Mark those calendars, Survivor fans!

A Survivor 45 alum is appearing on an upcoming episode of the quiz show Jeopardy!.

Drew Basile was recently seen in Fiji as a Survivor 45 cast member.

And if you told Survivor fans watching that season that Drew would later play Jeopardy!, nobody would have been surprised.

Drew was part of the Survivor season that saw Dee Valladares beat Austin Li Coon at the final Tribal Council. Jake O’Kane finished in third place.

Drew finished in sixth place, making it to Day 23 before getting eliminated and becoming the sixth jury member. He voted for Austin to win, but Dee emerged with the 5-3 victory.

“IT’S HAPPENING! I’m going on JEOPARDY June 19th,” Drew announced with a new X post.

“The haters have long called me a know-it-all. It’s time to prove them right. #Jeopardy,” he added.

His X announcement included two photos. The first shows Drew posing with the new Jeopardy! host, Ken Jennings.

Drew is shown standing at his podium in the second photo.

Check your local television listings for the exact time of the episode, but Drew Basile will be playing on Wednesday, June 19.
