After revealing she is going to be the next host of the game show‚ Mayim Bialik has received strong criticism from fans. The popular game show has been without a female host since 2004‚ but viewers have had a lot of mixed reactions. Despite the many positive things Mayim Bialik has said about the show‚ some still don't think she should take the position full time. Some hope Ken Jennings takes it on permanently. Some viewers are expressing strong reservations about Mayim Bialik taking on the role of the show's host‚ citing the fact that she's not anti-vaxxers‚ and that she didn't like watching children get vaccines. Other fans‚ however‚ are defending the actress and her choice for the job‚ even though they think it's a good fit. Although Mayim Bialik's comments have drawn some controversy‚ many fans are supportive of her decision. She said that she didn't go off-script when referring to Single Jeopardy. She also expressed that she enjoys meeting contestants‚ even if she does have to do so with her husband‚ Ken Jennings. Regardless of the reactions‚ fans have strong opinions on the matter.

Apparently tonight is my 100th time hosting Jeopardy!, which means (a) I have now hosted more games than I played, and (b) I’m just 9,950 hours away from achieving Malcolm Gladwell-style mastery. — Ken Jennings (@KenJennings) March 12, 2022
Ken, I'm incredibly honored that my first game was your 100th. I grew up watching @Jeopardy ! every day since I was 8. Alex is a personal hero and his passing hurt like a friend. You are the host of Jeopardy! now. You are perfect. I will campaign for you forever. Thanks! — Matt From Jeopardy (not that Matt) (@JeopardyMattG) March 13, 2022
