Jeopardy! is all set to return with a new episode on Monday, February 6, 2023. The upcoming episode of the show will feature the return of Matthew Marcus, who began his streak on a great note, making approximately $66,000 in his two days on the show so far.
The new season of the show has seen quite a few ups and downs in champions, with most participants struggling to make a memorable streak. Cris Pannullo and Ray Lalonde are the only ones to have a headline-worthy streak, which is in sharp contrast to the previous season.
In the upcoming episode, 2-day champion Matthew Marcus, a software developer from Portland, Oregon, will face off against Tanya Parrott, a librarian from Gainesville, Virginia, and Jesse Lampert, a sales executive from Los Angeles, California. Marcus is getting ready to play his third game, which will allow him to take a step forward in the right direction. By now, most fans would be rooting hard to see a memorable streak come to life, but Matthew has a lot of work to do before that happens.
Jeopardy! is one of the most popular shows in the world owing to its engaging nature and offbeat format. The game show has managed to outlast the test of time, having originally begun in 1964, when the world was quite different. The show is currently more popular than it has ever been. Alongside clever use of promotional tactics, the final round of the game show is one of the major reasons for its soaring popularity.
Jeopardy!'s final round has many challenges that make it stand out from its competition. This includes the show's ability to allow viewers to participate from the comfort of their homes. Viewers can do this by guessing the correct answer to the final question before the episode airs. However, doing this every day can be quite a cumbersome task. Hence, we have compiled the question, answer, and other relevant details from the upcoming episode below.

The final question for the upcoming round of the show reads:
“1917’s “Elements of Trench Warfare” said this Old West item was “difficult to destroy” & “difficult to get through.””
