Ken Jennings competes on ‘Wheel of Fortune’ – against his ‘Jeopardy!’ co-host

Eighteen years after his legendary “Jeopardy!” run, Ken Jennings still holds the record for most consecutive games won – a staggering 74 games. Now Jennings is about to find out if he’s just as good on another popular game show.

On Wednesday, Jennings competes on “Celebrity Wheel of Fortune” — against her “Jeopardy!” co-host Mayim Bialik and “Wheel of Fortune” star Vanna White, who “will call the letters instead of revealing,” TV Line reported.

White has actually been on “Wheel of Fortune” before – in an April Fool’s Day 1997 episode that was hosted by the late “Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Maggie Sajak, 28, daughter of longtime “Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak, will take White’s place as co-host and reveal the letters, according to the Los Angeles Times.

What happens in Ken Jennings’ “Celebrity Wheel of Fortune” episode?

A preview of the episode, shared by Entertainment Tonight, shows Jennings and Bialik fighting over a puzzle. Bialik rings first, a little hesitantly, and guesses that the mysterious sentence is “It’s funny to meet you here”. Almost immediately, she realizes her mistake. But it’s too late. Jennings rings and resolves the issue: “Nice to meet you here.”

“Thank you,” Jennings said to a laughing Bialik.

“They may be two hosts, but they work together like that,” says “Wheel of Fortune” Pat Sajak. “It’s really wonderful to see.”

The three celebrities are competing for charities: Jennings for Equal Justice Initiative; Bialik for Mental Wealth Alliance; and White for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, per Entertainment Tonight.

In the Entertainment Tonight clip, Sajak briefly chats with Jennings about interactions with “Jeopardy!” fans, asking him if he is ever interviewed on the spot.

“People will literally come up to me on the street with a really tough trivial question that they apparently all have ready,” says Jennings. “I was with my children by the lake once in the mountains. A guy comes out of the woods and looks at me and says, ‘That band from the 1980s…’”

Jennings also tells Sajak that he never imagined he would end up hosting the quiz show that has been a part of his life since he was a kid.

“Not in my wildest dreams,” Jennings said. “But ‘Jeopardy!’ and ‘Wheel’ were always my favorite shows as a kid, so this is a real to-do list for me.

Vanna White, Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings go head-to-head on “Celebrity Wheel of Fortune.”
