My 97-year-old great aunt likewise expressed to me her dissatisfaction with Bialik's sartorial choices and wanted to know what the J! mailing address was so that she could make said dissatisfaction more directly known.
OK, maybe their choices got a little too edgy ... (unhide if you dare)

My wife has likewise been less than impressed with many of Mayim's choices, though to be fair she has also expressed great satisfaction with a few.

On the other hand: suit, shirt, tie. GEE, THAT'S ORIGINAL.

And...what, did the staff also pick out Alex's ties? As long as it doesn't break the chromakey or go funky moire (which she probably also knows about) ... :roll:

I appreciate the point you're trying to make, but yeah, Alex did have a costumer, and his ties were provided as part of wardrobe, for many years as part of a sponsorship deal with Mr. Guy or Perry Ellis. I have one of his Perry Ellis ties that the Jeopardy! Store gave away as part of a promotion some years ago.

I would venture it's pretty unusual for national-TV game show hosts to costume themselves.

Robert might not want to let his aunt see that if he wants her to make 98.

I think Buzzy showed that a suit, shirt and tie don't have to be boring and unoriginal.

Same in my house. In addition to her clothing choices in general my wife is offended that she chooses to wear flat shoes.

I would think the shoes are a comfort choice due to standing for five shows per tape day.

Of course, but in her opinion it's an inexcusable choice. It would be like Alex or Ken hosting without a tie or jacket.

Trying to imagine your reaction if he tossed his hat in the ring right before his episodes aired and they got bumped in your area.

I'm truly trying to keep an open mind and give her ample time to grow into the role, but Mayim just isn't a very good fit in my opinion.

Since that's our area, I'll point out that Jeopardy! airs on the local CBS station. The Fox station is VHF, so most people can't even get it over the air, but cable companies still carry it. Glad he didn't get the gig, though. Somehow, I think his Senate bid will similarly underwhelm.

I'm finding Ken has grown on me as a host. Mayim was my favorite of the guests, so I'm happy with her, too. One of the few times these days that life seems to have worked out. Though I'm not a fan of the decreased competition, which leads to these long champion runs. They're going to need two-day champs in the TOC if they don't go back to the old methods. The professor tournament was just embarrassing.
