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.
This page on the Empire State Building website is where you can find this information.
The southwest corner of Massachusetts is the part of the state closest to the Empire State Building, and it would be just on the horizon. I personally thought Delaware was the 5th, but its closest point is about 10 miles or so farther away than the closest point of Massachusetts.
From my own knowledge and what people have said in the past on #JeopardyLivePanel, it would not surprise me if the contestants today received a stern “Absolutely no shoutouts in Final Jeopardy! are permitted today” from the producers, as trying to decipher “HI MA & PA” (or other shoutouts that could be construed as state postal abbreviations) would be impossible.
