MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki will host the live finals of his game show segment on “Up” tomorrow at 8amET. The contestants will be treated with a surprise, albeit pre-taped, visit from game show legend Alex Trebek.

Trebek is doing the video bonus question, which has featured other notable names in the past, including John Lithgow, Alan Alda, Tony Goldwyn and Hoda Kotb.

The “UP Against the Clock Tournament of Champions” wraps up its second season that has featured both political reporters, members of Congress and MSNBC personalities as contestants. Thomas Roberts, Lawrence O’Donnell, Melissa Harris-Perry, Bob Costas and Lester Holt have all participated.

Kornacki has been obsessed with game shows for quite some time, detailing his passion in a video from 2013 that explains how his segment began. Check out last week’s edition of the political game show below.
