Mayim fans are familiar with blazers and modest dresses on Jeopardy! — which Ken Jennings, 48, hosts the dual until January — has not been on the board recently.

The three are Marvel’s Simo Liu, comedian Andy Richter – who previously won big in the spin-off series – and Ego Nwodim.
In one of the clips, Simo looked angry at Andy Richter’s performance, saying, “I’m really pissed off at Andy Richter right now, I’m not going to lie.”
One fan commented: “@AndyRichter will win. Hands down!”

What is it: the danger of celebrity?
The A-listers will play in nine games with three stars.
The spin-off will not interfere with regular episodes and will be a three-round tournament with six quarter-finals, three semi-finals and a final.
The jackpot is a whopping $1 million – to the chosen charity of the winner’s choice.
The danger of celebrities! It was first played in 1992 and the last tournament was held in 2015.
This is the first time the special will not be hosted by the late Alex Trebek.
The spin-off was so popular that it spawned famous Saturday Night Live skits – some of Will Ferrell’s “most popular” skits in The Hollywood Reporter (he overplayed Alex, of course).
To keep things interesting with the reboot after a seven-year wait, executives revealed they’re testing a new Triple Jeopardy! Round and parts will be one hour.
There will be six Daily Doubles — hidden clues that players choose what to bet — instead of three, which the show has never tried before in the new round.
While the actress occasionally flaunted her specs in the new trailer, she’s gone glasses-free in almost all of the main photos from last season of Jeopardy!.
The TV personality did just that in a revealing outfit for sizzling promotional photos for another project just yesterday.
In fact, she was more than happy to pose for promotional photos before the third season of Call Me Kat aired.
Ahead of the premiere, she flashed a smoky eye, a daring cross dress – and crossed one leg over the other, revealing plenty of skin.
For their special joint appearance, where they talked about the challenges of replacing Alex, Mime wore a chocolate brown blouse and a black jacket over the top.
Her hair was slicked back and flowed down to her shoulders – especially since her glasses were gone, giving fans a clear view of her TV-ready make-up.
Mayme even joked to the co-host-turned-alum that in her taping days, she’s upping her fashion game, as we see now.
“I look like Ken and I come out like this,” he laughed on his weekly Inside Jeopardy podcast.
Ken – who usually has his hair slicked back, less shaggy than when he was a contestant – was completely taken aback.
Sitting next to him, he answered with a laugh: Like me now?
The danger of celebrities! It airs Sundays starting Sunday on ABC, and every week after that, episodes air the day after on Hulu.
