Jimmy kicked off the show by letting his at-home audience know that he was practicing his hosting duties with his children.

The 52-year-old TV personality then went on to introduce the adorable tots by stating that his daughter loved to draw while his son loved Spiderman and T-rexes.

Without wasting any more time, the party of three went into the show with Jimmy asking questions on topics the two children would know all about.

While some of the subjects ranged from what animals ate bananas to the names of the sisters on Frozen, others focused on superheroes, the story of "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," dinosaurs, and video games.

In an alternate version of calling a friend, Jimmy instructed Jane to assist Billy when he asked for Spider-Man's real name.

E! Online reported that Jane and Billy made it to the final round, which came with the question about who their favorite person was.

Jimmy offered the children A) Daddy, B) Daddy, C) Daddy, or D) Mommy, as options to pick from. In a sweet move, Jane turned to her father and answered:

"Just because we're [on] this Millionaire game and nobody really is here, I have to say—just for this game—Dad."

Even though both kids remained good sports during the game, ET Online noted that Billy lost interest in the game at some point and began asking for a Spiderman-related question.

Even when he made it to the final round, the 2-year-old screamed that he didn't want to play anymore.

Jane, however, maintained her good-natured spirit throughout the game, which prompted her father to joke that she was more willing to play than her brother.
