Jeopardy Superstar Ken Jennings Joins the ‘99%’

Entertainment

"...robbing me of my livelihood as a quiz show contestant."

Ken Jennings has been miffed at Watson even since he -- or rather it -- beat him in Jeopardy, ending his 74-game winning streak.

So what's he doing about it? He's joined the 99% -- that is the 99% or more of people who cannot beat IBM's supercomputer, Watson.

In a recent blog post, Jennings, who won $2,520,700 for his stint on Jeopardy, professes in the iconic Occupy Wall Street photograph-style (portrait of oneself holding a piece of paper holding with personal statement) his "solidarity."

Jennings writes that when Watson beat him, it "robb[ed] me of my livelihood as a quiz show contestant." He's now reduced to freelance writing.
