ANSWER: The Guinness Book of Records
About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Tuesday, 26 September 2023
The original purpose of the Guinness Book of Records, known as Guinness World Records, created in the 1950s, was to serve as an arbiter in disagreements commonly found in pubs. Sir Hugh Beaver, then the head of Guinness Brewery, conceived the idea following a heated argument about Europe’s fastest game bird. To resolve similar debates, he enlisted the services of Norris and Ross McWhirter, twins skilled in fact-gathering.
What started as a reference tool for settling casual debates gained traction far beyond that scope. People found the compilation of extreme achievements, both human and natural, to be captivating. Now updated yearly, the book has transcended its initial function to become a cultural phenomenon, inspiring a range of media from TV programs to museums. It remains the go-to source for verification of world records.

Watch all the videos from today’s Jeopardy episode below, including highlights, behind the scenes outtakes and full episodes.
Final Jeopardy is the final round of the popular American television game show Jeopardy!, in which participants test their knowledge in numerous areas by answering questions. In Final Jeopardy, participants are given a single clue and must wager a percentage of their existing earnings based on their confidence in their ability to successfully respond.
Each contestant surreptitiously writes down their wager during the commercial break. The Final Jeopardy clue is presented when the programme resumes, and participants have 30 seconds to write down their solution in the form of a question (e.g., “What is…?”). When the timer runs out, the host, reveals each contestant’s response and wager in ascending order of their pre-Final Jeopardy scores. The scores of contestants are adjusted based on whether their response is correct or incorrect, as well as the amount wagered. At the end of the round, the contestant with the highest score is proclaimed the winner.
