Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results and will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early to late evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.

That monograph was written by A. Victor Coonin of Rhodes College.

Did you know: Eduardo’s father, Zeke Sevilla Jr., won Jeopardy!’s first-ever Seniors Tournament back in 1987. The Seniors Tournament was for contestants 50 and older, and was discontinued in the mid-1990s, as the show felt that those contestants were competitive enough in the main game, and the ratings for the tournament did not justify its existence.
