Ken Jennings is “gonna miss” Mayim Bialik on ‘Jeopardy!’.

The 49-year-old former competitor co-hosted the game show with Mayim, 48, until earlier this year, and Ken admits that he’ll feel her absence over the coming months.

He told The Hollywood Reporter: “It took me off guard, because I loved working with my Mayim and I’m gonna miss her.

“I can’t speak to her decision-making process or her opinions about it.”

Ken landed the hosting gig after Alex Trebek’s death in November 2020, and he’s relished the experience so far.

He shared: “I’m just a fan of ‘Jeopardy!’ and I’m always delighted to host when they call upon me. I just feel extremely lucky to have even been considered for this job as a non-broadcaster.

“It’s kind of a weird thing to try to bring back an ex-contestant to host, and I’ve obviously been learning as I go. But I loved growing up with ‘Jeopardy!’ where Alex was the host of that show for almost 38 years, and people just kind of felt like he was part of their family, and it’s impossible to fill those shoes. But it’s such an honour and hopefully I look forward to 37 more years of doing it, when I’ll be a very, very old man.”

Mayim was recently axed as the co-host of ‘Jeopardy!’.

The actress took to social media to announce that she had left the long-running game show.

Mayim wrote on Instagram: “As the holiday break begins in Hollywood, I have some Jeopardy! news. Sony has informed me that I will no longer be hosting the syndicated version of Jeopardy! I am incredibly honored to have been nominated for a primetime Emmy for hosting this year and I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of the Jeopardy! family. For all of you who have supported me through this incredible journey and to the fans, contestants, writers, staff and crew of America’s Favorite Quiz Show, thank you.”
