About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Tuesday, 2 January 2024

When Pope John Paul II visited Los Angeles in 1987, mischief-makers altered the famed Hollywood sign, masking a letter to spell out “Holywood” instead. This temporary change was a whimsical tribute to the Pope’s visit, playfully acknowledging the spiritual importance of his tour in the city. Perched on Mount Lee in the Hollywood Hills region of the Santa Monica Mountains, the Hollywood sign is a renowned symbol of Los Angeles. It’s not uncommon for the sign to be the target of pranks or modifications, especially during notable events or as expressions of protest or jest.

Final Jeopardy Video – Tuesday, 2 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.
