Jeopardy! host Mayim Bialik shows off dramatic hair makeover in new selfie

Jeopardy! host Mayim Bialik shows off dramatic hair makeover in new selfie

MAYIM Bialik has debuted a bold, cropped hairstyle that left her fans doing a Daily Double-take.

The actress and Jeopardy! host currently on hiatus in lieu of Ken Jennings got the chop as seen in a new selfie on Thursday.

Mayim, 47, was all smiles while revealing her totally different look.

She tossed on some makeup and a heavy red lip to flaunt the results.

The TV star’s brunette locks were cut high above her neck leaving her tresses the same length in the front as the back.

She opted for long bangs but an extremely short neckline which made for quite the modern silhouette.

She captioned her Instagram post: “Sometimes the best lighting just happens to be in the bathroom. New hair!”

WILD CHILD!

Fans applauded Mayim for mixing things up with hair shorter than ever before, as one commented: “I wish I could pull off short hair like you do. You simply are stunning.”

“Short-haired girls unite!” wrote another.

“Love it sis!!! Wild child vibes,” wrote a third.

“I think this style looks fabulous on you!! Beautiful inside and out” wrote a fourth.

“Beauty!” Kunal Nayyar from her former sitcom Big Bang Theory wrote.

‘I WANT TO LOOK ACADEMIC’

Mayim – who has a PhD in neuroscience – has made it clear she isn’t looking to be the next Vanna White style-wise.

“I really just wanted to look like the academic that I was trained to be,” she said in a recent Facebook interview about hosting Jeopardy!.

“And to me, that does mean a certain amount of formality and decorum.”

“And also in great respect to Alex Trebek, the image I have of him is in a suit, it’s blazered up.”

WRONG HOST?

Seventy-four-time winner Ken, 48, and Mayim were announced as the successors for the late Alex Trebek last summer.

Mayim most recently helmed the three-week High School Reunion Tournament and handed the baton back to Ken afterward.

Ken is hosting episodes airing until April 28, then the sitcom star will finish out the last four months of the season – which will mark her first block of regular episodes this season.

When Ken returned after her tournament earlier this month, it appeared the game show had Mayim on their minds as Ken presented three categories named after her projects.

The categories were named for Mayim’s sitcoms—namely Blossom, The Big Bang Theory, and Call Me Kat.

Ken read out a sequence of Mayim-related categories on the game board, and then joked: “I sense a theme.”

“I’m not sure I was the intended host for this game board,” he quipped as the audience chuckled.

Some fans thought the moment was a scheduling mix-up when the show shared the moment on Instagram.

However, longtime producer Sarah Whitcomb Foss clarified that wasn’t so on Monday’s podcast Inside Jeopardy!.

“People on social [media], they actually commented, they thought maybe we made a mistake, maybe we didn’t know who was hosting that day.

“Please guys, they know exactly what they’re doing. And it was so much funnier that Ken introduced those categories.”

“I can say working with Mayim, she would have felt kind of awkward to have introduced three categories about herself or shows she had starred on.

“Obviously, the categories are never about what we think they are about, but I just want to point that out!”
