About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Wednesday, 1 May 2024

In 1694, the renowned French botanist Joseph Pitton de Tournefort published his influential work “Éléments de botanique,” which was one of the most comprehensive texts on plant classification at the time. The book listed 698 genera of plants, which included well-known examples like Ambrosia (ragweed) and Chrysanthemum. Tournefort’s work laid important groundwork in the field of botany by systematizing plant taxonomy, grouping plants based on their flower structure. This effort to organize and classify plant genus (singular)/genera (plural) based on observable characteristics was a significant step towards the later development of modern plant taxonomy, which was further refined by other botanists, such as Carl Linnaeus.

Final Jeopardy Video – Wednesday, 1 May 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.
