What is Ken Jennings?

So right now, I am thinking about Jeopardy and how Ken Jenny is famous from that show. I wonder how many games of Jeopardy he actually won? I was thinking about researching him later to understand how the heck he won all those Jeopardy games in a row.

hi (1)

So I just researched the real Ken Jennings. I’m not sure who Ken Jenny is in above paragraph^. Turns out he is from Edmonds, Washington! I could literally get in my car and drive to Ken Jennings’ hometown right now! Edmonds is south of me. It’s located in Snohomish County.

So Ken Jennings was born on May 23, which puts him on the Taurus/Gemini cusp. Sometimes I pretend like I know what I’m talkin’ about when I say that, but I’m just a big phony, don’t listen to me. I just found out that he still lives in the Seattle area so that means right now, in this moment, I could hop in my car to Ken Jennings’ house and do a real live interview. I wonder if he is vegan?

Ken Jennings is 41 years old and a graduate of Brigham Young University, which means he’s Mormon. My first thoughts when I encounter a Mormon are “Soooo…. are you a good Mormon, or a bad Mormon?” There is no such thing as a balanced Mormon. A Mormon is either: A. Buttoning up their polo or B. Fucking everyone in town without a condom.

Believe me, I grew up around them.

hehe

Wow! Turns out that Ken Jennings grew up in Seoul, South Korea!

I was just in Seoul, South Korea this past winter. Actually, turns out I’m a big liar and I’m just trying to make myself sound cool… I was just in the airport. You know what really just irks me? The fact that I can get a Dunkin’ Doughnuts strawberry colata in Seoul, South Korea, but I can’t get it nearly anywhere in the Pacific Northwest!? Honestly, I love Dunkin’ Doughnuts so much sometimes I don’t even care if it’s a major contributor to the idiocracy that’s going on. I’d drink a colata everyday if I had the chance! That’s the east coast in me. Dad’s from Boston. Sometimes you can tell, but now there’s a whole lotta Idaho in him. Now we’re just a bunch of rednecks who love Dunkin’ Doughnuts! I know a lot of people are going to read that and think that I’m racist for saying redneck. But I grew up in redneck country, I think that gives me the rights to use that word.

pissin

So Ken Jennings is a Mormon whose life destiny was to win over $3,000,000 on Jeopardy and be defeated by Nancy Zerg on the 75th episode.

This is the question that ended his life destiny:

So after Nancy Zerg destroyed Ken Jennings on his 75th episode of Jeopardy, Jennings failed an audition for “Who Wants to Be A Millionaire!”

That’s about the last thing I ever really want to know about Ken Jennings, really.

Happy Friday!

  4. un 4t yoo (n) ately, I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER KEN JENNINGS because
    my mom had been ill a long long while and was tired of languishing in the hospital and wanted to come home so I went over for dinner and then she had her “usual bedtime scotch” and I drank whatever and we watched K J set the record on the t.v. mom died that night, peacefully, in her own bed with her cats there also.
    yeah, this doesn’t have a lot to do with KJ but this/that is my story and

    1. Wow- interesting story, thank you for sharing. Your mother passed away the same night he was defeated by Nancy? The planets must have been off! Thank you for reading, I hope you got a laugh and a few good memories of your mother from the post. 🙂

    1. Haha, thanks Dina! Have you never watched Jeopardy? You should. A friend from college saw this post and it turns out her best friend is neighbors with Ken Jennings so she tried to get her friend to show Ken this post. I hope he got it! But I haven’t heard any comment from him…. Haha! Thanks for reading!

    1. Hi! Thanks for the feedback! The comics are so fun to make. I create them in Microsoft Paint and I only use a mouse. My brother in law got me and nice drawing pad for Christmas, but they just don’t look the same… Haha I laugh and laugh making them… It’s so much fun! Can you send me the link to some of your work?
