About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Wednesday, 24 January 2024

In the 1983 film “Scarface,” screenwriter Oliver Stone chose the name Tony Montana for the main character as a tribute to Joe Montana, the quarterback who secured a Super Bowl win for the San Francisco 49ers in 1982. Joe Montana’s impressive performance in Super Bowl XVI and his ensuing fame during that era are believed to have inspired Stone’s naming of the character, famously portrayed by Al Pacino. Tony Montana in “Scarface” emerged as a symbolic figure in popular culture, and the film itself is celebrated as a seminal work in the crime and drama categories.

Final Jeopardy Video – Wednesday, 24 January 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.
