It's a big year for Mayim Bialik. "The Big Bang Theory" actress landed a new hosting gig for a reboot of "Candid Camera," and is now a brand ambassador for Texas Instruments. The "Blossom" star is the face for a selfie contest to make STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education fun.
"I've had a TI graphing calculator since I was about 14, so it was kind of a no-brainer," she told Variety.
"Not only do I love what Texas Instruments does in terms of their technology, but the outreach, the education, the teacher support - that's all the stuff that I think helps them be at the forefront."
Bialik is also enjoying her time with TV Land's new "Candid Camera."
"It's been great," she told the publication. "It's rare that you find things that are such a pleasurable and good match."
"That style of humor - that notion of watching people be human and the sort of social experiment that comes [with it], to me that's timeless."
As far as success on "The Big Bang Theory," the actress says "it's been a very pleasant surprise!"
Bialik was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series Emmy award but didn't win it. However, that didn't stop her from getting all dressed up for the event - though her dressing style has always been simple yet elegant.
"I famously dress modestly and so yeah, I don't wear strapless or sleeveless [gowns]. I wear everything below the knee and yes, I will likely be one of the only people wearing long sleeves at the Emmys," the star revealed to ABC News. "I like long, traditional gowns. I like a lot of coverage. I feel more comfortable when things aren't hanging out."
She explained Oliver Tolentino designed "a different style, a style I've never worn before that I've always wanted to wear!"
"I'm slightly larger than a Hollywood actress. ... because I'm not a size zero," she said. "I'm a pretty insecure person and like a lot of women, it's hard to be around women who look like models!"
