Have you ever seen a tie on "Jeopardy"? Neither have we. Until now.

In the finale of the 2014 "Jeopardy" Teen Tournament, contestants Jeff Xie and Alan Koolik magically drew at a two-day total of $54,200 on Friday, August 1. We have waited for this day for years, often daydreaming of what sort of hellish cage match rumble throw-down would take place when two contestants developed a case of cerebral lockjaw. Alas, it turns out that a tiebreaker is simply a one-off question, the winner being the first to buzz in with the correct answer.

Watch Alex Trebek rush into the tiebreaker, anti-climatically crowning Xie the tournament champion with a prize of $75,000 below.
