CLUE: After the Vietnam war, Vietnam got bogged down in a campaign against this leader whom it managed to overthrow in 1979


About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Thursday, 18 January 2024

Following the Vietnam War, Vietnam found itself embroiled in a military endeavor against Pol Pot, the ruler of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia. In 1979, this effort culminated with Vietnam successfully toppling Pol Pot’s government. During his rule from 1975 to 1979, Pol Pot’s regime was responsible for the deaths of approximately 1.5 to 2 million people in what is known as the Cambodian genocide. The Vietnamese intervention, while it put an end to Pol Pot’s tyrannical rule, attracted global criticism and resulted in a prolonged and resource-draining conflict for Vietnam, affecting its international relations and post-war restoration. This foray into Cambodia marked a pivotal chapter in the history of Southeast Asia, influencing both regional dynamics and Vietnam’s own trajectory after the war.

Final Jeopardy Video – Thursday, 18 January 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.
