Star of the popular CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory Mayim Bialik remained on the show for ten years since joining the cast in season three.

The series was taken off air after Jim Parsons decided to step down from his iconic comedy role as Sheldon Cooper.

However, the two co-stars have since reunited to produce the upcoming sitcom Call Me Kat, in which Mayim Bialik will also star.

In the meantime, Mayim is set to be front and centre for the upcoming YouTube series, Celebrity Show-Off, which will begin on June 23rd.

From the mind of The Masked Singer producer Craig Plestis, the series is adapted from another Korean game show, My Little Television.

The upcoming US iteration will run for ten episodes and feature celebrity guests taking on the challenge of shooting their own home video clips.

Each episode will feature five celebrities competing for the audience’s attention by premiering exclusive clips on the YouTube channel.

Clips will then be judged based on total views, duration and engagement, with the loser of each round replaced by another star.

Celebrities are set to compete to stay in the series for the longest time in order to raise the most money for charity.

In addition to newly announced host Mayim Bialik, stars such as Action Bronson, Jason Mraz, Kevin Smith, Tori Spelling, Diplo, Bella Thorne and more are all confirmed to be taking part.

Producer Craig Plestis told entertainment outlet Deadline: “After discovering The Masked Singer and bringing it to American audiences, I have been on the lookout for interesting and innovative Korean formats.”

The Masked Singer wrapped up its third exciting season last month for millions of clue-solving and theory-swapping fans.

Following an unpredictable and wildly popular outing of the top secret talent show, Real Housewives star Kandi Burruss was revealed as the Night Angel and took home the coveted Golden Mask.

Craig Plestis continued by touching on how to bring a similar style to the home video format, as The Masked Singer’s fourth season may be delayed amid the continuing pandemic.

He added: “Celebrity Show-Off is exactly that – a fresh, fun series unlike anything else on television.

“It’s a cutting edge take on celebrity competition that will allow viewers to see their favourite stars in completely new ways and put a smile on their faces in these trying times.”
