Taking to the Reddit thread Jeopardy, one fan started the rumor that Mayim will get at least 10 more hosted episodes this season.
They pointed to the clue that Mayim recently tweeted a video, which showed her filming on the Alex Trebek Stage at Sony Pictures Studios
The fan then mused: “Also, the season finale of Call Me Kat is scheduled for May 5, so it’s likely that filming has wrapped for that show.”
Mayim plays the lead role on the Fox sitcom, which is currently airing its second season.
After the Big Bang Theory alum revealed that she is hosting Jeopardy! until May 6th, this led the Redditor to believe that she’d be the one “reading the cards” for the final 40 episodes of the season.
Another fan then predicted: “Possibility that Mayim will host Second Chance Tournament?”
The Second Chance Tournament will see the show give contestants who lost another shot at Jeopardy! glory.
It will be the first contest of its kind in Jeopardy!’s 58-year-long history.
Although a date for the episode is yet to be revealed, it will take place “right before” the show’s annual Tournament of Champions, Executive Producer Michael Davies has revealed.
However, many fans will be unhappy if Mayim is revealed as the host.
As the episode aired, fans took to Twitter to express their dislike for the California native.
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.”
YES HE KEN
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 show.
“No one hosts it better than the man who won so many games on it.”
Another agreed: “Hooray! The true host is back. Ken is the one.”
Many loyal viewers are eager to learn who will take over as permanent host once this season comes to an end on July 29 2022.
