged: “Get Mayim Bialik off the show! She’s losing viewers!”
“Not only do I miss Ken when he’s not there, but Mayim reminds me daily of how much better he is at the job.”
This May will mark one year since Mayim started filling in as a temporary host, after Alex Trebek’s death in 2020.
The Blossom actress announced that she and Ken will be finished hosting Jeopardy! in July 2022, when a yet-to-be-announced permanent host will take over.
Many loyal fans are pushing for Ken to be announced as the new face of the game show.
