Ken Jennings!!

Ken Jennings is a contestant on Its Jeporady!. He's won about $500,000 on the show and is currently a 13 day champion!!! Anyone watch Jeporady here? If so, then you've seen the master mind in action. If you haven't, you should. 2. Jun 22, 2004 ### Chrono I saw the one when he answered all questions on insects. Seriously, guys, I know some people are interested in it but, I don't know, I just don't think he does have much of a life. I mean, I'm probably 89% dumber than he is, and I don't have any kind of life. Jon 3. Jun 24, 2004 ### Chrono I'll tell you what, he'll have as much of a life as he could want with that kind of money. Jon 4. Jun 25, 2004 ### enigma Staff Emeritus I wonder how he'd stack up with some earlier big winners if they hadn't have changed the rules. There was one guy who won IIRC$100K+ in 5 days (when that was the limit before you were booted). The answers were also worth half as much back then. I remember he had a funny looking beard.

My high school guidance counselor won on Jeopardy three days in a row. He lucked out in final Jeopardy each time.

A highschool geology teacher of mine once participated in the wheel of fortune.. and left the show with 0 guilders in his pocket.. he didn't tell anyone about the show, but the whole school soon found out :P

I find that people with very broad bases of knowledge have lives. People retain knowledge that is interesting. One of the strongest motivators of interest is the interest of other people. I think some people are just jealous :tongue2: .

We don't know Ken well enough to come up with conclusions like that. Unless of course other people around here do know him as a friend. I agree with Njorl.

And the $500,000 dollar question is: What would you do if you have$500,000?

Well, to update you guys as of today, he won about $622,000. Anyway, he plans on going to France, England, Spain. Hey, hey, hey cookiemonster!! Good ol' bud! Gee you're such a nice guy....don't mind lendin' a good ol' pal of yours (yeah, we go back over 60 days!! that's friendship man!) a few hundered thousand bucks? I'm just askin' ya from the goodness of my heart...you know, just to help you out there with all that $$money$$$.

I'm curious. At what point would you quit? Here he is with a lot of new money, but he is stuck in LA taping Jeopardy! Sure, he's making \$30,000 a day, for a half-hour's work, but eventually, it won't be worthwhile.

I should have problems like that.
