On a recent episode of the Jeopardy! National College Championship, Claire Jackson, a sophomore at Spelman College in Atlanta Georgia, Nam Vu, a senior at Georgetown University in Washington DC, and Fiona Hellerman, a senior at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana battled it out.

During their competition, it was revealed that Marvel, for the first time in Jeopardy! history had its very own category. Clues included iconic Marvel films such as Black Panther (2018), Captain Marvel (2019), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017), and more.

When longtime Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek, 80, passed away after a long battle with cancer in November 2020, fans were devastated. The ABC show went through a number of Guest hosts to see who would be the best fit to replace Trebek.

After months of “auditions”, including Reading Rainbow host Lavar Burton and former Jeopardy! champions such as Buzzy Cohen, the show decided to go with not one, but two hosts — former Jeopardy! champion, Ken Jennings, and Big Bang Theory actress, Mayim Bialik.

Mayim Bialik has been under fire lately as she made a very subtle change to Jeopardy! that fans have definitely noticed. If you have not seen the actress host the show, she has been calling the opening round of the game “Single Jeopardy,” as opposed to just “the Jeopardy round,” which is what it was known as when Alex Trebek hosted.

Bialik is currently hosting the Jeopardy! National College Championship, which just recently hosted the debut of Marvel’s first-ever category on the show!
