On May 7, 2022, Ken Jennings took to social media to announce a temporary layoff Danger! Host.
Ken Jennings tweeted that he was taking some time off from The Jeopardy! Show.
Who will be the new permanent Jeopardy! Host?
A permanent host of Jeopardy! has yet to be announced to the ABC network.
Jennings announced his temporary hiatus from the show back in May 2022 via Twitter.
He wrote: “I’m returning the keys to the talented actor-producer-writer-director (!) @missmayim for a few months.
“We’re lucky to have her! Thanks for watching and I’ll be back before the end of the season.”
For now, Mayim Bialik is the show’s host until Jennings returns.
It’s unclear if both will remain as co-hosts or if one of them will be chosen as the permanent host.
When asked about the host of the new spinoff, Celebrity Jeopardy! Craig Erwich, the president of Hulu Originals & ABC Entertainment, told The Wrap that a host for the show has not yet been decided.
He also spoke to Variety about the new spin-off and the details of the show.
“It’s really just about the details of the announcement,” Erwich said.
“And we’re just not ready yet, but we will be soon. I wouldn’t read anything into it.”
Bialik, 46, is said to be the front-runner in hosting the new show.
Following the firing of the series’ former executive producer Mike Richards, both Bialik, 46, and Jennings, 47, have taken on the role of host.
What are people saying about the Jeopardy! Host?
Before deciding on the permanent host of Jeopardy! Some fans aren’t in favor of Bialik taking on the role full-time.

Another user wrote: “If Mayim Bialik gets that #Danger Job, I’ll just quit watching Jeopardy lol.”
Despite some backlash from fans, there is some rooting for the actress to take on the role.
