BiT question: Is there significance in "The host of Jeopardy, Mayim Bialik!" and "Hosting Jeopardy, Ken Jennings!". Will that continue?
Reminds me of the early 1960s when Durward Kirby was "the host of Candid Camera" and Allen Funt was billed as "Mr. Candid Camera himself." Only an old geezer like me would know why.

More information for next season.

It will begin with the "Second Chance Tournament" in September which features 15 players from the past season that the producers feel deserve a second chance. One of those will be the fourth place semi-finalist in the College Championship who won his semifinal match but did not advance to the finals because only three people made it. The winner of the Second Chance Tournament will advance to the Tournament of Champions (others may also advance), which will start the following week. Both of those tournaments will be hosted by Ken Jennings. Jennings will start hosting next season and take over in January for as much as her schedule allows (her TV series will be back next season as well).

They've posted the format for the next Tournament of Champions. There will be 21 contestants, including two winners of the upcoming second chance tournament. They will start with six games featuring 18 of the contestants. The six winners will join Matt Amodeo, Mattea Roach, and Amy Schneider (who have first round byes) in the semis. The three semifinal winners will play a series of games until someone has won three games. (This is the same format used to pick the greatest of all time tournament with Jennings, Rutter, and Holzhauer.)

I hadn't heard that Jennings prefers the she/her/hers pronouns. Nor that she has a TV series. Good for her!
