Ken Jennings Shares A Rare Photo Of His Son Dylan To Celebrate The Mariners In The Playoffs


Ken Jennings made history when he won 74 games in a row on Jeopardy! back in 2004. He returned for several champion tournaments and became a fan favorite. Now, he’s been named the permanent co-host along with Mayim Bialik after longtime host Alex Trebek passed away in 2020.

The 48-year-old has never shared much about his home life. However, now he seems to be opening up more and sharing some rare glimpses into his life with his family. His wife’s name is Mindy and they have two teenagers, Caitlin and Dylan.

Ken captioned the photo, “The last time his team made it to the playoffs, this guy wasn’t born yet. He just started his sophomore year of college. Congrats @Mariners!” Fans quickly noticed the striking resemblance between Ken and his son.
