I don't know how many of you watch Jeopardy. If you watched it last night you would have seen Ken Jennings actually lose a game after playing 75 times! He racked up $2,522,700!!!
Here are some more stats on this incredible player:

Correct Answers: 2,642

Total Net Gain on Daily Doubles: $421,199

Pct. of Games Locked Up after Double J!: .867 (65 of 75)

High Game: $75,000 (July 23)

Low Game: $8,799 (Nov. 9)

Avg. Daily Winnings: $34,064 (through last win Nov. 29)

Number of days from Jennings' first appearance (June 2) to his last (Nov. 30) :181

Nov. 4: Day Jennings broke television's all-time winnings record, $2,247,000 (topping the combined $2,205,900 Dr. Olmstead won on Millionaire and on Jeopardy!, May 25-27, 1994).

Nov. 30: Day of Ken Jennings' defeat, $14,401-$8,799, to Nancy Zerg, of Ventura, Cal.

I was most surprised that he lost to a GIRL! (Just kidding)

I heard on WNCI on Monday that he was going to lose on Tuesday. They even played the audio of him losing.

The funny thing was that I knew the answer to the question and Mr. Jennings did not. Since the show isn't live, I couldn't let him know telepathically what the answer was. No matter.

I should try to get on Jeopardy! I need a few mil.

My luck I would have a horrible day and not even get to compete for Final Jeopardy because I would be negative after Double Jeopardy.

Oh, well. I will just continue to play from the comfort of my own home.
