‘Jeopardy’ Legend Ken Jennings Says He Doesn’t Want To Watch His New Show: Here’s Why

by Matthew Wilson

Most actors and celebrities promote their projects and TV shows. But “Jeopardy!” champ and former guest host Ken Jennings has always been cut from a different cloth. Recently, Jennings shared with fans why they shouldn’t expect him to watch “The Chase.”

Jennings responded to a tweet from the official “The Chase” Twitter page. That tweet urged followers to stream the episode on Hulu if they missed the premiere. They also tagged Ken Jennings in the post. In response, Jennings cheekily revealed he wouldn’t be streaming the show.

He wrote, “Why do I have to stream this? I was there.”

By now, Jennings’ tweets have become entertainment on their own. The “Jeopardy!” legend has quickly garnered a reputation for being as sarcastic as he is also quick-witted. But it turns out that not even Jennings’ own projects are safe from a little subtle ribbing on his part. Neither is former “Jeopardy!” champs and his fellow “The Chase” hosts for that matter.

Ken Jennings Pokes Fun at ‘Jeopardy’ Champs on Twitter

As the saying goes, the pen is mightier than the sword. Well, Ken Jennings’ Twitter feed certainly proves that old adage is true. Recently, “Jeopardy!” champ and former guest host Buzzy Cohen tried to poke fun at Jennings and some of the fellow “The Chase” hosts.

But when you come for the king of sarcasm, you best not miss. Jennings quickly put Cohen in his place on Twitter with a well-placed barb. Cohen wrote, “When can we talk wardrobe?” making a diss at what Jennings wears on the show.

In response, Jennings wrote, “Right here! This thread is the place for all your valued feedback.” He also included a photo of a muted conversations, hinting he wouldn’t be taking Cohen’s feedback at all. Jennings also roasted his co-host James Holzhauer as well during a recent episode. Jennings poked fun at the fact he beat Holzhauer for the Greatest of All Time “Jeopardy!” title.

“I am sorry that I couldn’t deliver you, James,” he said during the episode. “But, you must be so relieved to see someone who has cleaned his clock on national television.”

Of course, not everyone is a fan of Jennings and his humor. Sometimes, Jennings’s humor can rub people the wrong way. For instance, Jennings shared an angry email he recently got from a disgruntled fan.

“I do not like you at all,” the letter read. “With all the money you have made, you are a smart a–.”
