Ken Jennings

The "Kennections" trivia puzzle, which debuted in the newsprint-y pages of Parade magazine back in 2012, is now a regular interactive quiz on the website of my old friends at mental_floss magazine. The interface is much nicer, but the rules are the same. First, answer five challenging quiz questions. Then see if you can figure out the "Kennection" between them--the secret theme that all five answers have in common. Get it, Kennections? Like "connections" but named for "Ken." It's a pun!

Read Ken's weekly column "The Debunker" on the blogs at, an Internet deal-of-the-day site that also happens to own a gigantic foam version of Ken's head...on which they no doubt practice devilish voodoo experiments. Every week on Woot, Ken debunks a different myth or misconception or lie that they taught you in school. Everything you know is wrong, and Ken Jennings is here to help!

For the first time, it's possible for know-it-alls to challenge Ken for trivia superiority! Trivia Death Match with Ken Jennings is a no-holds-barred Mexican-wrestling style extravaganza in which Ken takes on all comers to his trivia throne. The gang (the geniuses behind the popular MovieCat game) held Ken hostage in their state-of-the-art trivia facility and made him answer each of the game's 1,000 questions, while recording his answers and timing. So as you play each of the game's fifty quizzes, you can see exactly how you stack up against Ken, head-to-head. ¡Buena suerte, luchadores! Available in the App Store for iPhone and iPad.
