“Jeopardy!” presenter Ken Jennings sends a “delectably vicious” tweet to his former adversary James Holzhauer

The gamble he took paid off in the comments.

In an unprovoked Twitter attack, “Jeopardy!” champion and host Ken Jennings, 48, insulted his former competitor James Holzhauer, 38.

Holzhauer, who competed against Jennings in the 2020 “Jeopardy! The Greatest of All Time” tournament, was minding his own business on Saturday when he tweeted a photo of the Indianapolis Colts leading the Minnesota Vikings by 33 points at halftime. The Colts went on to lose the game by 39 points.

The comeback was heralded as the greatest in NFL history.

“Eerie photographs captured moments before tragedy struck,” tweeted Holzhauer about the overwhelming score at halftime.

Jennings swooped in with a photo of himself and Holzhauer competing in the “GOAT” series in response to the comments. Before “Final Jeopardy!” of the first game of the second match of the tournament, the snapshot was taken. Despite Holzhauer’s victory, Jennings went on to win the entire competition.

Jennings omitted a caption, instead to let the image speak for itself.

Holzhauer holds the record for most single-game winnings ($131,127 in April 2019), but behind Jennings in consecutive games won (74 vs. 32) and highest regular-season winnings ($2.52 million vs. $2.52 million).

They both behind Brad Rutter in the category of all-time winnings, which includes tournaments.

Fans were astounded by Jennings’s zeal, thus he got the unofficial award for the finest end-of-year online clapback.

“Cruel. “Delectably cruel,” a Twitter user nervously chuckled.

“Gott dammit,” muttered a second person.

“Cold,” remarked a second individual.

“It’s not boasting if it’s based on truth,” stated another.

“This is typically how guys demonstrate their camaraderie, by roasting and making fun of each other,” an astute user explained.

Jennings has recently been on fire on social media. The previous week, he defended his famed “What is a hoe?” response to a 2004 clue.

In a TikTok video, he said, “I believe I am owed $200, and you know, perhaps the authors might form a pool.”
