Actress Mayim Bialik split hosting duties with writer and previous contestant Ken Jennings, Jopardi! Will continue to co-host
Bialik, who is Jewish and openly observant, is hosting a threat! From August 2021.
He was ranked 40th in The Jerusalem Post's Top 50 Most Influential Jews of 2021.
Upon joining Jopardi last August, she said via a statement: "I couldn't be more thrilled to join the Dangerous family."
What started with my 15-year-old repeating a rumor from Instagram that I should host the show has become one of the most exciting and surreal opportunities of my life.
Bialik is best known for the memorable characters he plays, including Amy Farah Fowler in "The Big Bang Theory," but he is also a neuroscientist and a prominent Jewish figure in American popular culture.
A second-generation Ashkenaz Jewish American, Bialik identifies as Modern Orthodox and has always been dressed according to the Jewish standard of modesty in public.
