Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
Interestingly, the beginning of the Book of Exodus, “Now these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt” was an $800 clue on Wednesday, February 8, in AND SO IT BEGINS.
Moving onto today’s Final, Numbers concludes the story of Israel’s exodus from Egypt and their journey to take possession of The Promised Land. It takes its name from the two censuses taken of the Israelites.
Now also seems like a good time to remind people that on Jeopardy!, contestants and game material are selected randomly and independently, and yes, sometimes, a Yeshiva student gets a Bible category in Final Jeopardy, just like sometimes an English professor gets a literature category.
