‘Danger!’ Fans learn bizarre hangover cure thanks to Ken Jennings

Danger! co-host Ken Jennings educated and disgusted viewers when he revealed his surprising cure for a hangover.

On Wednesday’s episode, reigning champ Stephen Webb took on Govind Dandekar and Gwen Lockman, with the latter making a face when she had to give one answer.

Lockwood chose the topic “Hair of the Dog” for $400 and was confronted with the answer: “Nolan Ryan treated blisters with brine, also called this juice and for internal use, the electrolytes can help your symptoms.”

She guessed right: “What is pickle juice?” as Jennings told her, “Yes, pickle juice for a hangover, that will cost you $1,300 and that brings us to our first break.”

He then turned to the camera to address viewers directly at home.

“Go to the fridge for a nice cold glass of pickle juice and be right back,” Jennings stated.

Fans of Danger! weren’t sure if they should praise the co-host for his tip or if they should riot.

“‘Go to the fridge for a nice, cold glass of pickle juice.’ Ken Jennings induces vomiting towards first break. #Jeopardy,” one viewer tweeted.

Another added, “Jeopardy just taught me that pickle juice is good for a hangover. I thought I’d pass that along. It’s good for marathon runners, too.”

And a third wrote: “EWW Pickle Juice gelatin…”

As it turns out, pickle juice has many benefits besides curing a hangover.

“Pickle juice contains electrolytes in the form of a lot of sodium and some potassium and magnesium. That’s why you can use it as a natural electrolyte,” dietician Camille Skoda told the Cleveland clinic.

“It can help to rehydrate after exercise.”

Pickle juice is also apparently good for helping regulate blood sugar levels, aids weight loss, and is packed with antioxidants.

“You can get some antioxidants from pickle juice, but eating the pickle is more beneficial,” explains Skoda.

The dietitian added that the type of pickle you choose is critical in making the perfect juice.

“Pickle juice has some benefits, but it really depends. The type of pickle juice matters, as does the health benefit you want to get,” Skoda said.

“A jar full of dyes and preservatives won’t give you those benefits.”

Webb managed to remain champion at the end of the match, winning $20,000, bringing his seven-day winnings to $175,200.
