    he's finished, poor guy
     
  4. The unbeatable Jeopardy guy. Didn't he finish with something like 2.5 million in winnings? See, it does pay to be smart!!

    Rock on

    I just caught the end of the show and Ken's off! See. It pays to just start flipping through channels. :smug:

    It was taped a while ago yes. It leaked out back in September that he lost on his 75th show, so it's really no surprise. Unfortunitly I don't have cabel so I could not see it, anywhere I can see the video of him losing?

    yes, it was rumoured on ESPN (why on a sports channel?) in September that they had already filmed the show on which he lost.

    I would assume they film bunches at once in order to save on money, hotel room costs, and airfare. Makes sense anyway

    So, who beat him? Or, are we looking at another Herbert Stempel here?

    Herbert Stempel? (He was one of those 5-day champions, right?)

    Some lady name Nancy beat him. Ken didn't help by losing both daily double questions in double Jeopardy though.

    I'd guess at this point he might be happy to go home. Of course, he has a touch over $2.5M to go home with. :)

    I was referring to the scandal, not his actual defeat, chum.
