Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek will be reunited with show champion Ken Jennings — sort of.

For two weeks starting on May 4, Jeopardy! will replay their Greatest of All Time tournament from January on ABC that saw their three highest money winners ever — Ken Jennings, Brad Rutter, and James Holzhauer — battle it out for the grand prize of $1 million and the title of G.O.A.T.

The network will also flashback to Jennings' first and last episodes from his famous record-breaking 74-game streak which hasn't aired since 2004. The episodes will serve as bookends of the tournament replay, with his show debut kicking off the two-week special and his last game airing on May 15.

Jennings is the highest-earning American game show contestant of all time with his winnings surpassing the $5 million mark from his time on Jeopardy!, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, Grand Slam, 1 vs. 100, and Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader.
