Returning champion airfare

Postby Robert K S » Tue Feb 10, 2009 1:00 pm

I thought I remembered Ken saying that Jeopardy! started paying returning champion airfare once Ken started his streak. Does Ken reference this in Brainiac at all? If so, what chapter or page?

ETA: On the Jeopardy! Message Board, I found a post by Tom Kelso saying they did the same for him, and his appearances predate Ken's by a couple years.

For the 100th time, I wish I'd held out for an index...

It's on pg 122.

OK, so it didn't start with you, and I was misremembering...
