Jeopardy! is all set to return with a new episode on Friday, June 23, 2023. The popular American game show is nearing the end of its 39th season, but in retrospect, this season has been a lot less captivating than the previous one, which saw some fascinatingly long streaks across the season. For the last few days, Ben Goldstein has continued to dominate the game, reminding us of the previous season, which saw many such contestants. Today, Goldstein will play his sixth game, making him one of the standout performers of the 39th season.

In the upcoming episode of the game show, Ben Goldstein, a Content Marketing Strategist from Dexter, Michigan, will play against Donna Matturri, a Librarian from Columbus, Ohio, and Ron Nurwisah, an Editor from Originally Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Goldstein has managed to win $49,298 in five days. While this appears to be exceptionally low for someone with such a long streak, Ben's slow and steady playing style has kept him afloat over the past week.

Jeopardy! is arguably one of the most popular game shows in the world. It began in the early 1960s and has since continued to evolve globally to reach cult status. This is primarily because of the game show's engaging nature and offbeat format, features that have become signatures for the past few decades. Despite being around for so long, the game show has seen a bump in popularity in the past decade, thanks to its offbeat final round.

The final round of the popular American game show is easily one of the main reasons for its soaring popularity. It has many elements that set it apart for the participants. Moreover, the final round also allows viewers to participate from the comfort of their homes. Viewers can do this by guessing the correct answer to the final question ahead of the episode's air time. However, as those can often be a complicated process, we have compiled the question, answer, and other relevant details from the upcoming episode below.
