Jeopardy! fans admit they refuse to watch humble Ryan Long. The rideshare driver from Philadelphia, PA is the current champ on the quiz show. So far, he’s won 11 consecutive games. He’s on his way to breaking new records as he continues to make big wagers.
However, some are disappointed with Ryan’s takeover. They think he has an unfair disadvantage over his fellow contestants. Host Ken Jennings just revealed that it’s must-see TV. He broke his silence on the game show ever since he announced his departure earlier this month.
Ken Jennings supports champ, Ryan Long
On Monday, May 30, Jeopardy! alum Ken Jennings shared his thoughts about Ryan Long. He broke his silence since he announced his departure from the game show. Jennings has shared his travels around the country. However, he’s fascinated with Ryan Long’s current reign.
Jennings shared an original tweet from Jeopardy! that reads, “Will Ryan Long join the Leaderboard of Legends tonight?”
The clip shows an episode of Jeopardy! from Friday, May 27. The camera pans over to Ryan. Then it cuts over to fellow host Mayim Bialik, who says:
“It was an exciting end to Friday’s game as our champion, Ryan Long, came from behind in Final Jeopardy! to secure his 11th straight victory. With a win today, he could find himself on our Jeopardy! Leaderboard of Legends, titled for 10th place all-time for most consecutive games won in regular-season play. It’s quite remarkable that Ryan could be our 4th player this season alone to reach that milestone.”
