On Monday! Mayim Bialik will start her hosting stint on Jeopardy!
Mayim Bialik is very excited exactly like previous guest hosts as she will stand behind the Jeopardy! podium.
On Monday, Bialik will act upon the list of guests after the death of the novel host, Alex Trebek of the Big Bang Theory show. She has already invited Ken Jennings, Richards, Katie Couric, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Aaron Rodgers, Anderson Cooper, and Bill Whitaker.
She will be the second woman as a host who expressed her excitement to stand in Trebek’s place.
On Saturday, before her announcement, she explained in a Jeopardy! interview that it is an honor to follow the late show’s footsteps.
“This is such an iconic and unbelievable piece of our collective culture, to be considered to be part of it really in any way, it’s an immense honor. Especially for someone who’s dedicated so much of my life to academia to knowing things and to being able to communicate things,” she said.
Further, she is a good addition to academia, she wishes to apply for her new role.
As per Call Me Kat star, she is keen to show herself up as a woman of science. She told that she had no role models when she grew up. But through her recent stint, she wants young people to know that women can be scientists too.
She said that it is vital to present women taking intellectual things seriously as well.
Bialik went on, “Also, as a second-generation American whose grandparents on one side never fully mastered the English language, it’s just an unbelievable opportunity to see what in two generations my family has been able to see.”
Following these past guest hosts, she chose a particular charity where she will donate an amount of the cumulative earnings. The host then chose the National Alliance on Mental Illness, or NAMI, as the beneficiary.
Bialik supports and provides resources to those people living with mental illness. She exposed that she has been a dedicated supporter of NAMI for two decades that she refers people to the alliance regularly.
Although she feels excited as well as nervous. She explained that the show host also carries great responsibility other than hosting the show.
