Jeopardy! is all set to return with a new episode on Friday, April 19, 2024, concluding what has been an excellent week in the game show so far. The 40th season, though it had several delays, has gotten off to a good start and looks on its way to becoming another great overall for the game show, which has rarely failed to deliver. Sadly, last night saw the end to Alison Betts’s intriguing run after she fell prey to Marko Saric, who had quite a game for himself last night.

In the upcoming round of the game show, freshly crowned champion Marko Saric, a math professor from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, will face off against Scott Nations, a financial engineer and option trader from Chicago, Illinois, and Molly Fitzpatrick, a writer from Queens, New York. Marko Saric took down a strong Alison Bett's but began his Jeopardy! journey with a modest $3,799 on his first day. He will surely want to improve on that a lot before he gives way to another champion.

Jeopardy! is perhaps one of the most renowned names in the game show industry. It began airing in the early 1960s and has since continued to garner attention and viewers across the world. Chiefly due to its offbeat format and its engaging nature, the game show has become one of the most popular ones in its genre in America and beyond. The final round of the game show is also a primary reason for its soaring popularity.

The final round of Jeopardy! has many elements that make it stand out. This includes the ability to allow viewer participation. Viewers can do this by guessing the correct answer to the final question ahead of the episode's air time. Over the years, this has become a common practice for the fans of the game show. However, as this can still be a complicated process, we have compiled the question, answer, and other relevant details from the upcoming episode below.
