What about Mayim Bialik’s latest position as the host of ‘Jeopardy!’ and COVID-19 diagnosis?
Mayim took over as the temporary host of Jeopardy! in place of Ken Jennings when he announced he was taking a break from the show. Unfortunately for her, the response she’s received from audiences hasn’t been rainbows and butterflies.
She revealed during an episode of her personal podcast that viewers often tell her they prefer Ken’s hosting style over hers — and that she simply doesn’t measure up. During the podcast, she was speaking with fellow actor Justin Long about the circumstances of her temporary hosting job.
He spoke about the Hollywood industry telling her, “Isn’t it wild? It’s the only profession that I can think of — or maybe politicians — where people will tell you deeply insulting things but with a big smile.”
Regardless of the negative feedback, Mayim was still showing up regularly to get the job done until her announcement about taking a break due to a COVID-19 diagnosis. According to CNN, she said her experience with COVID-19 has been “no joke.” She obviously won’t be back to work until she is healthy again.
