“Jeopardy!” champ James Holzhauer, a sports gambler by trade, wagered “two dimes” during Wednesday night’s game. Apparently worried he might not be understood, he clarified to host Alex Trebek: “That’s $2,000.”
Dude, it’s Trebek. Of course you got this answer:

“I know,” Trebek replied, eliciting a chuckle from the seemingly invincible champ.
Holzhauer won his 25th straight game, pocketing $71,885 to bring his total to $1,939,027. The march toward Ken Jennings’ record streak of 74 games and $2.5 million continues.
A few viewers reacted to the “two dimes” exchange on Twitter.
Jeopardy James is such a douche bag..
He actually said: “two dimes please” instead of two thousand

Any other degens out there appreciate when @James_Holzhauer landed the first round daily double and wagered “two dimes” then as if he remembered he wasn’t in his realm said “that’s two thousand”. This is so good, please don’t ever lose. #Jeopardy
