Jeopardy! is all set to return with a new and exciting episode on Wednesday, June 12, 2024, bringing back another exciting round. The current season had a slow beginning due to the WGA strike in 2023, but it looks like it the show is completely back to its very best, with one contestant shaking things up in a way few could have imagined.

In the upcoming episode, Adriana Harmeyer, an archivist from West Lafayette, Indiana, will return for her 11th game in a row, a record that could remain untouched for some time. Harmeyer is the 17th player in the history of the game show to achieve this. The archivist will face off against Connor Townsend, an attorney from Chelsea, Michigan, and Enzo Cunanan, a student from Orlando, Florida.

The final round of Jeopardy! is one of the main reasons for its popularity across the world.

Over the years, this has become one of the most common practices for the fans of the game show while watching it.

We have compiled the question, answer, and other relevant details from the upcoming episode below.
