I have the best fans ever. Just wanted to put it out there!

I'm really disappointed that all my previous entries throughout the airing of the show have broken links to the pictures now! Sorry for all the red X's! Hope you don't mind!

If anyone wants to know anything about my life or what I'm involved in now, please feel free to comment!

Hey everyone! I'm soooo sorry I haven't posted in so long. The wife has kept me busy, and by busy I mean incredibly happy and blessed! I'm sure a lot of you have heard about my open letter to Jeopardy, and if you'd like to read it, it's right hereCollapse ).

Leave some love!

An update! [22 Dec 2005|05:45pm]
[ mood | creative ]

Hey guys! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas holiday season!!

Here's a gracious comment about me in a review for the new Jeopardy: An Inside Look DVD that is GREAT for the holidays!

Ken Jennings, wow...what can be said about Ken Jennings? He created a huge buzz about Jeopardy!, and probably brought the show viewers that had long-left the format. I know I tuned in to see a few episodes with him, and that was back when he had won 30 or 40 games in a row. It's a bit sad to see him lose in episode 75, and with such an easy question! Ken, Ken, Ken...

And look at this AMAZING new board game! I expect all of my Friends out there to buy this!

Oh, and no, you can't beat Ken. But if anyone is in the Murray, Utah area, let's make a date to play it sometime!

Go ahead and leave some love in the comments!

I also have a special shoutout to rq_version3. I've been banned for a long time now and I miss you guys! If anyone is feeling nice plz lift the ban! Thanks so much!


With care,

Where did my LJ best friend jen_kennings go? He didn't even say goodbye. I shall miss him forever.

Well, I've been taking a long break. I think I've needed the rest! Everything in my life is going smoothly and I have to thank Jeopardy! for a lot of it! And of course - my fans! What would I do without all of you?

Much love!

Despite having a cold and fever, "Jeopardy!" champion Ken Jennings enthusiastically defended trivia and spoke in support of life-long learning last Wednesday.

Between June and November of 2004, Jennings won 74 straight games on the television game show "Jeopardy!" Jennings took home prize money totaling $3,022,700; $2,522,700 for his initial 75 game run, and $500,000 in the "Jeopardy! Ultimate Tournament of Champions."

Being the biggest winner in television game show history has made Jennings into an instant celebrity, but he still remains very humble and approachable.

The Henry W. Bloch School of Business and Public Administration could not resist hosting Jennings since the question that stumped him has a UMKC connection. The answer that ended Jennings' winning streak was "Most of this firm's 70,000 seasonal white-collar employees work only four months a year." The correct response: "What is H&R Block?"

The Bloch School has a partnership with Henry Bloch, co-founder and chairman of H&R Block.

The evening consisted of Jennings' presentation, a question and answer session, and a mock "Jeopardy!" game titled after Jennings' own board game, "Can You Beat Ken?"

"We thought it would be fun to have Ken. He has a wonderful message...which is lifelong learning," a representative of the Bloch School said.

Jennings asked everyone to forgive him for having a cold, then went right into how he did not think trivia had to be defended until he played "Jeopardy!"

"The t-word is forbidden on the set," he said. "'Jeopardy!' dislikes the word trivia because I'm guessing they don't want their show to seem trivial...I think things can be trivial and serious at the same time...There's a value in this kind of knowledge."

NEW GAME SHOW [04 Sep 2005|02:03am]
Just so everyone knows, I'm going to be hosting a game show this fall on Comedy Central.
Hope everyone is looking forward to it!

[ mood | depressed ]

Sometimes I regret going on Jeopardy.
I mean, sure, the fame, glory, and women are a huge plus.
And my wife isn't complaining now that we're on vacation all the time.
But it's the only thing I will ever be remembered for!
Everyone will always know me as the "know-it-all" from TV.
I want to be known for my outstanding good looks (I think this is being quite noticed, however).
I want to be known for... well... we'll leave that one a secret.
I hope I can become more than just that guy from TV.
Thanks for caring, everyone.

Hey everyone! Thanks for all the support!

I won't be on Jeopardy! for the next two weeks because of the annual College Championship. Tune in, though - it'll be great!

In the meantime, read up about me on my new, official WIKIPEDIA ENTRY! Yep, I'm in an online encylopedia. Pretty neat, huh?

Will you leave me an anonymous comment(s) here?

Congratulate me, tell me I'm sexy, compliment me, comment on my good looks, or even on my fantastic wit and personality! Oh, or you can say something negative, but I don't know why you'd do that!


I promise I'll reply to every comment!
