Ken Jennings

Greatest Jeopardy! Player of All Time
Jeopardy Co-Host and Best-Selling Author

Ken Jennings is the unparalleled quiz show champion, celebrated as the Greatest Jeopardy! Player ever. Born in Seattle, he clinched fame in 2004 with a stunning 75-game streak and $2.52 million winnings on Jeopardy!, still unbeaten. He cemented his legacy by defeating champs Holzhauer and Rutter in 2020, earning another $1 million and the “Greatest of All Time” title. Now a Jeopardy! Co-Host alongside Mayim Bialik, he’s a former software engineer from Utah with a remarkable journey.

Jennings’ passion for trivia blossomed during his years in South Korea and Singapore, relying on Armed Forces Network’s Jeopardy! broadcasts. Though his dream dimmed, he rediscovered it at Brigham Young University, captaining the quiz bowl team and pursuing his Jeopardy! aspiration. Post-victory, Jennings appeared on numerous TV shows, authored 13 books, and stars on The Chase, Master Minds, and the Omnibus podcast. A sought-after speaker, he enlightens audiences on education, AI, and more, sharing riveting tales from the Jeopardy! stage.
