Mayim Bialik confirmed that she’s hoping to solidify her Jeopardy! future as the permanent full-time host of the game show beyond the current season.
The former Big Bang Theory actress and neuroscientist told Glamour in a new interview,
“There’s no other job I would rather have, I love my sitcom work, I do. I love all the other things I do. I love the podcast. But I absolutely have never had a better job.”
Sony Pictures Television announced that Bialik would fill in as the host of Jeopardy! along with former winner Ken Jennings through 2021 after an embarrassing shake-up that saw newly-appointed host Mike Richards step down after just one day in front of the cameras amid a series of scandals.
The Hollywood Reporter previously reported Bialik was the studio’s top choice for the role permanently, and that Jennings would step in during periods when Bialik was committed to filming her Fox sitcom, Call Me Kat.
