About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Wednesday, 8 November 2023
In Captain James Cook’s journal entry dated January 30, 1774, he expressed a profound sense of ambition, writing about his drive to venture further than any person before him, to the very limits of human capability.
Cook, an esteemed figure in maritime history, earned recognition for his extensive expeditions across the Pacific Ocean. His exploratory missions led to the first European encounters with Australia’s eastern coast and the Hawaiian Islands, as well as the inaugural complete navigation around New Zealand.
These journal reflections of Cook have drawn parallels to the iconic tagline from the “Star Trek” series, “to boldly go where no man has gone before.” The line from the original series, introduced in the 1960s, embodies the essence of discovery and the endless quest for knowledge that defines the show’s enduring appeal.

Final Jeopardy Video – Wednesday, 8 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.
