‘Jeopardy!’ Legend Ken Jennings Drops ‘Terrible News’ About His Personalized License Plate Search

On Friday, Jeopardy! champion and guest host Ken Jennings shared some disappointing news with his fans and followers on Twitter.

Evidently, Jennings is on the search for a new license plate. However, the ordinary, run-of-the-mill plates with randomly selected letters and numbers just won’t suffice. The man with the longest winning streak in Jeopardy! history had his mindset on a personalized tag. Unfortunately for Jennings, it looks like someone already beat him to his customized license plate idea.

The recent interim host of Jeopardy! shared a screenshot of his personalized plate search. “Sorry, WALUIGI is not available,” the message reads. In addition, the website gives two reasons as to why “WALUIGI” isn’t available.

One, someone else already customized their license plate with that name. Two, the word is “offensive” or “inappropriate.” Considering “WALUIGI” is a fictional cartoon character from the Super Mario video game series, it’s unlikely it’s not available for being offensive. It’s pretty safe to assume someone else is also a big fan of the video game character. And that someone is driving around with Jennings’s preferred license plate name.

“Terrible news,” Ken Jennings simply stated when realizing his license plate name is not available.

Ken Jennings Jokingly Reveals the ‘Greatest Lie’

Last week, Ken Jennings was joking around on Twitter again where he revealed the “greatest lie the devil ever told.” The former Jeopardy! champion is known for sharing amusing tweets with his followers. He doesn’t take his posts too seriously and has fun with his Twitter interactions.

Although he’s all business when competing and hosting game shows, Jennings keeps things light on social media. On Tuesday, his tweet referenced a famous movie quote. Fans of the film The Usual Suspects should know it well.

Actor Kevin Spacey delivered the 1995 mystery thriller’s most well-known quote. His character says, “The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.”

Yet Ken Jennings would disagree with Spacey. Instead, he hilariously said phantom emails are the devil’s greatest lie.

“The greatest lie the devil ever told is ‘You received this email because you subscribed to our list,’” Ken Jennings joked on Twitter.
