J! Quickcap: 7/26/2022

Reports yesterday have indicated that Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings will continue to split hosting duties next season like they have been all this season, though, neither Bialik, Jennings or even J! themselves confirmed these reports to be true. Only time will tell when the decision will be made, but signs are pointing towards Bialik being chosen for the job.

The fact that a permanent host still has not been confirmed yet at this point is pretty disappointing.

I’m Hop the Bunny! Hop! Hop! Is that so, Alexa? -__- (Likely Zonk Answer of the Week) Not only that, she may have miscalculated on her wager. Not that it ended up mattering, anyway.

With that, we will end this season w/ only one returning champion skunking for the second season in a row (& one skunk threat which is one down from last season)!
