Louis C.K. on 'Jeopardy!'

Journalists are no match for Louis C.K.

The Louie star and comedian was a force to be reckoned with when he faced off against CNN's Kate Bolduan and the Washington Post's Jonathan Capehart on Jeopardy! Wednesday night.

"This game was a runaway for Louis, he couldn't be caught," said host Alex Trebek of C.K. claiming the win during "Power Players Week," which invites famous guests to play for their respective charities.

Both Bolduan and Capehart suffered moments of embarrassment, with Bolduan even joking about walking off the stage when she answered a question with "dilute" instead of "dilate" (C.K. swooped in to give the correct answer).

In the end, C.K. beat the journalists with a total score of $18,399, to their $10,000 and $14,800. His winnings, a total of $50,000, went to his charity, the Fistula Foundation, which works in Asia and Africa to help women who have suffered obstetric fistulas during childbirth.
