Hosts of “Jeopardy!” are finding themselves at a crossroads.
The series has been a hit with viewers for decades, but some of its stars are taking a more social approach to the show, which focuses on celebrity contestants answering trivia questions.
Host Michelle Visage and Jeopardy!
host Alex Trebek have both been outspoken about social media use, saying they’re not interested in a show that’s all about ratings.
Some have gone so far as to say they’ve seen ratings drop by as much as 80 percent after posting a photo of a meal online.
Here’s a look at what some of the biggest stars have been doing in the past year: 1.
Michelle Vissevs host of “The View” Michelle Visame has become an outspoken advocate for social media.
The “View” host has been known to take to social media to express her opinions on social issues like the Ebola virus, but her most recent posts were more pointed.
Visame took to Twitter to criticize the #DontTakeThisHost campaign and other celebrities who have taken to social networking to raise money for a cancer charity.
She wrote: “You know what?
I hate #donttakethishost campaign.
It makes me sick.
The people who raise money and donate to cancer charities are all entitled to their opinion, but if they want to promote a cause and promote their brand, I dont want to participate.”
She also tweeted a photo that showed a hostess who was posing with a stuffed animal.
“You have no idea how many people are hurting right now because of this,” she wrote.
“Just tell me how you feel.”
Visame also wrote a message on Instagram, calling on people to donate money to the “cancer charity of their choice.”
The actress also spoke out about other celebrities taking to social platforms to raise awareness about the Ebola crisis.
“I know what a sick person can feel like, and I know what that can do to people’s health,” she said.
“So please do whatever you can.
Please, donate, or go to the nearest hospital, or donate to a local organization, or anything.
There are a lot of good people out there.”
Jeopardia host Alex Bregman has become a vocal advocate for people to help those in need.
He also recently wrote an Instagram post, criticizing social media for not doing enough to support those in dire need.
“It is beyond frustrating that there are still people living in desperate poverty, with no access to clean water, food, medicine, or shelter,” he wrote.
Bregmans post was widely shared, with many saying he was being overly harsh.
But he added that he felt like it was important to note that social media has become the main way that people are able to get the word out about the pandemic.
“If we can get them to feel connected and want to be a part of it, that’s great,” he said.
Host of “This American Life” Amy Poehler, host of ABC’s “This Week,” is taking a stand on social media with a new campaign.
In a series of posts, Poehler is encouraging people to take part in a campaign called “Be a Better Dad.”
In one, she encourages people to post a photo on Instagram with a child or adult with a food allergy.
The post also asks people to send a letter of support and send money to a cause they believe in.
Poehler wrote, “It doesn’t matter what the cause is.
Just make a photo and post it on Instagram.
It’s really simple.
We all want to help each other.”
She has also started a Twitter account, @beaepoelch, where people can write letters to people in need and support their cause.
“When you can get someone to look at your face and think, ‘I can help that person,’ that’s when you really get it,” she told ABC News.
“We are all in this together, and we are going to be there for each other through this.”
Celebrity chef Robert Lopez, who owns La Casita in San Francisco, has become vocal about social platforms.
In February, he announced his retirement after 11 years on the show.
“The reason I’m retiring is because I don’t think it is a good business,” Lopez told the San Francisco Chronicle.
“In fact, I think it’s a bad business.”
He also told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, “I want to thank you for being a part.
You’ve given me a platform.”
Actress and actor/comedian Miley Cyrus is also taking a stance on social platforms and has become more vocal about the issue.
In an Instagram video, she wrote, “@cbsnews, I love you but you’re killing me.
You are destroying the culture of the show.”
Cyrus was responding to comments made by a host on “The Late Show With Stephen
