Ken Jennings: ‘Try To Stump Me!’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Legendary Jeopardy! winner Ken Jennings has a challenge for trivia titans: Try to stump him!

Jennings – famous for winning 74 games of Jeopardy! in a row in 2004 – is bringing his trivia prowess to Stump The Master, a new game show segment on GSN LIVE which airs Fridays.

Viewers can ask Jennings any trivia questions they want, and if they stump him, they win $1,000.

Jennings challenges people to ask away, but admits his weak subjects are country music and info about H&R Block – the Achilles’ heel that stumped him on Jeopardy! and ultimately broke his streak.

However, he’s confident in his movie knowledge of all genres and decades – especially ’80s flicks.

He says, “You don’t want to mess with me and John Hughes movies!”

Jennings is used to people trying to stump him, especially strangers on the street.

He once had a hotel doorman quiz him about vice presidents before he’d let him in the building.

His family and friends “know better” than to try to stump him, but blackball him from playing board games with them during gatherings.
