ANSWER: Christopher Columbus
About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Wednesday, 25 October 2023
The correspondence that opens with “on the thirty-third day after I had left Cadiz, I reached the Indian Ocean” is credited to Christopher Columbus. This Italian explorer penned the letter to describe his seminal 1492 expedition. Departing from Spain with the objective of finding a western route to Asia, he instead made landfall on what would later be known as the American continents.
Columbus mistakenly believed he had reached Asia, a misconception he maintained until his death. However, it became clear in later years that he had in fact unveiled new continents altogether. His discovery was a pivotal moment that marked the beginning of the Age of Exploration, an era during which European countries embarked on overseas expeditions to explore and stake claims on new lands.

Final Jeopardy Video – Wednesday, 25 October 2023
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.
