Jeopardy! fans think a major announcement about execs' permanent host pick is IMMINENT after spotting new clues

JEOPARDY! fans have claimed that a major announcement about the show's permanent host pick is reportedly imminent after spotting new clues.

Jeopardy! fans have been eager to find out if Ken Jennings, 47, or Mayim Bialik, 46, will be announced as the new permanent host of the quiz show.


Mayim and Ken have been sharing hosting duties ever since legendary host Alex Trebek passed away in 2020.

A Reddit user has put together clues from various sources and claimed the pick for the hosting gig is expected "soon."

FIRST CLUE

During the recent installment of his podcast, Omnibus, Ken revealed he has been scheduled for tapings in June.

Mark tweeted: "I’m happy to report I just signed my contract for another year of Jeopardy. Beyond grateful."

THIRD CLUE

Back in August 2021, Variety announced executive producer Mike Richards would take over the reins as host. 

Unfortunately, Mike would later resign as he landed in hot water over the controversial comments he made about his co-host Beth Triffon during The Randumb Show podcast.

In his statement, Mike said: "I was deeply honored to be asked to host the syndicated show and was thrilled by the opportunity to expand my role.

"However, over the last several days, it has become clear that moving forward as host would be too much of a distraction for our fans and not the right move for the show."

If following the same pattern, fans theorized that an official announcement would be made in the upcoming weeks or after "the long weekend celebrating Independence Day."

MORE THEORIES

Fans also theorized Mayim's commitment to the ABC show might have contactual issues.

The sitcom, Call Me Kat, was renewed by the Fox network for a third season.

The production schedule of her sitcom might pose logistical challenges to her future on the game show.

THE NBA FINALS

Fans were recently upset that upcoming episodes of the TV show might be "preempted" and air on a later date due to the NBA Finals. 

The finals, which will feature the Boston Celtics against the Golden State Warriors, might be taking over the usual time slot on the West Coast.

One angry viewer ranted: "We do not like preemptions."
