Reddit Interviews Jeopardy! Champ Ken Jennings

The man has a great sense of humor, including his Reddit handle Watsonbitch, and most of his responses show a really great wit. This makes me like him even more.

Some of his choice answers:

Alex and I don’t get to hang out much due to the convoluted Jeopardy security requirements. I saw him at last year’s National Geographic Bee in DC (he hosts, I was doing research for my next book, Maphead, about geography geeks).

So I don’t know the guy real well. He’s a riddle wrapped in an enigma wrapped in a Perry Ellis suit.


Old people can’t keep their dry, lilac-scented hands off me. Man, do old people ever love Jeopardy. I can’t go anywhere in public where there might be old people, like Hallmark stores or cemeteries.

On his roommate being fantasy author Brandon Sanderson, for six-months.

Our other roommates were Brent Spiner, “Weird Al,” Kevin Smith, Stan Lee, 5/6 of Monty Python, and the lightsaber kid from that one video.

And one more, someone asked him to write a limerick for Reddit…

There once was a host named Trebek… I forget how it ends but YOUR MOTHER’S A WHORE!

Wait, I got it.

There once was a host named Trebek, Whose mustache was sexy as heck. It would have been weird If he’d grown a big beard, Like Conan, or Riker on Trek.
