New host of Celebrity Jeopardy! Season 2:
While Mayim Bialik brilliantly hosted the first season of Celebrity Jeopardy!, this time around, fans can expect to see the legendary Ken Jennings at the helm. Bialik's absence is due to her support for ongoing Writers Guild of America and Screen Actors Guild strikes, aligning herself with the striking actors' union, SAG-AFTRA.
Star-studded lineup of Celebrity Jeopardy! Season 2:
A total of 27 celebrities will compete in Celebrity Jeopardy! Season 2. Among the notable participants, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Mark Duplass, and Emily Hampshire are confirmed to face off in the opening game.
Format of Celebrity Jeopardy! Season 2:
Fans of the show can expect the same beloved format as in the previous season. Contestants will answer clues in the form of questions, aiming to accumulate the most money/points over two rounds: Jeopardy and Double Jeopardy. The Final Jeopardy round will see all contestants wagering their earnings on a single question. The contestant with the highest combined score from two games will be declared the winner.
Celebrity Jeopardy! episodes run for an hour, featuring two full games, and the highest combined score advances contestants to the next round.
The season will consist of three quarterfinal rounds, with nine contestants playing games. The winners from these rounds will move on to the semifinals, and the victors of the semifinals will compete in the highly-anticipated Celebrity Jeopardy! finals.
