DANGER! Fans were shocked when Ken Jennings show rival James Holzhauer slammed him in an epic diss online.
James, 33, has decided to shade the current Jeopardy! Host.
The Chase star is best known for his 32-game winning streak on the ABC game show.
Back in January 2020, Ken, now 47, previously defeated James when they competed for the title of greatest of all time on the quiz show, according to The New York Times.
He also came out with the $1 million prize after beating his rival.
Recently, Ken promoted the show’s airing on his commercial Twitter feed.
The TV host tweeted, “I’m late for the east coast but there’s a real Jeopardy! rarity on the show tonight!
“Plan your evening accordingly.”
James apparently “watched” the episode but claimed to be unimpressed.
The former Jeopardy! master fun at his rival, writing, “I was just watching and I can confirm someone actually laughed at one of Ken’s jokes.”

Ken replied with another tweet adding, “Listen, mate.”
During the first week of April, Jeopardy! Co-host Mayim Bialik, 46, announced that she and Ken will quit hosting the ABC show in July.
By then, a permanent host to be announced will take over.
The Blossom actress told Newsweek: “I threw my hat in that ring very publicly.
“I like to say that as an actor and as a potential Jeopardy! host, we live season after season, so I know where I am through May 6th.
“And beyond that, I can wait and see.”
Fans have been pushing for Ken to become the permanent host but have angered Mayim over recent mistakes, like wearing the same blazer twice.
Fans of the popular show say they’ve spotted a potential new clue as to who will be named permanent host.
Deadline has announced that Mayim’s comedy Call Me Kat will be renewed for a second season.
Fans are speculating that the comedic actress needs to focus her energies and time on the Fox comedy instead of the quiz show.
A fan on Reddit said: “This should push Sony towards Ken towards Mayim who has other commitments like this.
“Also, they can apologize that this is purely a matter of planning so that Mayim fans don’t get upset about it.”
Another Redditor mentioned, “Regardless of the hosts, I don’t think the current setup is ideal or practical. Too much uncertainty.”
A third user chimed in: “I’m sure Ken is the one the producers want. Eventually, the two host thing will get old.”
