    I don't believe that was the case. I think it was just a 5 game limit. That ended right before Ken started his run.

    How long until Jeopardy brings in a ringer to take him out? Maybe a nice Mormon lady named Jenn Kennings?

    I read Ken's book years ago and he said after like 30 episodes they had a different employee do the lights after Alex reads the questions to try and throw off his rhythm.

    Jeopardy is definitely loving this, they are having the highest syndication ratings in years.

    That said he was just on SVP the other night, and deflected a few questions that I thought were odd, since season 35 is finished taping. I'm wondering if he is still going? Taping ended last week I believe, and doesn't pick back up until Sept. If he is indeed still going he will be at 62 wins at the end of this season (12 shy of Ken Jennings record)

    That wasnít what SVP was asking. He asked if he had a category he didnít want to see, and deflected it and answered with categories he would like to see.

    I don't think his dollar total is sustainable. That'd be madness.

    In a runaway scenario, he still bets "low" enough in Final Jeopardy that even if he got it wrong, the next player still wouldn't catch him, even if they bet it all and got it right.

    For him to lose, it would most likely come from betting big on a daily double and getting it wrong, or not getting either of the daily doubles in the second round to get that huge margin going into Final Jeopardy.

    I do not see him losing for at least a few weeks. His percentage on Daily Doubles and Final Jeopardies has to be close to 95 percent, if not more. It is going to take a lot of bad breaks for him to lose. He's getting at LEAST 2 million.

    I feel like if he had lost it would have been leaked by a bunch of major media outlets by now. When Ken Jennings lost, in the pre-social media age, every major news organization was reporting it that afternoon. I think all of Jennings records are going to be shattered.
