Jeopardy! is all set to return with an all-new episode on Tuesday, May 23, 2023. The game show will bring back Ben Chan for the tenth time, making it a remarkable streak in the books of season 39. This season has seen contestants struggle for a long time to maintain a streak, but the arrival of Ben Chan has effectively changed that.

Before Ben Chan returned to continue his streak, Hannah Wilson also played a great hand, finally giving viewers a taste of the previous season, which saw multiple contestants flourish in the long run.

The upcoming episode will see Ben Chan from Green Bay, Wisconsin play his tenth game against newcomers Danny Leserman from Rancho Palos Verdes, California, and Lynn Di Vito, from Colorado Springs, Colorado. Ben Chan has already amassed $252,600 and has won nine runaway games. He will look forward to taking this streak much further.

Jeopardy! is one of the most popular game shows of all time. It originally aired in the 1960s and has continued to gain momentum through a loyal fanbase. The engaging nature and format of the game show have been pivotal to its growing popularity, which it still enjoys in 2023. This is also partly because of the offbeat final round, which is one of the most prominent reasons the game is so widely known.

The final round of Jeopardy! has many offbeat elements that make it much more fun for the participants. More importantly, it gives viewers the chance to participate in the round from home. Viewers can do this by guessing the correct answer to the final question before the episode's air time. Over the years, this has become a common practice for long-term fans of the show.

However, as this can be complicated to do at times, we have compiled the question, answer, and other relevant details for the upcoming episode.
