'Jeopardy!' Announces Mike Richards and Mayim Bialik as New Hosts | 22 Words

It has been announced that Mike Richards and Mayim Bialik will replace Alex Trebek as the hosts of Jeopardy!

Long-time host of the show Trebek sadly passed away last year after losing his battle with cancer. Following his heartbreaking death, the show used a number of guest hosts to fill his huge shoes.

Now though the decision has officially been made that TV producer Mike Richards and Big Bang Theory actress Mayim Bialik will replace him.

"We took this decision incredibly seriously," chairman of global television studios and corporate development for Sony Pictures Ravi Ahuja said, as per CNBC.

"A tremendous amount of work and deliberation has gone into it, perhaps more than has ever gone into the selection of hosts for a show – deservedly so because it's Jeopardy! and we are following the incomparable Alex Trebek.

"We are thrilled to begin the next chapter of America's Favorite Quiz Show with Mike hosting our daily show and Mayim hosting new versions of Jeopardy!"

Hopefully they can do the late, great Trebek proud. Good luck, guys.
