About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Thursday, 1 February 2024

Adelaide, the capital of South Australia, holds the distinction of being the first Australian city to form a municipal government. It was named in honor of Queen Adelaide, wife of King William IV, and was founded as a planned colony in 1836. Renowned for its structured grid design and plentiful green areas, Adelaide’s establishment with a municipal government marks its early and progressive development. The city’s name reflects the British colonial influence on Australian urban nomenclature during that era.

Final Jeopardy Video – Thursday, 1 February 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.
