About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Wednesday, 15 November 2023
The Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C.’s West Potomac Park is a tribute to Thomas Jefferson, America’s third president, and a symbol of the nation’s history. Proposed in 1926 during Calvin Coolidge’s presidency, the memorial commemorated the sesquicentennial of Jefferson’s birth.
Construction of the memorial commenced in 1939 and concluded in 1943, under Franklin D. Roosevelt’s administration. Reflecting Jefferson’s architectural tastes and his penchant for neoclassical design, the memorial features a dome reminiscent of the Roman Pantheon and is adorned with circular marble steps. Inside, it houses a 19-foot tall bronze likeness of Jefferson, crafted by Rudulph Evans, amidst various inscriptions of Jefferson’s writings, including parts of the Declaration of Independence.

Final Jeopardy Video – Wednesday, 15 November 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.
