Jeopardy - the winning streak may end at 75 shows

There's reports floating around that ken may lose on 75th show, winning about 2.5million in the process... here's the news article.


Quote:
LOS ANGELES Maybe Ken Jennings doesn't really know everything.

A report posted yesterday says the software engineer brainiac had his "Jeopardy!" winning streak snapped during a show taped on Tuesday.

The report posted on T-V Week's Web site says Jennings was defeated in his 75th game and had won a total of about two and a half (m) million dollars in cash and prizes. It cites unidentified sources and says the show will air later this fall.

However, a spokesperson for the show told the site it won't disclose whether Jennings has actually lost yet.

He won the show that aired yesterday, his 41st straight win.

OK, that was a stupid headline... how many questions each game does the guy answer? I'd say he knows pretty much everything... even if he finally missed out (or was bribed to miss).

I don't know whether or not to believe that. There are some smarter, but not faster.

I agree with you guys, Ken's a machine, so they must have some guy who's faster at pressing the buzzer

I was just watching Jay Leno and he said that Ken lost today but the show doesn't air until sometime in October.

Win or lose the guy is good! I think he'll probably be invited back for the championship games they do every now and then. So he may have lost the streak, but he'll most likely add a few more games to his total eventually

That's amazing! I haven't watched Jeopardy for a while, but I assumed he must have lost. He's a rich man!

I'm a little confused about something though...

I don't follow Jeopardy on a regular basis but I always thought that you could win up to 5 episodes on the show and then you had to leave. Guess not, huh!

That 5 game and out rule ended at the start of last season. I'm sure he does loose eventually - he can't keep winning forever - and 74 wins is pretty darn good in my book. I'll be interested to see who it was/is that beats him out....
