Tom Brady has managed to avoid eating strawberries for most of his life but was prepared to consume one live on Instagram if "Jeopardy!" champion James Holzhauer lost in his return to the show.

The New England Patriots quarterback made the wager ahead of Monday night's episode, which followed a two-week break for the "Jeopardy!" Teachers Tournament.

Holzhauer - a 34-year-old professional sports gambler - ultimately extended his winning streak to 23 straight games, bringing his total earnings to $1,780,237.

Brady famously claimed he had "never eaten a strawberry in my life" and had "no desire to do that" in a 2016 interview with The Cut. He eventually gave in during an appearance on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" last year.
