Mr. Smartie Pants Ken Jennings, 38, took the game show world by storm in 2004 with his record-breaking 74-game winning steak on Jeopardy! (during which he earned more than $2.5 million). And now, beginning with the August 12th issue of PARADE, readers can match wits with Ken by playing Kennections, the trivia game he created especially for the publication. The puzzle features five correct answers, which have something in common—the challenge is to figure out the “kennection.” Clever, right?
With this regular feature, Ken joins the famously intelligent Marilyn vos Savant, whose “Ask Marilyn” is one of PARADE’s most popular columns, in making the weekly publication a must-read destination for puzzle and trivia fans.
Also in this week’s issue, Ken talks to PARADE about his lifelong love of trivia, and the one question he finds hard to answer. And check out the new “Kennections” puzzles at Parade.com/ken.
This guy is too damn smart for his own good.
