Having 70 game-winning streak on the show, Jennings has become known as the master Jeopardy! player for his amazing memory, unparalleled buzzer technique, and the fact that he has won a record $2.52 million in winnings on the show.
A Seattle native who grew up in South Korea, Jennings watched Jeopardy! regularly on the US Armed Forces TV network, convinced that he could one day be a contestant. Now, with a winning streak that has made him a celebrity, this game show sensation has received much media coverage, having appeared on The Late Show to present Letterman's "Top 10 List" and, during his run, increased Jeopardy! ratings by 62 percent.
Formerly a member of Brigham Young University's College Bowl team in the 1990s, Jennings now writes and edits literature questions for the National Academic Quiz Tournament. Also an avid comic book and movie buff, Jennings's day job is as a software engineer at CHG, a healthcare placement firm.
Since his Jeopardy! streak ended, Ken has become a bestselling author. His books include Brainiac, about the phenomenon of trivia in American culture, Ken Jennings's Trivia Almanac, the biggest American trivia book ever assembled, Maphead, about his lifelong love of geography, and Because I Said So!, debunking parenting cliches. For children, he writes a series of Junior Genius Guides full of fun projects and amazing facts.
Ken hosted Stump the Master and Clued In for GSN Live and has appeared in ads for FedEx, Microsoft, Allstate, Cingular, IBM and H&R Block. He speaks about the importance of learning at college campuses and corporate events, and writes about all things trivial for a wide range of print and online publications. He has returned to quiz shows several times since his Jeopardy! streak, racking up three second-place finishes in Jeopardy! tournaments (once bested by the IBM supercomputer Watson). His lifetime Jeopardy!-related winnings total $3,522,700. He won GSN's Grand Slam tournament, which featured 16 ex-quiz show champs, and a half-million dollar prize on Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader'
