About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Tuesday, 24 October 2023
Bob Dylan and George Bernard Shaw are unique in being the sole recipients of both a Nobel Prize in Literature and an Academy Award. Bob Dylan, known for his influential American songwriting, was given the Nobel Prize in 2016 for his innovation in poetic forms within American music. He also snagged an Oscar in 2001 for the Best Original Song “Things Have Changed,” featured in the movie “Wonder Boys.”
On the other hand, George Bernard Shaw, the Irish dramatist and critic, earned his Nobel Prize in 1925. He was a vociferous commentator on social issues and utilized his works to convey his views on a variety of topics, from religion to education. Shaw’s Oscar win was for Best Adapted Screenplay, based on his own play “Pygmalion,” which later inspired the beloved musical “My Fair Lady.”

Final Jeopardy Video – Tuesday, 24 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.
