Robert: Jeopardy champ Ken Jennings wants to throw down with James Holzhauer
This 5 word phrase is usually exclaimed by the ring announcer prior to an epic showdown, like a boxing match. What is “Let’s get ready to rumble!”
Former Jeopardy! champion Ken Jennings has said that he is interested in going head to head with recent Jeopardy! superstar, James Holzhauer.
“I think it’s inevitable,” Jennings said in a recent interview. Jennings added that he may be at a disadvantage should the meeting of the minds actually happen, “obviously I can’t get 29-year-old Ken to show up with his sleek, 29-year-old brain, it’s got to be me with my broke down brain.”
Jennings holds the game show’s record for most consecutive wins, with 74 straight victories, and has the highest total earnings ever.
This past Monday, Holzhauer had his 32 game winning streak broken, leaving the game with $2 460 000 in winnings.
