Ken Jennings’ run as the temporary host of ‘Jeopardy!’ is underway, and many have praised the former game champion for his handling of the hosting duties. However, one contestant couldn’t help but poke fun at Jennings during a recent episode. The contestant’s hilarious Final Jeopardy answer went viral after it made reference to Jennings time as a contestant on the show.

During an episode of ‘Jeopardy!,’ contestant Brian, who was in the lead at the time, decided to go for laughs after realizing he didn’t know the answer to the final question. Answering the question, “Adjusted for inflation, the nightly rate this company put in its name in 1962 is now $51,” Brian wrote “What is H&R Block?” While that wasn’t the answer, it still got a reaction from Jennings, as that was the answer that ended his historic run on the show.

The correct answer was actually “Motel 6,” but fans couldn’t help but laugh at the awkward moment as Jennings was reminded of his loss. Of course, it all worked out for him as he is arguably the most famous champion in the show’s history and has now taken over hosting duties. As for contestant Brian, his fate likely won’t be the same.
