The Change Mayim
Bialik Made On
Jeopardy! That
Irritated Fans
In the summer of 2021, when it was announced that Mayim Bialik would helm the beloved quiz competition "Jeopardy!," there was some backlash over the decision, and fans even went as far as criticizing Bialik for wearing the same orange blazer twice. But fans became deeply annoyed when she made a subtle, yet impactful change on the show.
Typically, the first round of the quiz show is simply called "Jeopardy" and the second round is "Double Jeopardy." Therefore, when Mayim Bialik referred to the former as "Single Jeopardy," people had something to say about it.
Fans took to social media to voice their displeasure and annoyance with one Twitter user posting, "Mayim out here just making up terms." However, during an appearance on "The Kelly Clarkson Show," Bialik set the record straight — she didn't make up the term. Not only do the clue boards that she reviews read "Single Jeopardy," but she said Alex Trebek used the phrase on occasion.
