Ken Jennings Meets His Match

Tonight at 7:00, we will watch as Ken Jennings gets his rear handed to him by Nancy Zerg, a California real estate agent. In this previously taped episode, Zerg beat Jennings $14,001 to $8,799. The game was close at the Final Jeapordy question, Jennings leading $14,400 to Zerg's $10,000.

The clue that brought the giant crumbling down? "Most of this firm's 70,000 seasonal white-collar employees work only four months a year." Zerg jotted the correct answer quickly: "What is H&R block." While Jennings put Federal Express.

Ken's winnings have put him in a whole new tax bracket, and the media won't let anyone forget it. He is booked for David Letterman and Regis Philbin this week, has a book deal, and is open to any commercial sponsorship opportunities.
