Jeopardy! legend and guest host Ken Jennings took to social media over the weekend to ask his followers for good movie suggestions.

If you are a fan of the popular game show, or if you just follow Jennings on Twitter, you know that he is not shy when it comes to posting online. He is often one to make hilarious suggestions to others, but on Saturday, he was asking for that favor in return.

The second-most winningest player in Jeopardy! history is wanting to know what good racing movies are out there nowadays. He specifically references the Fast and Furious franchise in his most recent tweet.

“What is a good movie to see this weekend if my main interests are racecars and familia,” Jennings posed to his fans.

Now, Jennings is a smart man. He had to have known that he would get some snarky replies back to his own question, as he is someone who’s quick to give them out. And he did get a lot of those — but he also had plenty of responses from followers who were genuinely trying to recommend him a good movie.

The top reply to Jennings’ tweet went to Twitter user Todd Adams (@ToddAdams83). He simply posted a picture of the stars of Talladega Night: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, starring Will Ferrell.

Another fan, meanwhile, posted a photo of Tom Cruise on the set of Days of Thunder. Others recommended the popular Disney Pixar movie Cars, along with its sequels, Cars 2 and Cars 3.

Finally, one follower said, “Ken, a lot of people are pulling your leg here, but you should really check out F9. Lots of fast cars and the theme of the entire franchise is ‘familia’ (family).”

‘Jeopardy!’ Star Puts Fan on Blast on Social Media

You may wonder what exactly Jeopardy! legend Ken Jennings does in his spare time. We all know that he is one of the all-time greats of Jeopardy! He still holds the record on the show for the longest winning streak with 74-straight wins. In addition, he was a champion contestant that was so popular, he was one of the first to be named as a guest host following the passing of longtime show host, Alex Trebek.

Well, nowadays, Jennings is also one of the Chasers on the game show The Chase. Jennings joined the show back in January, teaming up with fellow Jeopardy! stars Brad Rutter and James Holzhauer. However, not all of the show’s fans liked the fact that Jennings joined the team. In fact, earlier this month, Jennings posted some of his personal hate mail online for the world to see.

“I do not like you at all,” one fan sent to him. “With all the money you have made, you are a smart a–.”
