If you love watching “Jeopardy!,” you know that there can only be one winner.

Last week’s episode of the famous game show featured a rare occurrence - two players were tied at the end of the game.

The final category was statues.

“Statues honoring this man who was killed in 1779 can be found in Waimea, Kauai & In Whitby, England," the clue said, with the answer being Captain James Cook, the British explorer.

Brian Chang, a three-day champion, and Jack Weller were tied in first place with $18,800 after Double “Jeopardy!” Both contestants, however, got the final question correct. Suddenly, both Chang and Weller would end up with $37,600.

Rules of “Jeopardy!” say that the game needs to go into a tiebreaker if this rare incident happens. Ken Jennings, guest host, read a clue in the history category. The first person who correctly buzzed in with the correct answer would win the game with $37,600.

Chang was the first one to answer making him a four-day champion with $88,102.

"The was some finish," Jennings said to the players after the game ended. "I've never seen one of those and I've been here, like, 100 times."

Jennings, who is serving as guest host following the death of Alex Trebek, took to Twitter to comment on what had happened.

“Just my second day on the guest-hosting job...and this happens," Jennings wrote. ”We had the possibility of a super-rare Final Jeopardy tie or a super-DUPER-rare triple-zero finish."
