Ken Jennings to face other Jeopardy champs in 'super tournament'

By The Associated Press
December 29, 2004

LOS ANGELES — If winning more than $2.5 million (?1.8 million) wasn't enough, "Jeopardy!" whiz Ken Jennings will have a shot at winning an additional $2 million (?1.5 million) — but the competition will be tougher this time around.

A "Super Tournament" will pit Jennings in a final match against two survivors of a competition among nearly 150 past five-time winners, producers of the game show announced Tuesday. The show used to have a limit of five shows for champions.

Host Alex Trebek called the tournament the "quest for Ken."

"Ever since Ken started his amazing run, people have been speculating on how some of the past `Jeopardy!' players would do against him," Trebek said in a statement. "We're answering that question."

Jennings, too, was anxious about the challenge.

"I can't wait to see who I'll be up against in the finals," he said.

Jennings earned $2,520,700 (?1,852,366) after a 74-game winning streak. He was beaten by California real estate agent Nancy Zerg.

The matches will begin airing in February or March, and the finals will air in May, said "Jeopardy!" publicist Jeff Ritter.

The third-place winner will receive $250,000 (?183,700) and the second-place winner, $500,000 (?367,430).

Well, you just knew they'd bring him back. Plus I'd really like to see this happen so that someone actually beats him that isn't a fluke.

But if Rosie Perez isn't in it, I won't watch. :-b

Aw why not? I bet him and Sydney Dean could team up with Big Ernie McKracken for a big bowling hustle.

whoa . gotta a couple of movie buffs over here. :-b

ok. what if Ernie McKracken went to Japan and made whisky commercials? Would he make enough money so he wouldn't have to hustle anymore and because of that Mr. Dean wouldn't lose Gloria Clemente's money and she would be able to go against Ken? :-B

You just blew my mind with that paradox.

Hmm, I'm confused. You're aware that Big Ern is Bill Murray's character from the movie Kingpin( also starring Harrelson), right? And Sydney Deane was Wesley Snipes' character in White Men Can't Jump. Woody Harrelson played Billy Hoyle.
