JEOPARDY! fans were left doing a Daily Double-take for the funniest reason during Tuesday’s episode.
Dozens of viewers tweeted how reigning champ Troy Meyer and fellow contestant Joe Incollingo looked oddly alike.

The reigning champ faced Linda Napikoski, an ESL instructor from Phoenix, Arizona, and Joe, a film and TV publicist from Los Angeles, California.
Troy, a music executive from Tampa, Florida, won his fourth game with $40K and a four-day total of $137K.
While Troy has not yet met his match gameplay-wise, it seemed to fans that he did so in a more literal sense.
Jeopardy! Twitter couldn’t stop posting how he and Joe at the middle podium appeared to look strangely similar.
Not only that, but the two contestants coincidentally wore “reverse” outfits to each other, fans posted, and their hair parted in the exact opposite direction.
Troy wore a grey suit with a black shirt, Joe a black suit with a grey shirt, quizzically enough.
One user wrote: “Is it me or do the two male contestants on Jeopardy! look like they were separated at birth?”
Another wondered: “Does anyone else think Troy and Joe both could’ve played Clark Kent at some point in their lives?”
A third asked: “Is anyone else seeing double on tonight’s Jeopardy? Troy and Joe could be brothers!”
A fourth added: “I really like how Troy’s and Joe’s looks are a reverse of each other! Joe’s hair is even parted on the opposite side.”
A fifth agreed on the Superman-in-disguise category: “It was strange watching 2 Clark Kents at the same time!”
As a fifth replied to them: “I know, it was uncanny!”
Troy now qualifies for the 2023 Tournament of Champions, though five wins would seal the deal.
Ken Jennings, 48, has hosted what may be the next big winning streak since all of Troy’s wins have come with huge dollar signs.
WHERE IS: MAYIM?
With her Call Me Kat schedule running longer than expected, Mayim will be commencing her hosting duties with a new teen tournament.
Fans will be getting more of Ken as he will be hosting the new Jeopardy! Masters spinoff, which is scheduled to air during the spring in primetime.
The 20-game, 10-episode special will see all of the players face each other in a round-robin with no one eliminated.
