The "Jeopardy!" Champion, James Holzhauer, tried to educate Alex Trebek on jargon in the game during his 25th consecutive win on Wednesday night, but the long-time host did not need the lesson.
The professional sports player used an arcane game term place his Double Jeopardy bet before clarifying the dollar amount to Trebek.
"Two cents, please," said Holzhauer.
A dime is equal to $ 1,000 – and is an expression commonly used in gaming environments.
"Very good," Trebek replied, before Holzhauer said, "It's $ 2,000."
Trebek said dryly, "I know," which provoked a laugh from Holzhauer and the crowd.
Wednesday night's win pushed Holzhauer's total winnings to $ 1,939,027.
