On Sunday’s edition of Celebrity Jeopardy! Mayim was joined by contestants Constance Wu, Ike Barinholtz, and Jalen Rose.

But during some mid-game chit-chat, the host asked Ike a tough question.

“You are a huge fan of Jeopardy! Specifically you’re a huge fan of Ken Jennings?” she enquired, before adding, “As we all are.”

But Ike was keen to maintain his neutrality on the Mayim vs Ken debate that has gripped Jeopardy fans ever since the two began sharing the gig.

“Let’s just be clear, I’m a huge fan of him as a player,’ began the actor.

“As a host, I’m totally agnostic. I love you and him equally.”

The studio audience laughed as Ike shrugged his hands nervously.

He also revealed that he has been watching Jeopardy! since was a child.

THE GREAT HOSTING DEBATE

Mayim is currently hosting Celebrity Jeopardy! which airs Sundays on ABC at 8 p.m. EST.

However, fans have slammed her hosting skills on the spinoff series since the season premiere on September 25.

Ken, meanwhile, is at the helm for the show’s regular weekday episodes until January, when Mayim will take over.

The decision to keep both hosts permanently was announced on July 27, following months of speculation over whether producers would drop either Mayim or Ken.

Since the two began sharing the hosting job in January 2021, fans have been bitterly divided over whom they prefer.

But in an interview with Inside Jeopardy! in September, Ken revealed that he loves the dual-hosting arrangement.

‘IT’S A MATTER OF TASTE’

“Jeopardy’s got such a big diverse audience, you’re not gonna be able to please everybody every night,” he said.

“But I think that’s the virtue of having a couple of hosts.
