"Ever since my 'Jeopardy!' appearance, people really enjoy trying to stump me with trivia questions every time I walk my dog or go to the grocery store. Inviting viewers to do the same on GSN Live seemed like it would be even more fun," said Jennings. "I look forward to wrestling with the toughest trivia questions that America's smartest smarty-pants can devise."
