Actress Mayim Bialik, renowned for portraying Amy Farrah Fowler on CBS’s “The Big Bang Theory,” announced on Saturday via her Instagram account that she will no longer serve as the host of the game show “Jeopardy!” Bialik shared this news with her 5.1 million followers without specifying the reasons behind the decision.
“As the holiday break begins in Hollywood, I have some Jeopardy! News,” Bialik wrote. “Sony has informed me that I will no longer be hosting the syndicated version of Jeopardy! I am incredibly honored to have been nominated for a Primetime Emmy for hosting this year and am deeply grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of the Jeopardy! Family.”
Expressing gratitude to her supporters and the entire “Jeopardy!” community, Bialik, who is Jewish and has been a vocal advocate for Israel, thanked fans, contestants, writers, staff, and crew. She concluded the Instagram post with appreciation for the journey.
Bialik’s Instagram page often features content related to Jewish and Israeli themes. She has been a strong supporter of Israel, condemning the October 7 massacre by Hamas and posting a message on October 9 praying for peace in Jerusalem and Israel. Referencing the Hebrew Bible’s book of Isaiah, she expressed hope for a day without bloodshed and concluded with the words “Am Yisrael Chai” in Hebrew.
The actress, who actively shares Jewish and Israel-related content on her Instagram, recently dedicated several posts to the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah. In a video posted on Friday, she engaged in a discussion with Jewish and Israeli rights activist and author Noa Tishby, addressing antisemitism in the context of the ongoing Israel-Hamas war.
