‘Jeopardy!’ Ken Jennings Heads To Another Game Show, Why?

Game Shows, Jeopardy!, News

As beloved as Ken Jennings is as a host, he also has a list of accolades attached to his name. Flaunting a 74-game Jeopardy! winning streak, the game show host recently talked of his somewhat odd bucket list. With the ‘Jeopardy! Greatest of All Time’ laurel awarded to this quick-witted champion, his aspirations aren’t necessarily typical.

In a tweet last month, the 48-year-old talked about his wish and stated, “I’m aware that I have a very weird and specific bucket list, but this was a biggie: I get to play on the next season of Pyramid!”

The $100,000 Pyramid Season 6 premiered on July 10. This season brought several known names and renowned celebrities such as Seinfeld stars Wayne Knight and Jason Alexander. Moreso, the show also welcomed Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn.

Others that made an appearance on the show include names like:

  • Cedric the Entertainer
  • Tayshia Adams & Matt James from The Bachelor
  • D’Arcy Carden from The Good Place
  • Rosie O’Donnell (Comedian)
  • Amanda Kloots, host at The Talk

Ken is set to appear on the July 24 episode, where he will be up against Ross Mathews, who is the co-host of The Drew Barrymore Show.

From The $10,000 Pyramid to The $100,000 Pyramid

For the unversed, The $100,000 Pyramid is a game show where two teams of two compete in a game of word association. Each of these contenders gets a celebrity partner and there is an exchange of clues to guess the right answer before the timer runs out. Finally, the team that manages to bag the highest score gets to compete in the ‘Winners Circle’ with the top prize of $100,000.

The show is hosted by Michael Strahan, the co-anchor for Good Morning America. It has had multiple iterations in the years it has been running. In 1973, it started with The $10,000 Pyramid and was hosted by Dick Clark, as reported by Deseret News.

Over the years, the monetary prize associated with the game show has jumped to a higher number. However, the premise has stayed the same.

Is Ken Jennings Jeopardy!’s New Permanent Host?

Between Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings, fans have mostly sided with the latter favoring his hosting style. With Jeopardy! Season 38 soon to conclude, fans are wondering who will be the game show’s permanent host. However, the makers are yet to make any official announcement. A decision is most likely expected by the end of July after the taping of Season 39 kicks off.

  1. We are hoping that Mayim Bialik will be the permanent host of Jeopardy. She is great as the temporary host, has a great personality, especially with the contestants.

      1. No! Jennings is an arrogant NERD and does not play well with others. He seems to think the cameras should stay on him! IF he is chosen as permanent host, I will NEVER watch Jeopardy again!

      2. I agree. Ken is hard to watch and he is so insulting to some of the contestants. Not a host that anyone I know likes to watch. Arrogant.

  2. People have made rude and hateful commits about Ken Jennings hosting Jeopardy, so I don’t blame him for leaving!

  3. I hope ken Jennings becomes jeopardy permanent host he’s doing a fine job along with mayim bialik taking turns as temporary hosts he was Alex Trebeks idol so I hope he gets the job as permanent host

  4. Please not Miss Bilaik. She is so condescending with the contestants. Keeps her hands on the podium, like she knows it all. ( and she probably does, as she is very smart) But she needs to be more down to earth. Just to uppity for me. Ken is so much warmer & more human with the contestants.

    1. Jennings “warm”? He is so awkward and has NO interests whatsoever in the contestants! He is in NO WAY even the least comparable to Alex Trek. Mayim is GENUINE and truly cares about others. If Jennings is chosen, that is the END of JEOPARDY for me.

  5. I love them both!! They both do a fantastic job hosting and I hope it keeps going on sharing the hosting job.

  6. No way for Ken. He is like watching paint dry. If he gets it I won’t be watching. If it isn’t Mayim pick anybody else but Ken.

  7. I find Mayim speaks clearer than Ken. I have difficulty understanding him at times. I prefer that clarity and find her warmer to the contestants.

  8. Ken Jennings is very smart but not a great speaker m. He swallows half of his words. Needs speech therapy. The lady is not so great either. Keep looking while Ken practices speech.

  9. I don’t like either one. But if I had to pick between the two, it would be Ken Jennings.
    I can’t believe there isn’t a better choice out there.

  10. I quit watching Jeopardy, and I have watched it for many years. Don’t really care for either one of them. Really sad 😓

  11. What about a new host? Buzzy is great. Do away with maim
    Balyick. So boring. I know i spelled wrong.

  12. I watch Jeopardy for the contestants. I prefer Ken Jennings as host. Saying that- I will watch Jeopardy no matter who is hosting.
