In the seventh season of Scavenger Whirl, the Big Bang Theory team takes part in a scavenger hunt. They are divided into teams of two, resulting in interesting couples that you might not expect. For example, Amy Farrah Fowler ended up with Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg), and despite the initial awkward tension of not being able to have one-on-one time, they bonded incredibly. In a video about her YouTube channelMayim Bialik cites this episode as being very special to her as she has worked extensively with Helberg whom she admires and appreciates greatly and has learned a lot throughout their The Big Bang Theory series.
No wonder Bialik’s love for Helberg didn’t end with The Big Bang Theory. She cast it in her 2022 directorial debut, How They Made Us, which also stars Dustin Hoffman and Dianna Agron. A family drama about loss, love and connection between family members. Bialik knew she had to enlist Helberg for this deeply emotional story. “It was also very important to have someone who knew me when my father died, who knew my family, and it felt like I had a friend,” she said. Suncontinuing and praising the rest of the cast for their work in front of the camera.
Amy and Howard didn’t have much time for The Big Bang Theory, but when they did, it was usually fun. It goes without saying that the real-life connection between Mayim Bialik and Simon Helberg did a lot to make this happen.
