Ken Jennings rose to fame with ‘Jeopardy!’ and once again, after his retirement, the sports star is returning once again to the show. However, this time he has chosen the spot behind-the-camera. Ken Jennings will be producing the show for its new and upcoming season 37 that will release on September 14.
Jennings made history in the show by becoming the only start for having a winning streak for the longest! He will now act as the consulting producer along with general ambassador of the series. That means, we can see a lot of special video categories featuring Jennings.
Ken says that he played his last round at ‘Jeopardy!’ as a contestant and although it was long time back, it still remains his favorite show. To get associated with the show once again gives him immense happiness. He says that he is still a part of all the action that surrounds the show but, this time he does not have to worry about forming and phrasing questions.
Jennings appeared for the first time on the show in 2004. He won a total of 74 games and kept returning back for victory time and time again. He even competed in ‘Greatest of All Time’ event against legendary James Holzhauer and Brad Rutter. No surprise again, Jennings was the winner.
