Last night, two Mormons competed on the popular trivia show Jeopardy! and one came away with incredible winnings. 

Brandon Randall, a BYU student, and Elisabeth Larsen, a stay-at-home mom and online adjunct professor, made up two of the three contestants on the show.

Before competing, however, Larsen and Randall shared some rather interesting tidbits about themselves. 

Randall, who said on the show that his dream was to someday own a cow, tried to explain why his dream wasn't something else to show host Alex Trebek.

"I just love cows. They seem cool, they make cheese and milk—" 

"I don't want you to go any farther," Trebek interrupted. "That's it. That's all I want to know."

Larsen also shared that her friends knew her love of Jeopardy! and dedicated her baby shower to the trivia game show. 

"They had a few different categories. One was "Rhymes with My Son's Name." They had baby trivia. It was the best," she says on the show. 

In the end, Randall beat the returning champion with the incredible winnings of $20,001 and Larsen took second with $2,000. 

Tonight, Randall will return to the show. Watch his progress to find out if he can defend his returning champion status.
