“Jeopardy!” host Mayim Bialik is being criticized for her inconsistent hosting rules.
During a Double Jeopardy round, contestant Kyle Marshall chose the category “Presidential Doin’s” for $400.
The clue on the screen read, “Made Henry Clay Secretary of State; 2 years after the White House, settled into a new House (of Representatives).”
After Marshall answered, “Adams,” Bialik, 47, requested he be more specific with his answer.

However, later in Wednesday night’s show, the “Call Me Kat” star didn’t ask for further clarification when Marshall answered “Harrison” for another presidential clue.
Fans were not happy about this questionable ruling.
Since Bialik began hosting the beloved game show, the former “Big Bang Theory” star has received backlash from fans who have been very outspoken on social media.

Several viewers continued to blast her hosting style after she and Ken Jennings took over for late host Alex Trebek.
Last month, there was much debate over an answer that Bialik declared incorrect.
When contestant Sami Casanova picked the category “The Quotable Alex” for $1,600, the clue read, “An author and former prisoner: ‘Socialism of any type and shade leads to a total destruction of the human spirit.’”
All three “Jeopardy!” contestants — Juveria Zaheer, returning champion Hannah Wilson and Casanova — guessed [Aleksandr] Solzhenitsyn. However, the Russian name appeared to be mispronounced.

Bialik joined Jennings as a co-host of the trivia game show in 2021 after Trebek’s death from pancreatic cancer. The two were initially tapped to host the show through the end of season 38 while executives searched for a permanent new host. However, it was announced in July 2022 the two would officially share the role.
