Ken added that he had no choice but to eat yogurt even if the last time he opened and ate a thing of it, he thinks he was watching "The Arsenio Hall Show" simultaneously.

In an interview with The Week, Mindy shared that she was a theater major who worked as a preschool teacher. During the interview, Mindy opened up about the couple's relationship.


According to her, Ken did not give off airs of intelligence in college and that it took him nine months to ask her out even after admitting to his roommate that he wanted to date her.

Ken joked that he did not want his wife to divorce him, so he told her right away.


"He mostly wanted people to know he was funny," the proud wife said to The Week. "He's not the type of person who wants you to know he knows everything."

In an interview with Life Hacker, Ken shared that his proudest moment as a parent was when he and Mindy had dinner reservations, so they chose to let their children stroll over all alone and have a little experience in Central Park.

Meanwhile, Ken, who is also an author, previously revealed in an interview that Mindy is the only person he would tell the results of every "Jeopardy!" round.


Mindy was additionally clued in to how her husband fared in January's "Jeopardy! The Greatest of All Time" tournament. Ken joked that he did not want his wife to divorce him, so he told her right away.

Ken is the highest-earning American game show competitor ever. He holds the record for the longest series of wins on "Jeopardy!" with 74 consecutive successes.

Ken likewise holds the record for the highest average correct responses per game on the show's history with 35.9 during his original run and 33.1 overall.
