Thank you so much, gio. Now to the "Jeopardy" match-up fans have been dreaming about. The game's top champions Ken Jennings, James Holzhauer and Brad Rutter are going to face off in a prime time greatest of all time tournament. Call it the G.O.A.T. Tournament and T.J. Holmes is -- why are you fired up?

Jennings, though, fired back. All proceeds go to buying James Holzhauer a nice sport coat or blazer and maybe own a necktie. Earlier Jennings joked any game against Holzhauer wouldn't be easy. It's got to be inevitable. I can't get 29-year-old Ken to show up with his sleek 29-year-old brain, you know. It's got to be me with my broke down brain. All right, how this is going to go, it's the best -- whoever gets to three wins actually is how it will go. The first to three three matches will win a million dollars and losers get 250.
