Jennings is married to Mindy Jennings. She met Ken Jennings at college and they have two children together: Dylan Jennings (14 years old) and Caitlin Elizabeth Jennings (11 years).

Jennings was born in South Korea and grew up in Singapore before she was offered a role on Jeopardy! While at BYU, she was a member of the school’s quiz bowl team. She was also a software engineer for a Salt Lake City staffing company that provided health care services. Jennings’ success on the show earned her over $2 million.
Despite winning a record-setting amount of money, she was not able to win the championship. Jennings and Brad Rutter finished second in the Jeopardy! Ultimate Tournament of Champions was 15 weeks long. It featured twenty-one year-old winners, seven time champs and more than one hundred five-time champions. Jennings was pleased with her second place finish in Jeopardy!
Jennings worked as a freelance writer during college. She also edited Parade’s trivia column. Jennings answered all seven questions on her blog, and the column ran for fifteen weeks. The respondent with the most correct answers won a signed copy of her book. Unfortunately, Jennings stopped sending out these emails after running out of material to write about. Her work load has increased significantly with her book tours.
Jennings won Jeopardy! In three consecutive appearances, Jennings broke the old standard. Prior to this change, contestants had to win at least five games to advance to the next round. Jennings’ winning streak has reached 74 games and she has surpassed Nancy Zerg’s record for the longest consecutive game. She may not have won every championship, but she has always beat her opponent, and she’s no exception in that department.
