14 Sep 2020
One of the winningest game show contestants of all time, APB speaker Ken Jennings is joining host Alex Trebek as a consulting producer on Jeopardy! this season. Champion Ken Jennings will "present his own special video categories, develop projects, assist with contestant outreach, and serve as a general ambassador for the show,” Sony said. His first video category airs Sept. 15
Due to the pandemic, this season will look a little different, with increased space between contestants and a lot of social distancing. Dubbed “the Michael Jordan of trivia, the Seabiscuit of geekdom,” Jennings is part folk hero, part pop icon, and a perennial crowd pleaser. Whether recounting his famous match with IBM computer Watson, answering audience questions about Jeopardy! or hosting trivia contests, Jennings treats audiences to an unforgettable event with “the King of Trivia Nation.”
