The final match came down to Holzhauer and Jennings in a Final Jeopardy question. Holzhauer fumbled on his answer. The mistake cost him the tournament.

Holzhauer seemed to take the loss in stride, tweeting a Scooby Doo joke at Jennings after the episode aired.

"And I would have GOAT away with it too, if it weren't for you meddling Kens,' he posted, with a picture of the character Fred holding Jennings' Photoshopped head.
