About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Wednesday, 15 November 2023
In 2017, the remains of Salvador Dalí, the famed surrealist artist, were exhumed as part of a paternity case. Remarkably, Dalí’s mustache was found to still retain its distinctive “10-past-10 position,” a detail highlighted by the Spanish media. This quirky feature of Dalí’s appearance was as much a part of his artistic persona as his surreal and imaginative art. The exhumation was necessitated by a claim from a woman asserting she was Dalí’s daughter, but DNA tests later disproved this claim.
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.
