The actress will take over hosting duties with Ken Jennings in the wake of Richards’ controversial departure
Mayim Bialik called “Danger!” In the wake of Mike Richards’ controversial departure from the show.
Last week, Sony Pictures Television confirmed to Granthshala News that Bialik would watch the remainder of season 38 as “Joopardy!” Will host with Legend Ken Jennings. The pair will hold fort after Richards left the show following several inappropriate comments made in the past, while the brains behind the scenes look for a permanent replacement for Alex Trebek.
Bialik reflects on his “danger”! Journey so far in a post written for newsweek In which she discussed how she became one of the original guest hosts after Trebek’s death in November of 2020. He also touched on the Richards controversy, noting that he didn’t have much to say on the matter because he didn’t think so. Will affect her position on the show as much as it has.
When Richards was first announced as the new permanent replacement for Trebek, it was revealed that Bialik would host special event episodes such as the show’s “National College Championship”.

“I didn’t know right away who the second host was going to be, and after Mike Richards was announced as permanent host, a few more weeks passed and then everything changed and Mike stepped down,” she wrote . “I think everyone I work with will say that, as a person who’s been acting since childhood, I go where I’m prompted and I do what I’m supposed to do. It’s called. I do what’s in front of me. Me. I don’t really follow the news aspect of my industry very much.”
The star noted that she kept in touch with Richards after comments she made on a podcast came to light alleging she made derogatory remarks about women, people with mental disabilities and the poor. However, Bialik says that she stayed away from mourning about it all and instead focused on supporting the show and its fans.

“That’s how I contacted what was going on. Of course I got in touch with Mike because he was my boss at the time, and I don’t want him or anyone sick. But the complexity of these situations isn’t something easily expressed.” Can be done,” the former “Big Bang Theory” star explained. “My first reaction, when it all went downhill, was to say to Danger! Team: ‘How can I help?’ Because I am part of this family.”
In addition to joking about how much she’s having fun filming the season 38 episode and that she’d give up on her first child to get a permanent hosting job, Bialik took a moment to pay tribute to Trebek and the huge legacy he left behind. And the shoes he left behind everyone, including him, are struggling to fill.
“It probably sounds crazy, but you definitely feel Alex’s presence on that stage. As someone who doesn’t necessarily keep up with Alex’s constant presence in my living room, I see him on that stage every time.” I feel the place and I get to work with people who have worked so closely with him for decades and whom he calls friends. That’s what feels really special,” she concluded. “There will never be another Alex on camera or off. It’s important not to try and be him, because you can’t, but as I learn more about him, I see him live his life for humanity.” How did I do the work of dedication.. That’s the legacy I hold dear as I go to work every day.”
