For the first time in seven years, Celebrity Jeopardy! will hit the famous blue and purple stage.

In their reveal, the ABC network stated, “A host will be announced at a later date,” but interestingly, Variety shared that current Jeopardy! host Mayim, 46, is actually willing to host him.

Fans have wondered who between her and Ken Jennings, 47, the respected regular Jeopardy! Hosting slot at the end of Season 38 in July.

But in the meantime, fans are also excited about the Celebrity Jeopardy! announcement and have some unruly theories about it.

Celebrity Danger! The first tournament aired in 1992 and the last tournament was in 2015 – it airs five consecutive Sundays in the fall.

The 2015 tournament was won by soccer player Aaron Rodgers (who was also the show’s guest host in 2020) and the special has previously only been hosted by the late Alex Trebek.

The footballer took on Breaking Bad showrunner Vince Gilligan, actress Debra Messing and 12 other well-known celebrities.

Given this batch — a concoction of brains and star power — fans on Reddit have had theories as to who might be involved, and they really run the board.

“KENAN, KESHA… KEN!?”

One Redditor commented, “As a comedian and licensed doctor, I think Ken Jeong would be both entertaining and good at the game.”

The Hangover actor and Masked Singer judge is a licensed physician who has practiced internal medicine, according to NPR.

“I think he’s at a good crossroads between entertaining and smart for celebrity danger,” supported another.

But soon more shocking names were dropped, and top picks were agreed upon by dozens.

“My vote is for Kenan Thompson,” the Jeopardy! Parodies – a staple – on Saturday Night Live – “Yes please,” agreed a second, while a third wrote: “Great idea!”

Another commented, “I don’t have any names in mind but I really want some celebrities that we have low/nonexistent expectations of to blow their competitors to the magnitude of an Andy Richter/Wolf Blitzer type match.”

The prankster infamously beaten up the CNN character in a Celebrity Jeopardy! Play years back for nearly $40,000.

Two Redditors had a singer in mind when one wrote: Kesha is actually very smart.

The singer scored 1500 on her SATs before turning to music Prep Expert.

Another wrote: “Big second after Ke$ha nomination.”

Another chimed in: “Daniel Radcliffe would probably have fun on Celebrity Jeopardy! and I have a feeling he’d be up for it.”

And as a recent user grumbled, “My dream is that Ken Jennings is the host.”

MIXED ON MAYIM

Mayim’s other show, Fox’s Call Me Kat, has just been renewed for a third season – Ken supporters, of whom there are many, rushed to Reddit for the announcement last week, as she stars as the titular kat on the multi-camera sitcom.

Some felt this was “the deciding factor” and claimed Mayim was “too busy” to watch Jeopardy! – In fact, hundreds commented approvingly.

As one ripped, “Another good sign suggesting Ken is hosting the syndicated show full-time.”

Harsh critics found the actress’ hosting “painful” last week as she returned from Ken’s previous three-week hosting.

At least three games had Double Jeopardy clues on the board when time ran out.

A fan wrote on Twitter on Friday: “I like Mayim Bialik but she needs to pick up the pace on Jeopardy.

During Canadian tutor and fan favorite Mattea Roach’s recent 23-game tear, nearly all under Ken, games rarely – if ever – had clues left, and even she declared after her run that she prefers Ken.

“As a contestant, it’s very special to be on stage with the greatest player of all time,” she told Vulture.

Ken and the Big Bang Theory graduate began filling in for the legendary host in 2021.

After his tragic death, however, there was a fleet of celebrity guest hosts on Season 37, including footballer Aaron.

It was then surprisingly narrowed down to Mayim and Mike Richards – but the executive producer resigned due to previous misogynistic comments, and fan favorite Ken entered the running.

The show’s ratings nearly doubled to 9.7 million viewers when Ken debuted and also hosted through contestant Amy Schneider’s two-month winning streak.

However, unlike Ken, Mayim didn’t have the benefit of hosting when a recent entrant went into a Tournament of Champions, causing a rift – which always results in higher ratings and more “buzz.”

The official nominees for Celebrity Jeopardy and the host of November’s upcoming Tournament of Champions have been announced – suddenly the stakes are high for the decade-long game show.
