About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Wednesday, 4 October 2023
In his will dated 1895, Joseph Pulitzer made it abundantly clear that the money earmarked for prizes was to be solely dedicated to that end. The famed journalist and publisher of newspapers designated a part of his wealth to create the Pulitzer Prizes, which started being distributed in 1917, well after he passed away in 1911. The prizes have since stood as a hallmark of excellence in the realms of journalism, literature, and musical composition. Pulitzer’s strict stipulation ensured the financial integrity of these awards, mirroring his own lifelong devotion to journalistic and literary quality.

Final Jeopardy Video – Wednesday, 4 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.
