I kinda feel bad, I mean it's almost like cheating because none of them had the chance that he did with the rules being what they were at the time they played, but still, you knew someone would do it.

Let's hope he doesn't spazz out and say "What is FedEx" again.

Not as bad as I had thought the questions would be...they seem a little more difficult than normal, but not horribly so. I wonder if I'll even understand the questions in the final round

Do you guys think that the shows that Ken was on were rigged in any way?

Now we'll get to find out who's #1. If someone can blow Ken out of the water in the finals, then they'll be the undisputed Jeopardy champion.

I don't know if it was rigged but I think he let up a little bit. He probably had enough of it and wanted to get home. He netted more money than he would ever use and knew he would be invited back for the TOC.

Since I took an oath of chastity and poverty to get a history degree, being on Jeopardy solved one of those problems. Actually, you don't have to take an oath of chastity to get a history degree. It just kind of works out that way.

Today's winner's no match for Ken. We'll see how Babu will fare tomorrow.
