Jeopardy! host Mayim Bialik RIPS viewers for slamming her controversial show wardrobe & defends 'geeky' outfits

JEOPARDY! Host Mayim Bialik has ripped the viewers for slamming her controversial show wardrobe and defended her "geeky" outfits.

Mayim, 46, has defended her appearance during the Fox Upfront in New York.

The Jeopardy! hostess spoke to The New York Post about being judged by viewers for her wardrobe.

She revealed: "The fact is we don’t live in a culture where I can wear a gray suit and then a blue suit, but maybe next year we’ll see. 

"I don’t think anyone should think about it so much, especially me."

Mayim continued: "I’m one of these people who think red carpets should have a standard set of dresses for women. We don’t have so many.

"You can do long sleeve or short sleeve — that’s it, and everybody goes home.”

The Blossom actress then explained what a "nerd is" to her, outside the realms of Star Wars and Dungeons & Dragons.

She explained: "I think that my idea of a good time is reading academic papers.

"In my normal life, I fall under the very, very nerdy, geeky category. I don’t normally look like this."

Mayim concluded: "I look like a normal nerd walking around the street.”


Back in April, the former child star went after the trolls who criticized her wardrobe "fail" on the game show.

After she wore the same brownish blazer twice, the trolls asked her: "You're going to wear it again?"

Mayim explained why she wore the same blazer: "There's a budget on Jeopardy! people!"

She confessed: "I grew up with one bathroom till I was 15 and my brother was 19. 

"We budget!"

The Big Bang Theory actress promised: "I'm going to wear it again! And I'll wear it again."

She jokingly wrote about being a "repeat offender" in the caption of her Instagram post.

Mayim added: "That’s right! I repeated a blazer! 

"You caught me! And I’ll do it again!"


Meanwhile, fans are waiting to find out whether Mayim or co-host Ken Jennings will be announced as the new permanent host of Jeopardy!

The former champ is currently on hiatus but will return before the end of the season in July.

Mayim's sitcom Call Me Kat was renewed by the Fox network for a third season.

The sitcom's production schedule might pose logistical challenges to her future on the game show.
