Rumor has it he's gay! Or mormon, ya its the latter. So they'd have to wed him first, no?
2004-07-14 03:14:14 AM  
Had the person who submitted this seen the guy? Eligibility revoked, he should consider himself lucky if he gets *one*.

He still looks like an albino. (Powder) Jeopardy has dumbed down the game. How do I know? I can actually answer most of the questions.
2004-07-14 03:17:06 AM  

It's not that hard to answer the questions when you're given the answers ahead of time, now is it?

2004-07-14 03:19:41 AM  
Tried out for College Jeopardy once, missed the cut by 3 questions. The tryouts are tougher than the actual show, or at least that's what I keep saying to myself. But on the plus side, I got free snacks and beverages. SUCKERS!!!!
2004-07-14 03:19:41 AM  
If I'm thinking correctly, the headline is a play on a quote from the movie 'Office Space', wherein Deidrich Bader explains of what he would do if he had one million dollars.
2004-07-14 03:20:28 AM  
jeopardy's getting crazy ratings because of this.....hmmm...i wonder.....
2004-07-14 03:21:52 AM  
yeah pretty much all fark headlines are 'plays' of quotes from office space.
2004-07-14 03:27:13 AM  

You lost the Double Jeopardy. You now have $200.

The correct response was: "What is Office Space?"
2004-07-14 03:28:56 AM  
i was watching today and my dad goes "you know, i would love to see this guy get over a million dollars, but i'd love it even MORE if he lost". and i think that about sums it up, people love to see others fail, even if they come out with just under a million dollars.
2004-07-14 03:29:54 AM  
well at least he isn't having to go and buy lottery tickets and on another plus note, someone out there will either see him or hear about it and he will get some kind of major endorsement. either that it will be discovered he has a tiny earbud inserted and someone in the audience is feeding him the questions to the answers.

/cool if there was frequency crossover:
"What is....10-79, 10-79 shots fired need backup"
2004-07-14 03:32:10 AM  
I'd bang him for 100k.

2004-07-14 03:33:46 AM  
If I were him...

I'd do nothing.
2004-07-14 03:34:32 AM  
I'd mark if he were gay after all the Mormon talk...
2004-07-14 03:35:04 AM  
Yeah but I could beat him at a Super Mario Bros. speed run.
2004-07-14 03:36:40 AM  
Just call me Ken "Sweeps" Jennings.. What I want is Alex Trebek showing me how much Visine gets rid of the "red"...

A golf clap for the submitter.

"....An enchanting blend of Office Space and the Church of Latter-Day Saints...."

heh... I'd agree if I did not think this guy was living in his mom's basement having his wife tutor him (as he readily admits he did) for the contest. He's a human sponge of crapilogical knowledge. So, am I. Since they changed the format, I can actually question 50% of the answers. I still remember him saying "coporations are evil"... and a bit more, very forcefully. Alek was very uncomfortable with his statement, it was good times.

How did alek survive his truck crash? It's obvious he made a pact with the devil.
2004-07-14 03:41:37 AM  
Hell, I'd bang him for 100k.

2004-07-14 03:45:27 AM  
Speed run.

Amen to that. Suck it, Genesis!
2004-07-14 03:53:28 AM  
This guy wouldn't last 5 minutes on Ninja Jeopardy.
2004-07-14 03:53:40 AM  
I could take him...
2004-07-14 03:55:25 AM  
Good for Ken. At leat it pays to be a geek.
2004-07-14 03:59:33 AM  
Suck it, Trebek!
2004-07-14 04:01:56 AM  
shiat, I'd bang him for 100k

2004-07-14 04:04:38 AM  
They have been putting up some real dumbasses against him lately, and some of the questions seem almost written for him.

I remember one episode, he ran an entire category on comic book heroes, and Alex even commented on his impressive comic book knowledge, and Jennings admitted to be a huge comic book geek.

The very next episode, the Final Jeopardy! question (or answer, if you want nitpick) was about Superman & Lois Lane.

