Jeopardy! fans stunned by Mayim’s NSFW joke before Ryan Long’s WILD 8th win

JEOPARDY! fans loved watching Ryan Long win his 8th straight game in a WILD way Tuesday, but not all loved a joke from its host.

Mayim Bialik ad-libbed off an NSFW clue with many viewers begging her to “be considerate of kids.”

Mayim, 46, is hosting Jeopardy! for a third 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 up for grabs and will be decided by the end of Season 38 in July 2022.

Tonight, returning champ Ryan, a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania rideshare driver, drove his way to his EIGHTH win with $160 in total earnings.

He did so in a wild Final Jeopardy finish, but it came at the price of an NSFW joke from Mayim.

Jeopardy! fans shocked by NSFW moment with Mayim before Ryan's 5th win

‘LET’S DO… WHAT?’

Ryan did not get the Final Jeopardy clue, about the Middle Ages, correct.

But center podium’s Eric Perez, did, and suddenly the two were neck-and-neck in the five digits.

However, Ryan was last to reveal his response, and his wager – a strategic $0.

“That was smart to wager zero!,” one fan gushed online as the choice shielded his streak, as another tweeted: “Close game!”

But host Mayim made a quip during the regular Jeopardy! round earlier that was hard to ignore.

‘THAT WAS PAINFUL’

An admittedly leading NSFW clue read: “Marijuana issue sent to this ‘committee’ generally composed of both houses of houses of the legislature.”

Champ Ryan buzzed in with: “What is: bipartisan committee?”

Mayim said, “No” and after no other contestant responded, she broke the silence with: 

“Joint committee, get it?”

The contestants nervously laughed but not everyone on Twitter was doing so.

“Won’t the #Jeopardy writers PLEASE think of the children watching, and their delicate ears that were just exposed to a cannabis reference?” one user fumed.

Another replied, “Hopefully they didn’t get it.”

A third bashed on Mayim’s add-on, “Marijuana? Joint? Har de har har….”

As another wrote, “That physically hurt.”

Last week, a similarly hazy category during the regular Jeopardy! round was titled “The Drugs of Humanity.”

Ryan chimed in to answer, and seemingly took the bait: “Let’s do drugs for $1000,” he told Mayim.

CAN RYAN GO ‘LONG?’

Regardless, Ryan – now the highest-earning regular gameplay champ from Philadelphia – has made great TV with his big personality, big bets and Q&A stories.

Tonight, he shared he used to watch the show with his mom, who thought “Alex Trebek was so handsome.”

Last week, he shared 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.

“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 last week.

Though thankfully – the specs appeared to have been flown in this week as the wins keep doing the same.

Ryan is also a big better when needed; he bet a huge $8000 on Daily Doubles in two games last week as fans on Twitter praised: “8k Daily Double again. Nice bet Ryan.”

BIALIK RATINGS BUST

As TV News Check reported, Jeopardy! ratings slid 10% to a seven-week low of 5.2 under Mayim last week.

While many fans have found Mayim to be a perfectly palatable presence, she has had some “painful” game since returning, many felt.

She’s had a few noticeable banter blunders including replying to a story about autism research with a joke about “spitting in a tube.”

And multiple games before Ryan’s impressive streak went unfinished with Double Jeopardy clues left on the board but no time left.

“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 during her first week 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.

Though many fans have enjoyed Mayim’s fashion transformation, another wrote on Twitter tonight, “Love Mayim but @KenJennings brings a Trebek vibe to #Jeopardy that is comforting and genuinely entertaining.

“Mayim brings performance, which feels inauthentic. Bring back Ken.”

Rideshare driver Ryan will attempt his ninth win tomorrow night and could catch up with Canadian champ Mattea Roach who won a huge 23 games that ended earlier this month when she lost by $1.
