Peril! fans stunned by host Ken Jennings’ new hairstyle and champ Mattea Roach flaunts exotic tattoo in ‘WILD’ game
PERIL! fans were stunned when Mattea Roach flaunted an EXOTIC arm tattoo and Ken Jennings debuted a new haircut.
The Eight Day Champion literally rolled up her sleeves on Thursday, shocking fans.
Ken currently shares hosting duties with actress Mayim Bialik and returned this week to the delight of many.
And as some fans noticed on the April 14 episode, the intoxicating Jeopardy! alum had a new haircut, as one wrote on Twitter, “@KenJennings has a new hairstyle.”
But that’s not all they noticed, as the user added, “And @mattearoach shows off his scorpion tattoo. #jeopardy is wild tonight.”
While Ken appeared to be flaunting a sleeker style, dozens of fans noticed Canadian tutor Mattea’s EXOTIC tattoo as she continued to sting the competition.
On Mattea’s forearm was a massive scorpion that was visible for much of the match.
“I just noticed the tattoos on Mattea’s arms tonight…so that’s something,” one viewer wrote.
Another wrote: “A Scorpio with a Scorpion tattoo and glasses is in danger…just saying.”
As for tonight’s episode, Mattea had $168,000 in earnings, starting the show with a full music category sweep — and two of her SEVEN tattoos also happen to be inspired by music.

Mattea has SEVEN tattoos including two LEG tattoos dedicated to The Talking Heads.
“So I have under both of my knees – on one leg I have ‘like before’ and on the other leg I have ‘how did I get here’ both of [the song] Once in a lifetime”, she Explain during a previous meeting, the turn of the candidates.
“She has great taste in music! #Jeopardy,” one viewer tweeted last week when she shared her ink.
“I have 7 tattoos! Good for Mattea~~knew I liked her! #Jeopardy,” another fan wrote of the 23-year-old.
“I like Mattea. For a young lady, she knows her classic rock. And a lot of other stuff. And cool Talking Heads tattoos. I want her to grow up,” another exclaimed. .
The Talking Heads are a critically respected band led by David Byrne.
Their live concert Stop Making Sense is ranked as the fourth best concert film ever made by Rotten Tomatoes.
However, other critics have found the dominant player divisive and want her to conceal some of her “many” off-the-cuff remarks between replies.
“Holy shit Mattea, stop trying to interact with the hosts like you’re friends. Answer the questions and move on, we don’t need your boring little props,” one fan fumed.
“Maybe if Mattea would stop with the ad libs and awkward hand gestures, she wouldn’t get so much bullshit online,” another slammed, despite appearing to be in the minority.
WILL KEN INK MAYIM?
Mayim and Ken started acting as temporary hosts after the tragic death of Alex Trebek in 2020.
Ken started with an average of 9.2 million views, topping Wheel of Fortune and other competing game show charts, when he first hosted.
By the end of March, Mayim, who replaced shortly after, increased his viewership to 5.7 million, but many fans were still begging Ken to take over full-time.
“I really wish Jeopardy would just say Ken is the new host and get it over with. This is clearly where it’s at,” one wrote Tonight.
The Blossom actress has announced that she and Ken will be done hosting Jeopardy! in July 2022, when the yet-to-be-announced permanent host will take over.
During yesterday’s episode, however, fans fumed over Ken’s Final Jeopardy question about the “Seven Year War” that many considered a “mistake.”
Meanwhile, the Canadian tattooed tutor in a tear will go for her ninth victory tomorrow.
