What is Mayim's net worth?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Mayim accumulated an estimated fortune of $25million.

Her net worth is attributed to her leading roles in television.

The above-mentioned outlet lists the actress-turned-TV host's Big Bang salary as $450,000 per episode.

Her Big Bang Salary is a long way from the money she made from Blossom.

"I did not have the kind of financial success that would’ve set me up for the rest of my life," Mayim told the Ever After podcast.

"Also, our show was never put into syndication. Being a female was very different then."

When did Mayim become the host of Jeopardy?

On July 25, 2022, the team behind Jeopardy! revealed Mayim and Ken Jennings were made permanent co-hosts.

The announcement officially ended the search for the late Alex Trebek's replacement.

Michael Davies confirmed to Variety: "With all of our plans for Jeopardy! — which is more Jeopardy!, not less, more versions — we’re going to need multiple hosts to represent the entire audience, to represent the entire country, in order to take this franchise forward."
