That's just it. I don't expect or want the host to be much of an attention getter.
Mayim interjected waaaaaay too much of her own personal experiences and thought into the game for me.
Just be a facilitator to the flow and stay out of the way of the constestants.

See, I'm the opposite. I enjoyed Mayim's interjections. It made her more relatable.

No, no, I get that. Not all of them are really vying for the gig so while it's easy to think of these as tryouts, I think the strategy was to buffer us between Alex who had really "become" Jeopardy and whoever the eventual permanent replacement will be. And it's working since we are only comparing these people to each other, not to Alex.

I agree. I wouldn't like everyone doing this and I know Mayim's been a star for a VERY long time, but she's also still sort of the anti-celebrity in that she's eschewed the more glamorous trappings of stardom. But the real "star" of the show is the game itself.

I miss Mayim. I just don't like Savana (didn't even care enough to get the spelling of her name right) Guthrie.
Ditto this. I liked Mayim.

Savannah (not sure of this spelling either) was stiff and awkward. Watching her walk onto the stage was like watching chalk walk across a chalkboard. IIANM someone who was on this board at one time dated her many moons ago.

Of the remaining GH's I have high hopes for LB. I am hoping he can just kill it. Then, for fun, he could host as Geordi La Forge one time in an all-Trek killer trivia evening.

No Jeopardy in its time slot tonight. Preempted because of some baseball all star nonsense.

Man, I love it when none of the contestants have gotten the Final Jeopardy right and I got it in 5 seconds.
