One lucky “Jeopardy!” contestant got her wish granted by Ken Jennings while appearing on the Oct. 2 show, and it was one that the host hadn’t heard before.
Player Emily Seaman Hoy explained to the host that she, her brother and husband often form a human pyramid (think cheerleaders rooting on a football game) while visiting “iconic” sights like the Northern Lights and hoped to do the same on the set of the popular game show — with Jennings participating himself.
“Our next big goal is to get a pyramid on the ‘Jeopardy!’ stage with the host of ‘Jeopardy!’” Hoy said to Jennings.
“We have never done a human pyramid here, and I don’t think I’ve ever been in one so we’ll have to talk after the show,” Jennings replied.
And yes, the host came through with flying colors, and even got in on the fun himself according to photos that were shared on the show’s official X, formally known as Twitter, account.

Hoy ended up coming in second that evening.
