Who Has More Money on ‘Jeopardy!’: Ken Jennings or Mayim Bialik?

Ken Jennings, a former Jeopardy! contestant, and actress Mayim Bialik are filling in as hosts on the classic answer-and-question quiz show until the end of 2021.

Both are hugely popular with the show’s audience, and both are extremely busy with projects outside of it.

Guests have included journalist Katie Couric, CNN’s Anderson Cooper, another of the show’s champions Buzzy Cohen, Today co-host Savannah Guthrie, CNN’s chief medical correspondent Dr.

Sanjay Gupta, George Stephanopoulos and Robin Roberts of Good Morning America, actor and television personality LeVar Burton, CNBC financial anchor David Faber, and Fox sportscaster Joe Buck are among the guests.

Bialik and Jennings, to name a few.

After their experience, each guest host invariably said something along the lines of, “Alex Trebek made this job look very easy.”

“It’s a very tricky job,” said Jennings, who began his second guest-hosting stint at the beginning of 2021.

The logistics of hosting ‘Jeopardy!’ are complex.

There’s a lot going on at the same time, and Alex made it all seem so simple.

But I can tell you from personal experience that it isn’t easy.”

Just two months after Trebek’s death in 2020, the Greatest of All Time player admitted that stepping in as the first guest host was terrifying.

He continued, “I was just terrified, and I think rightfully so.”

“I mean, Alex had only recently passed away, and the show hadn’t been hosted by anyone else since 1974; literally in my lifetime.”

It’s expected that either Jennings or Bialik will be chosen as the show’s permanent host.

But we’ll have to wait and see what Jeopardy! has to say about it in the end.

Jennings is worth (dollar)4 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

From his 2004 regular-season wins, the 74-game Jeopardy! champion earned (dollar)2,520,700; for the 75th game that eluded him, he received (dollar)2,000 second place.

He went on to win (dollar)500,000 for second place in Jeopardy!’s Ultimate Tournament of Champions in 2005, and (dollar)300,000 for second place in the show’s 2011 IBM Challenge.

Jeopardy! clearly enjoyed having Jennings on the show, as he was invited back in 2014 for the Battle of the Decades game and again in 2019 for the Jeopardy!
