IF ALEX TREBEK IS THE SHOW'S VIRGIL, JENNINGS IS DANTE, THE ONE GUY WHO MADE IT OUT ALIVE: Buzzfeed's Kevin Lincoln profiles Ken Jennings as he tries to make his way in the world as a "professional smart person":
[P]arlaying both intelligence and effortless charisma into not just celebrity but also a seemingly permanent spot in the pop-culture landscape is a pretty specific hustle. Don't let the clean-cut Mormon good looks or aw-shucks demeanor fool you: Ken Jennings is on the grind.... His current job description is emblematic of the social media age: Being himself, for fun and profit. Which means being more than a little self-aware.


  1. One of my favorite things on Twitter is the occasional exchanges between Jennings and Joshua Malina, who you would think on first glance might be world apart culturally, but are, in many ways, oddly similar.

    (And I still love that a Jennings-Hatch Utah senate race was polled.)
