Mayim Bialik is one of the many guest hosts to fill the hosting spot on Jeopardy! following Alex Trebek’s death, and Bialik is remembering the legacy of the long-time game show host. “I think this is the most iconic thing, you know, that I will ever do in my career,” 45-year-old Bialik says.

“Obviously [it’s] a huge loss to not have Alex Trebek as part of ‘Jeopardy!’ but I also think, especially as a woman, I’m really, really flattered to be even considered for a guest role.”
