The list of Jeopardy! legends is a short one. It takes a massive amount of brainpower and quick reflexes to be a champion. That combination is rare. So, you can count the Jeopardy! contestants that will go down in history on one hand. Ken Jennings is undoubtedly at the top of that list. He won 74 consecutive games. Additionally, he holds the record for the biggest winner on a game show. The only ones who come close to him on that list are Brad Rutter and James Holzhauer. They currently serve as Chasers on the ABC game show The Chase. Their goal is to outwit contestants and keep them from winning a cash prize.

The second season of The Chase kicked off earlier this month. Ken Jennings and his fellow Chasers have been in top form since the beginning. You can catch a brand new episode of the show tonight on ABC. A promotional image for the episode shows an exchange between Brad Rutter and the show’s host Sara Haines.

In that exchange, Haines compliments Rutter on his outfit, saying that he is always the best dressed. He explains his reasoning for looking so dapper. Rutter says, “Well you know what they say. If you look good you feel good. If you feel good, you play good and I’m always looking fantastic.” Ken Jennings shared that image and gave his own hilarious input.

Ken Jennings said that his fellow Chaser was “Lookin’ hot,” on the upcoming episode of The Chase.

Ken Jennings Wasn’t Alone in His Comments

Several people popped up in Ken Jennings’ replies to sound off about Brad Rutter’s dapper outfit. In the photo, Rutter is sporting a pink bowtie. That bit of flash drew the eyes of several people. One Twitter user compared Rutter’s outfit to Pee-Wee Herman “all gussied up for prom.” Fellow Jeopardy! legend Buzzy Cohen chimed in as well. He wanted to know, “How much is Big Bow Tie paying Brad?”

Ken Jennings and his fellow Chasers are known for taking good-natured shots at one another. So, this compliment took one Twitter user off-guard. He said, “This is the nicest/most benign thing I think one of you three has ever said about the other.”

However, not all of Ken Jennings’ followers were so enthused about Rutter’s look. A Twitter user whose name is made up solely of emojis sent a pair of tweets that suggested that Brad needed to shave and find an undershirt. You know what they say, you can’t please all of the people all of the time.
