The most epic “Jeopardy!” contest is over, and KEN JENNINGS is officially the GREATEST OF ALL TIME. He won last night’s game, making him the first player to get three wins. JAMES HOLZHAUER finished with one and BRAD RUTTER third. In addition to his nerd bragging rights, Jennings also takes home $1 million. James and Brad each get $250,000. Even though he was pretty much a non-factor in the contest, Rutter still holds the record for winning the most money in “Jeopardy!” history, with a little over $5 million. Ken is second with $4.5 million . . . and James is third with just under $3 million.
MIRANDA LAMBERT was talking to “Billboard” about her album, “Wildcard” – and one of her friends told her “Wildcard” is the first album cover of hers where she looks happy in the photo. She’s wearing lingerie, fishnet tights, and she has a sly smile on her face. The reason for that grin. She and Brendan McLoughlin had just gotten married. “That smile may just be the wildcard I pulled out of my sleeve this time because of where I’ve gotten in my life. The title just fit.” “Wildcard” is the fourth album of hers that has a “one-word title” . . . and that’s kind of her lucky charm. “My one-word titles have been special records, a little more special than the others for some reason or another . . . so I wanted it to be right.” The other one-word titles are “Kerosene”, “Revolution”, and “Platinum”.
