Congratulations to the Jennings clan.

He rocked hard on Jeopardy – I was bummed when he lost.

Betcha her first phrase will be “what is mommy!”

Cute. I live in Utah. Only like an hour from him. I am surprised this wasn’t all over the news out here. Congat’s to them!

Joy, Ken is probably more well known that many of the soap and reality stars and athletes that we post about! He was on Jeopardy for 2 1/2 straight months, and the audience for that show is huge.

Ken actually lives in Seattle now (that’s where I live!).

What beautiful photographs, especially the one of Ken and his new daughter.

Best wishes to Ken, his wife and their son on the birth of Caitlin.

I loved him on Jepoardy! I definately think that him and his child count under a celebrity baby.

Yay Ken! I love Ken Jennings so much. I’m so happy he and his wife had another baby.

Congratulations to Ken & his family! Caitlin has a very sweet name, and she’s very cute 🙂 I love the photo of Ken holding her.

Im kinda weirded out by the creepy look hes giving and I thought he wasnt a nice man for bashing Alex Trebeck and Jeopardy.
Definitely not a deserving Godly Mormon man that he portrayed himself to be on the show..

I think it’s very sweet. She’ll be running the board on the Teen Tournament in Jeopardy soon, no doubt. Congrats!

Cool! Thanks for the update CBB!!

I love that he’s a celebrity, just because he’s smart! And hooray for plain names.

He didn’t bash Alex Trebek or Jeopardy. He wrote an ironic piece of humour, and then a reporter stupidly took some quotes out of context and portrayed them (incorrectly) as being completely serious. Go read the entire context before you judge. It’s still in the archives at his blog The issue has also been thoroughly aired and quickly lauged away in the message boards.
