Ken Jennings Won $100,000 on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire

Ken Jennings became a celebrity after he won 74 games on Jeopardy.  He was invited to play on Who Wants to be a Millionaire where the rules are different.  On Millionaire if you miss a question you are out and just get the $1,000 consolation prize.  Ken started out very well as he got the first 9 questions with no trouble.  He stumbled on question #10 and had to use all 3 of his lifelines.  He used the Ask The Audience Lifeline first.  Since the audience was not conclusive he used his Plus 1 and then jumped the question.  I reallly thought his Plus 1 would have been Brad Rutter, but it was not.  He answered the $100,000 but decided to walk away when he was unsure about the answer for the $250,000 question.
