View Full Version : The Comeuppance of Ken Jennings

11-29-2004, 09:51 PM
Rumor has it that Ken's last day on Jeopardy is tomorrow. How will he leave the show?

The rumor also says that he will be going into FJ ahead, but that one of the contestants will get a right answer and will be exactly $1 ahead of him. Ken Jennings will get the wrong answer and drop to below $10K. The winner has something like $14401 (off the top of my head) and is named Sharon. All rumors of course, but they certainly seem credible.

The supposed final jeopardy category/question is this:

Subject: Companies and Corporations. The Answer: This company has a workforce of 17000 people, whose average working year is only 4 months long.

The answer is: Who is Santa Claus Inc.

I think it would be great if he were to retire, but he's been looking like he's bored lately, so it's just as likely he'll slip up and lose. He's actually been wrong on FJ a number of times, but he's usually so far ahead it doesn't matter.

Either way, his place in TV and Trivia history is assured.

If this is true, I can't wait to see the look on his face.

Inaccurate, sir, but good reply anyway. /images/graemlins/wink.gif

Yeah, he'll probably look happy as a pig in sh*t. The past few nights he's looked positively disgusted that he's still winning.

Nice call (if it's right, but it SOUNDS right).

My first thought was the IRS, but that wouldn't be a company. My mind didn't make it to H&amp;R Block within 30 seconds. In fact, my mind left taxes entirely, and was pondering Christmas when the clock ran out on me.

You mean to tell me that dude from this summer is still going? damn.

I found this audio link (http://www.mjmorningshow.com/cc-common/feeds/view.php?feed_id=263&amp;feed=/mainfeed.html&amp;instance=1&amp;article_id=11280) which is apparently the sound of Ken Jennings losing his final jeopardy question. Check it out if you're interested.
