'Jeopardy!' Fans Are Calling James Holzhauer the “Undisputed Twitter Champion” After Epic Tweet
If Jeopardy! fans are ever in need of a laugh, quiz show legend James Holzhauer always has jokes up his sleeve.
These days, he stars in the trivia show The Chase with Jeopardy! champions Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter. On February 16, James revealed that he had tried to get the show to spice up the music used when one of the show’s “chasers” — also known as trivia geniuses James, Ken, Brad and Mark Labbett — are brought into the game by host Sara Haines.
“I suggested that Season 3 of @thechaseabc should feature Chaser entrance music to ramp up the heel heat,” James wrote on Twitter. “My esteemed producer @mickified informed me that we can’t spend to license songs, but they found a way to keep it in the ABC/Disney family. Volume up.”

With that, James shared four different clips of each chaser making their entrance — but this time, the entrances were set to Disney movie songs. Kicking the funny Twitter thread off was James’ intro to Frozen’s “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” Brad’s was a little more upbeat with The Lion King’s “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King.” Ken followed with Beauty and the Beast’s “Be Our Guest,” while Matt’s walk was set to The Little Mermaid’s “Poor Unfortunate Soul.”
After seeing the various snippets, fans immediately filled the Twitter comments section with laughing emojis. What’s more, many were instantly on board for James’ musical revision. “#Undisputed Twitter champion,” one person wrote. “You’re a genius in more ways than one,” another added. “😂😂😂 These are hilarious!” a different fan said.
In case you haven’t tuned into The Chase yet, the trivia show is an adaption of the British game show of the same name which premiered in 2013. Every episode begins with Sara welcoming three new contestants and then one chaser. Competitors and viewers don’t know who will walk out because a random one is chosen each time (from James, Ken, Brad and Matt). Contestants start by answering as many questions as they can in one minute. Then, they take their earned money to face the chaser. In the last round, the two remaining competitors join forces to try to beat the chaser together.
While none of the chasers shared their thoughts about the Disney music, fans enjoyed a good chuckle. Who knows, maybe the third season of The Chase will surprise everyone with new music!
