About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Tuesday, 12 September 2023

The Styx River is a pivotal concept in various cultural narratives, especially in ancient Greek myths and seminal literary works such as Dante’s “Inferno” and Milton’s “Paradise Lost.” In the lore of ancient Greece, the Styx serves as the dividing line between the earthly realm and the Underworld governed by Hades. This river, one of five in the Underworld, is so reviled that not even gods would dare swear falsely by it.

In “Paradise Lost,” the Styx is filled with abhorrent qualities and is linked to expressions like a “flood of deadly hate,” highlighting its function as a boundary within Hell and its sinister and detestable character.

On the other hand, Dante’s “Inferno” shows the Styx as sustained by a “gloomy brook,” placing it in the fifth layer of Hell where the angry and the sullen receive their punishment.

Final Jeopardy Video – Tuesday, 12 September 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.
