About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Thursday, 28 December 2023

In the 20s B.C., the Roman Emperor Augustus’ sister, Octavia Minor, had a notably unique household that resembled the setup of a modern sitcom. This included the twin offspring of Mark Antony and Cleopatra: Alexander Helios and Cleopatra Selene II. After Antony and Cleopatra were defeated and subsequently died, Octavia, who was Antony’s former wife, took in their children.

Octavia was renowned for her moral integrity and kindness. She raised Antony and Cleopatra’s three children – the twins and their younger brother, Ptolemy Philadelphus – in her Roman home, alongside her own children. This blending of families, connecting Roman and Egyptian cultures and merging the lives of children from once-political adversaries, presents a scenario that could easily fuel the plotlines of a contemporary drama or sitcom.

Final Jeopardy Video – Thursday, 28 December 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.
