Former “Jeopardy!” champion James Holzhauer will return to the popular game show for the “Tournament of Champions.”

According to the show’s social media channels, Holzhauer will make an appearance Wednesday night.

The game show's 32-time champion and professional sports gambler lost for the first time in an episode that aired in June, falling short of records for total winnings and longest reign.

Holzhauer nearly doubled the show's previous record for one-day winnings by earning $131,127 on his tenth game, and he leaves with the 16 highest one-day scores in the show's history.