You'd think they would have substituted another question just to throw the cannon fodder a bone.
2004-07-14 04:05:44 AM  
by "do it" I assume you mean marry?
2004-07-14 04:07:13 AM

Peter Gibbons: What would you do if you had a million dollars?
Lawrence: I'll tell you what I'd do, man, two chicks at the same time, man.
Peter Gibbons: That's it? If you had a million dollars, you'd do two chicks at the same time?
Lawrence: Damn straight. I always wanted to do that, man. And I think if I had a million dollars I could hook that up, cause chicks dig a dude with money.
Peter Gibbons: Well, not all chicks.
Lawrence: Well the kind of chicks that'd double up on a dude like me do.
Peter Gibbons: Good point.
Lawrence: Well what about you now? what would you do?
Peter Gibbons: Besides two chicks at the same time?
Lawrence: Well yeah.
Peter Gibbons: Nothing.
Lawrence: Nothing, huh?
Peter Gibbons: I'd relax, I would sit on my ass all day, I would do nothing.
Lawrence: Well you don't need a million dollars to do nothing, man. Just take a look at my cousin, he's broke, don't do shiat.
2004-07-14 04:10:27 AM  
I think he is kinda cute....nerds turn me on.

I'd submit to it....

/pasty white chick
2004-07-14 04:14:30 AM  
I watched it, and I swear, as an 18 year old, I answered or guessed correctly on at least 70% of the questions...

I think they handed him that million dollars, but the Final Jepoardy question was tougher than shiat so that he couldn't bust that record

either that or they just gave up on finding stuff he didn't know
2004-07-14 04:18:01 AM  
I bet Dave Chappel could make a game show he'd lose.

My version:
Sex Toys
Drug Slang
Women's Makeup
More Sex Toys
2004-07-14 04:29:39 AM  
And to boot hes a tea totaler! Dude is dry, but he knows all the drink mixes. I wonder just how "dry" he is.
2004-07-14 04:32:27 AM  
Jeopardy, in the past few years, has been trying to revamp their image. I remember when they started advertising about how "cool" they were now, and how the questions (answers, whatever) were a lot hipper. That was maybe three years ago. I have a feeling even that novelty wore off a bit. Farker guitarladdy put it better than I could...

2004-07-14 04:34:51 AM  
hey now, i've never made $1M (well, I had it on paper, for a while, but didn't have access to it until it was worth almost nothing), and i've been with two chicks at once several times. :P
2004-07-14 04:38:45 AM  
he can now pay cash for an apartment in NYC.
2004-07-14 04:46:54 AM  
I'd let him bang you for 100k.
2004-07-14 04:50:22 AM  

Because something I said somehow implied that I had never seen the movie, or recognized where the reference came from. What I was implying was that even with a million bucks, he'd never find two chicks willing to participate in a threesome with him.

You better take anal bum covers for $1000 next time.
2004-07-14 04:58:46 AM  
but only one month's rent.
2004-07-14 05:11:36 AM  
Whatever happened to that rule where champions could only stay on for five days?
2004-07-14 05:20:29 AM  
I'd bang him for 100k.


I'd bang him for 500!

2004-07-14 05:22:25 AM  
How did alek survive his truck crash? It's obvious he made a pact with the devil.

You're thinking of Bob Barker.
2004-07-14 05:32:24 AM  
Let's see.. he's blonde.. he goes to BYU.. chances are he'll use all that money to fund a family of like 30 children.
2004-07-14 05:35:44 AM  
Well-read Baron: They got rid of that rule at the begining of this season.

As others have said, I think Jeopardy is easier these days, but the key seems to be that this guy can beat everyone on the buzzer. I don't think his opponents have necessarily been too stupid, just too slow.
2004-07-14 05:41:15 AM  
If anyone has not said it already, he is mormon, so he has to win 1.5 million, because the church is going to take 75% of his cash before he or even the guvment sees it.
2004-07-14 05:47:49 AM  
Or mormon, ya its the latter. So they'd have to wed him first, no?

Well, assuming we're not talking about the polygamy thing, Mormon chicks don't drink, but they do put out.

And I could imagine chicks going for him. Ken is crushing his enemies, and driving them before him. In fact, he even looks just like Conan.

Conan O'Brian, that is.
2004-07-14 05:48:03 AM  
jeeze - I expected the prem1ere p0st to say:

farkin' A

So, I guess I'll say it.

farkin' A

oh and

"Whatever happened to that rule where champions could only stay on for five days?"

UH OH, someone didn't RTFA
2004-07-14 06:23:07 AM  
What is amazing is that he has not shot himself in the foot. IMO, he will pretty much dominate until another former College Bowl player will go up against him or he gets bored with it all.

The questions are harder in College Bowl than in Jeopardy.
