About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Monday, 11 March 2024

Ludwig von Rochau, a figure involved in the unsuccessful 1833 insurrection in Germany and later recognized for his political thought, introduced the concept of “Realpolitik.” This term refers to the practice of prioritizing strategic and practical objectives over moral or ideological principles in political actions. The essence of Realpolitik lies in its focus on the pragmatic aspects of decision-making, particularly in matters of national power and security, sidestepping ethical and moral considerations. Rochau laid out this idea in his work “Grundsatze der Realpolitik,” published in 1853, drawing from his firsthand experiences with political upheaval and the intricate dynamics of power that define state relations.

Final Jeopardy Video – Monday, 11 March 2024

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.
