Jeopardy! fans shocked by NSFW moment with host Mayim Bialik & champ Ryan Long before contestants' 5th win

Jeopardy! fans shocked by NSFW moment with host Mayim Bialik & champ Ryan Long before contestants' 5th win

JEOPARDY! fans buzzed over returning champion Ryan Long who nabbed his fifth win Thursday.

But not before an NSFW moment with host Mayim Bialik that many could not believe.


Mayim, 46, is hosting Jeopardy! for a second week in a row, returning after Ken Jennings' prior three weeks at the helm and announcement he'd be out for "months."

The permanent hosting slot, however, is still on the board and will be decided by the end of Season 38 in July 2022.

Tonight, now-FIVE-day champ Ryan, a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania rideshare driver, drove his way to November's Tournament of Champions with Mattea Roach and  Amy Schneider – earning a massive $105K total.

But not before an NSFW moment many said "threw them off for a few minutes."

A category during the regular Jeopardy! round was interestingly titled "The Drugs of Humanity."

Ryan chimed in to answer one, and seemingly took the bait: "Let's do drugs for $1000," he told Mayim.

'LET'S DO DRUGS'

One Twitter user commented in shock: "Let’s do drugs for a thousand' heard on #Jeopardy (man that threw me off for a few minutes.)"

"Do drugs what huh?" wrote another stunned fan.

A third alleged that the producers 'planted' the NSFW phrasing on purpose.

"#Jeopardy writers: 'hur hur we got someone to say 'Let's Do Drugs' on TV.'" one wrote.

"My favorite line this week," encouraged another on Ryan's phrasing as dozens more were left in a haze by the bizarre category and wild moment.

WILL RYAN GO 'LONG'?

Regardless, Ryan won his fifth game and now has the longest streak since Canadian tutor Mattea's recent 23-game, $560K tear.

He's done so with a BOLD betting strategy quite different from hers.

Two nights ago, he surprisingly wagered a massive $8000 during a Daily Double, helping him win the game.

And yet again last night, Ryan boldly wagered – and won – $8000 – on a Daily Double, the at-random clue that allows players to choose their wager amount if selected

"Another 8000!" a surprised Mayim remarked, and that was before his $10K during Final Jeopardy which he lost but still won the game.

Tonight, Ryan bet $2000 on a Daily Double, which is still twice the minimum, as one fan tweeted in response: “Bet bigger!"

DOSE OF PERSONALITY

But more in line with the charismatic Canadian contestant, the Philly figure has also shared quite a few memorable Q&A stories.

Last night he said he worked on an "Amish farm" in high school, then noting, "People are gonna think I’m weird with all these stories."

And the night before, the broad-shouldered bet-maker sweetly shared he once fostered "four baby kittens" and "bottle-fed them" before his mom adopted them.

And during his first Q&A, the contestant pumped out an Arnold Schwarzenegger impression.

"Ryan's stories make me <3 him even more," one fan applauded.

Ryan has also been keeping it real on his Twitter, sharing that he forgot his glasses in Philly – as some fans have wondered online why he's "squinting."

"In case anybody’s wondering why I’m constantly squinting and adjusting during the game…it’s because my glasses are 3000 miles away, where they will do the most good," he posted this week.

He also shared in another tweet that he only brought "two shirts" to Culver City, and added a "huge shout out to the wardrobe department," in a third tweet, hinting there could be more to come.

"Ride share driver! Making it all even better," wrote a fan on his overall relatability as he continues cruising ahead.

'KEN HE COME BACK?'

Ken and the Big Bang Theory actress started filling in for the legendary Alex Trebek after his tragic passing and a fleet of Season 37 celebrity guest hosts.

The show's ratings nearly doubled to 9.7M viewers when Ken made his first appearance.

When Mayim took over her hosting duties the headcount dropped to 5.9 million viewers during a college championship.

Even Mattea stated after her run she wanted Ken to take over.

"As a contestant, there is something really special about being on stage with the greatest player of all time," she told Vulture.

While it's still undecided, Mayim's other show, Fox's Call Me Kat, was just renewed for a Season 3.

Some Reddit critics claimed this was "the deciding factor," claiming Mayim will be "too busy" to do regular Jeopardy!.

While many fans have found Mayim to be a perfectly palatable presence, she did have a "painful" return last week, others felt.

Mayim, who is a neuroscientist, replied to the contestant's earnest Q&A with a joke: "Glad to hear spitting in a tube went better than taking blood," the host bluntly said after the player's story about autism.

And during the same round in a different game – one said he was in a “fancy sports league” and Mayim curtly responded: "That’s so thrilling,” and moved on.

Mayim had another joke that flatlined before Ken returned for his recent stretch – she told a doctor he was "just an anesthesiologist, not a surgeon."

The banter blunders may be in part why some fans are giving her a hard time, if not that three-of-five games last week had Double Jeopardy clues still left on the board.

"I like Mayim Bialik but she’s gotta pick up the pace on Jeopardy. That’s multiple shows now where they’ve run out of time with clues left on the board," one tweeted last week.
