Who beat Ken Jennings?
Ken Jennings is the best player ever in Jeopardy! But after an unprecedented 74-game winning streak, he lost in a contest aired this evening. While I congratulate winning contestant Nancy Zerg, after seeing the episode I believe that Ken is a much stronger player and he simply didn’t play his best that episode. Ken has an amazing range of knowledge, good intuition, and lightning-fast reflexes on the signaling button. The fact that Ken is humble and charming is a bonus. I look forward to seeing him again next year in the Tournament of Champions.
