42 thoughts on “Ken Jennings on his winning ‘Jeopardy!’ moment l ABC News

  1. The three greatest players of all time in the presence of the man who spent every breath he could hosting the show they loved. That Alex loved. This is like a make-a-wish kid asking to see LeBron James, Michael Jordan, and Kobe Bryant play one on one kings court and than having it actually happen. Such a gorgeous moment.

  2. Ken Jennings is a force of nature and I have rooted for him in the last tournament he was in. He would make a great host if or when Alex Trebet retires. For now, let’s be happy when he debuts as co-host of Jeopardy.

  3. what an asinine question from that stephanopolous douchebag. James had enough points in second game to win outright regardless of Ken's wager but only if he wagered most of his money and got it right. so obviously in was in Ken's interest to wager nothing

  4. Jeopardy is a great game-but a lot of chance, too. James could not seem to buy a daily double–and that is a huge disadvantage. If you look at the series, James hardly got any of them, they went to Ken and the other guy, almost every time. Then there is the issue of how much you have WHEN you hit the daily double. Finally, if you are beating the nearest guy badly, but have not more than doubled their score going into the final–it all comes down to one question. Say you have 18,000 and I have 9500–you have beaten me badly YET if I bet it all–and why wouldn't I, and get the answer right, and you miss on that one thing, then I win. So there is a lot of unfairness on the show, as it is set up. Still, Jennings is a great player–but so is James and chance played a big part in ho it all came out–too much so, I thought.

  5. Well, I have the Jeopardy tournament on my DVR, but I guess I can delete it thanks to you, GMA— Thanks for spoiling the winner in your title AND thumbnail. Now I won't watch the program. Way to go.

  6. i was shocked when ken bet nothing in the 2nd final jeopardy… he left the door wide open for james to even the score at 2… but surprisingly, james missed it… dug a 31k hole after the first round after wagering just 11k

  7. Ken Jennings is incredibly humble. In reality, I believe if we would have had 10 of these contests we would end up with Ken Jennings as the winner multiple times in a row. The proof of this is that Ken won 3-1 in a contest that involved two games of Jeopardy each. Ken is too humble to ever say that, though. I personally believe Ken is the person who should be the host of Jeopardy after Alex eventually decides to step down.

  8. A Thrilling tournament…though I was hoping it would go longer, even down to the wire.
    But Attention ABC, and Jeopardy producers:
    There's no need for a long search and multiple auditions to find the next Jeopardy host. He's right under your nose.
    Ken Jennings is the obvious replacement for when Alex finally steps down.
    He's charismatic, energetic, and already a known personality and a fan favorite.
    But most importantly, he knows the game inside and out.
    And I bet Jennings would accept the offer in a heartbeat. Jeopardy is obviously close to his heart. Plus the way the show is taped would still allow him time to pursue his writing and other interests, and be with his family.
    The biggest Final Jeopardy Answer is:
    "He's the person most suited to become the next host of Jeopardy".
    The Question is
    "Who is Ken Jennings?"
    And it's truly a no-brainer.
