Jeopardy! is ready to return with another exciting episode on December 7, 2022, featuring a new champion. Yes, someone has finally beaten the magnificent Cris Pannullo. The brilliant contestant ruled for 21 days before Andy Tirrell defeated him in the previous episode, creating history for himself.
In the upcoming episode, Andy Tirrell, a political science & international relations professor from San Diego, California, Tammy Groner, a legal assistant from Hamilton, New Jersey, and Ron Cheung, an economics professor from Lakewood, Ohio, will play against each other to stay in the game. Andy Tirrell had a great game last round, earning $15,399 in the process.
Widely considered one of the greatest game shows of all time, Jeopardy! dates back to the early 1960s. Over the many years of its existence, it has become one of the most decorated game shows in the country and around the world. A lot of credit for this goes to the unique format and offbeat nature of the show. Additionally, the final round also provides some much-needed boost to its growing popularity.
The final round of the show consists of many challenges that set it apart from the competition. But what makes it truly unique is that it allows viewers from around the world to be a part of the action from the comfort of their homes. Viewers can do this by guessing the correct answer to the final question ahead of the episode's airtime. However, as that can often be a tedious task, we have compiled every relevant detail, including the solution to the final question for the upcoming round below.
December 7, 2022, Wednesday: Today's Final Jeopardy! question
The final question for the upcoming round of the show reads:
"He was sworn in twice as President within 2 years, first by his father & then later by a former U.S. President."
This question is from the category "U.S. Presidents." Compared to many of the show's recurring topics, this is a much simpler one, owing to how narrow it is. It'll be interesting to see how the participants handle it, especially now that Cris Pannullo is gone.
