About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Monday, 22 January 2024

Both the first Vice President and the first President of the United States who were not native to the original 13 colonies hailed from Kentucky.

Abraham Lincoln holds the distinction of being the first U.S. President born outside the original 13 colonies. His birthplace was Kentucky, which joined the Union in 1792. Lincoln, who became the nation’s 16th President, was born in 1809, well after Kentucky’s admission as a state.

Similarly, Alben W. Barkley, also a native of Kentucky, was the first Vice President born beyond the original 13 colonies. Serving as Vice President under Harry S. Truman from 1949 to 1953, Barkley was born in 1877, decades following Kentucky’s accession to statehood.

Final Jeopardy Video – Monday, 22 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.
