They Killed Ken!

kwings writes "SF Gate (via the AP) is reporting that your pal, Ken Jennings has been beaten after his 75th(!) game. I fully expect Mr. Trebek to hold a wake, or to keep calling the champion 'Ken' for the rest of the season. :) Since they're only up to airing game 41, it will be an interesting few months (or 34 shows)."

They are bastards for putting this on the main page.

Some of us like to be surprised by things. Now slashdot has decided to take it upon themselves to ruin the next 30 shows for their readers that have been watching Jeopardy.

Thank you oh so much /.

Please take this off the main page or reword the article so no one else has to have their enjoyment ruined.

Now we complain that we didn't want to see the news!

(I'm actually 100% behind you on this, im not even American, and have never seen the show, but giving out spoilers on the main page is just bad m'kay!)

Well, they say (again in the article) that the most recent aired show was his 41st win, and that he had $1,380,661.

Now, if this news is right that his final curtain closes on show 75, its roughly on course.

Are you saying he just gave up? If he's no longer on the show then he must have lost. Slashdot fucked up huge on this one. Thanks for letting me know.

Jearil (154455) | more than 9 years ago | (#10199549)

I agree with the parent,

It does seem a bit rude to those of us who watch Jeopardy as if it were a national sport. I know some people who would be horridly offended if you were to tell them the results of every football/baseball/basketball/soccar/nascar/rugby/w ater polo/cricket/volleyball/bullfighting .... etc. before the event was ever aired on TV. It sort of takes away from watching these things when you know the end result.

I know that for the whole last season I'd feel myself compelled to gravitate towards the TV whenever I heard that Ken was on... even if I was in the middle of something else, I found I couldn't concentrate until I watched the damn show. Mostly it was because I wanted to see if that night would be the last night for Ken or not. A few times there was at least a chance he could lose, and finding out by watching was the big event of the evening if nothing else was going on.

So please keep away from the spoilers.. I'm still hoping he's going to go on until Trebek gets sick of him and retires from the job :)

Anonymous Coward | more than 9 years ago | (#10199635)

Jeopardy just won't be as fun to watch after he's gone. Ken's converted Jeopardy from an interesting game-show to a serious spectator sport in my house. It just won't be the same.

No. There are laws regarding this sort of stuff. In Australia I believe it's the lotteries commision.

The Genesis Capsule crashed in Utah... Ken Jennings is from Utah and is a Mormon... Kenny from South Park was created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, one of which is a former Mormon...

After taxes that will be approx. $380,661. His agent, who mysteriously appeared overnight and has not had a chance to speak directly with Mr. Jennings, reports that the impromptu star will be regaining the $1 indirectly through endorsements for life insurance and denture adhesives.

After the endorsements have been completed he will be closeted in the mountains practicing by playing the Jeopardy computer and board games (which he still had to buy himself) until the Tournament of Champions is held. He will also be preparing a few choice remarks for Sean Connery in Mr. Jennings upcoming appearance on SNLs "Celebrity Jeopardy".

Ken's winning streak has been fantastic for Jeopardy's ratings (up 35% from the same time last season, last I heard). This could be just another ploy to try and drive the ratings up even further.

PhuCknuT (1703) | more than 9 years ago | (#10199640)

I don't think this would increase ratings, if anything it will decrease them. Alot of people watch just to see if he'll lose that day, if they know he's gonna win for another month or 2, they will be less likely to watch (except the day he's suppoosed to lose that is).

Re:Don't count on it (2, Insightful)

Metallic Matty (579124) | more than 9 years ago | (#10199646)

While you raise an interesting point, seems kind of like the wrong analysis IMHO. If this was indeed a ploy to raise ratings, its a horrible one. Consider, you KNOW that Ken won't lose for another thirty four games, and then after that he's done. What incentive to you have to watch, knowing that he'll win every night? If anything, this would hurt their ratings. (At least until this 75th game, where he will or will not be defeated, and then we find out if this was true or just a rumor.)

Xentax (201517) | more than 9 years ago | (#10199552)

Assuming this speculation is true, the real question is "how".

I mean, I'm sure even Ken would/will/did get tired of playing sooner or later. 75 games sounds like a nice round number to stop on; he set the single-game score record with something right around 75,000, as I recall (maybe even 75k even?).

So, it'll be interesting (to me) to see if he more or less quit on purpose - either just not coming back by choice, or obviously throwing the game to lose.

What makes Ken so amusing? I don't have cable so I can't check it out for myself.

I like the idea of contestants (like Ken) taking Trebek's spot. Maybe just for a show or two. However, Trebek just reads the question and the answer, so there really isn't much required (other than presentation, rules monitoring, keeping things going, acting stuff, etc.).

Anyone know background information more on Ken too? Does he just ingest everything he reads...has no life...or just is super smart. I read about a kid that won the geography bee and he attributed it to his parent's rule of only educational video games. Something I would like for my own kids.

How could another season of the same guy winning over and over again possibly be interesting?

Never heard of a spoiler warning?!?!?! (1)

Gee.... thanks Slashdot! Guess there's no reason for me to watch jeopardy anymore. First you tell me that the Lone Gunmen are dead hours before the show aires and now this! Thanks for nothing.....

Oh Puhleeze! (1)

Guys? Seriously? If you didn't read it on /. you would have heard about it somewhere else. This was big news, and as such, people are going to report it. And besides, Jeopardy isn't something worth getting your panties in a wad.

I'm not really surprised that he was beaten. I would think that after 75 games of jeapardy with nothing but wins (not even really any close calls) one would get tired of it. I mean think of it, if they had taped them day after day in a row, it would still have been over two straight months of taping! Even an uber-nerd can only take so much geekiness.

It seems to me that he wasn't so much "beat" as he was "leaving while it still was fun".

The what where now? (-1, Flamebait)

I feel like burning some karma.
Who the hell is Ken? And what game are you talking about?
That's not news for nerds, stuff that matters. That's news for americans, stuff that really doesn't matter.
In related news, Barbie needs a new boyfriend.

Thanks for the spoiler, you mother fuckers (-1, Redundant)

Jesus Christ, just when I thought /. editors couldn't get any stupid, they go and spoil -- what -- 8 weeks of TV viewing?

Here's a hint - this is supposed to be news for nerds. Nerds watch Jeopardy.

Fuck, you guys are assholes.

The 75th game eh? He wasn't beaten...he was bored! (1)

Really....

He lost after winning 75 games. Anyone who understands genius realizes that he did not lose. He simply was bored and allowed someone else a shot.
