James Holzhauer's hot streak on Jeopardy, in which he almost topped the former all-time cash record, has drawn the attention of former Jeopardy champion Ken Jennings who now claims a showdown between the two is "inevitable." As Fox News reports:

After winning 32 consecutive games of “Jeopardy!” with a record-breaking $2,462,216, reigning champion James Holzhauer’s streak came to an end at the hands of Emma Boettcher. The loss brings an end to speculation that Holzhauer would topple current reigning “Jeopardy!” champion, Jennings, who won $2,520,700 across 74 games...

Speaking on “Good Morning America,” Jennings commented on the man that almost dethroned him

"It seemed like he might be the guy, the chosen one, so I was very excited," he said. "I wanted to see it come down to the wire, I wanted to see if it could be beaten because I think it can be done."

"He was so close to the cash record," Jennings added. "And it just shows how fragile a 'Jeopardy!' streak is."

A battle of the brains appears to be on Jeopardy's horizon. Who will come out on top?
