"JEOPARDY" CHAMP KEN JENNINGS UNINVITED TO NEW NBC GAME SHOW
Jeopardy champ Ken Jennings says he made a request to appear on NBC’s new trivia show, Million Second Quiz. He received an invitation to sit in its “money chair,” only to have the offer rescinded an hour later. “I sent in some paperwork and had a plane ticket in my [email] inbox by the time I sat down to brunch with my family,” Jennings wrote on September 14. However, an hour later, he got a phone call from a casting staffer saying there had been a “miscommunication.” Jennings wrote, “The network, for unspecified reasons, was not willing to fly ‘trivia champions' in for the show.” Jennings says NBC told him he could fly himself to New York if he wanted and wouldn’t even have to wait in line, but he turned them down. NBC has not commented on Jennings' claim. Jennings holds the record for the longest winning streak on Jeopardy, 74 straight matches in 2004, for a total of $3,172,700 in prize earnings.
