Former "Jeopardy!" champion Ken Jennings will be featured as a contestant on "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" Friday, Nov. 14, and Monday, Nov. 17. Jennings will take on the challenge as part of "Millionaire's" Guinness World Records Edition theme week as he is the "Former Guinness World Records Title-Holder for the Largest Cash Prize Won on a TV Game Show." (He currently remains the second-highest-earning contestant in U.S. game show history.)

Ten years ago, in November 2004, Jennings won 74 games in a row on "Jeopardy!" He defeated 149 opponents while winning $2,520,700. And now for the first time, Jennings will put his skills to the test opposite host Terry Crews on the iconic game show "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire," which continues to be the only game show to offer a $1 million prize to each and every contestant.

Unlike his previous game show experience, Jennings will face 14 cleverly written trivia questions with the help of three lifelines: "Ask the Audience," "Jump the Question" and "Plus One."
