this is Jeopardy!

I just got done watching Jeopardy. I used to watch it consistently when I was a teenager, but haven't in quite some time, until recently that is. In case you're not up to speed, this dude has won like 19 games in a row and a total of $622,000. That's amazing. My extraordinary math skills tell me that he's earning an average of nearly $33,000 per show. In all the years I've watched Jeopardy, it's not often that someone gets over $30,000. But to do it almost 20 times in a row? That's insane. This guy knows fucking everything. From rap music to poetry to computer science. He's a Mormon too. I don't know what that has to do with anything, but I'm sure it's relevant somewhere, somehow. Alex Trebek is now joking about the guy's longevity at every turn, with witty banter like, "Good evening folks, welcome to the Alex and Ken show, ha ha ha ha." Is it just me, or is Alex Trebek one cocky dude? He's clearly been the boss in his own little world for too long. He's like 65 and his wife is roughly twenty years younger. He's Canadian too! Again, relevant to somebody.

Directly following Jeopardy is Wheel Of Fortune, so I've been watching that too. The people on the show are usually quite stupid. Some of the answers are so obvious. I remember a time as a child when people used to tune in just to see what Vanna White would wear. How strange. She actually doesn't look that much different now than she did in 1985. Has anyone seen her in Playboy? Here's a picture.

I can't believe I just typed all of this shit.

the reason he is winning so much money is because they doubled the dollar amouns per round to compete with shows like Millionaire and shit.

true, but he has still won 19 games in a row. that amazing in itself.

no, the reason he is doing this is because they changed the rules...it used to be if you won 5 days in a row, they gave you a car and then the next show had 3 new contestants...now I guess you can just kick ass indiscriminately

the real reason he's winning so much is because he is actually a time traveler from the future the ken jennings conspiracy.
