I'm entirely convinced that Ken Jennings is a robot.

He is a GEEK AKA NERD AKA LOSER. I THINK HE IS CHEATING

YOU should be such a loser, Bballplayer.

what a rigged show: Ken's obviously getting the answers beforehand.

By Jaug1 (Jaug1) on Tuesday, September 07, 2004 - 07:55 pm: Edit

Lol Vancat. That isn't the reason why he is winning.

Yes, Ken is a genius in and of himself. However...thats not why he wins.

He wins because he has the best eye-hand coordination of any Jeopardy contestant. He can buzz in at the exact right time as soon as Alex finishes the question.

That is why.

By Vancat (Vancat) on Tuesday, September 07, 2004 - 08:00 pm: Edit

Jaug, you obviously didn't get my pun did you?

By Davidrune (Davidrune) on Tuesday, September 07, 2004 - 08:08 pm: Edit

What's the pun?

By Vancat (Vancat) on Tuesday, September 07, 2004 - 08:09 pm: Edit

think about it. Long and Hard.

By Scorp (Scorp) on Tuesday, September 07, 2004 - 09:52 pm: Edit

Good one Vancat :)

To learn more about trivia show scams, watch "Quiz Show" with Ralph Fiennes and John Turturro. Its about a quiz show on NBC in the fifties that was found to rehearse answers with its contestants before shows, and force winners to take a dive if the ratings were low. Good way to reinforce some of your theories about jeopardy..

holy crap.
i watched jeopardy today, and ken won something like $30,000, where the second place finisher had about $4000. geeeez. I don't think he's cheating. I think it's the hand-eye coordination thing. all the people on that show are smart, they just can't beat him to the buzzer.

justperfect...that's interesting. how did you find out that the show where he loses has already been taped?

By Justperfect (Justperfect) on Wednesday, September 08, 2004 - 08:42 pm: Edit

it has been said that its already been tapped months ago and he said it himself on the jay leno show, but his streak will be interupted in 2 weeks for another series,but he tapes like 5 shows a day so he has done everything and is watching himself on the tv every night

By Joev (Joev) on Thursday, September 09, 2004 - 06:09 am: Edit

According to some TV magazine, Jennings winning streak ended at a taping yesterday at 75 games and winning around $2.5 million.
