Ken Jennings, the “Jeopardy!” contestant who was
catapulted to fame after making game show history as its all-time champion,
will come to Sacramento State to present his talk “Living Your Life as
a Question.” The event will take place at 7:30 p.m. on April 15 in the
University Union Ballroom.
Jennings will discuss his experiences as a contestant and answer questions from
the audience. There will also be a “Jeopardy!”-style competition
pitting Jennings against the top member of the Sacramento State College Bowl
team and a current or emeritus faculty member. The event is part of April’s
Alumni Month activities.
Jennings appeared on the popular game show more than 70 times, answering 2,700
questions and earning a record $2.35 million during his unprecedented winning
streak. “Jeopardy!” is currently broadcasting an “Ultimate
Tournament of Champions” to determine which two players will compete against
Jennings for the finals in May.
