More information about Final Jeopardy:

The Marquess of Queensbury Rules is the code of rules for boxing matches. They were written in the 1860s by Welshman John Graham Chambers, and endorsed by the Marquess of Queensbury. Their main change from previous rules was that gloves were mandated; this rule-set also set the length of rounds to three minutes.

The term “Marquess of Queensbury Rules” also can be used to refer to sportsmanship and fair play.

Since Alex Trebek’s diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer, many community members have been raising money. The Jeopardy! Fan Online Store is as well! All proceeds from any “Keep The Faith And We’ll Win” shirt sold will be donated to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. To date, nearly $500 has been raised.)

  1. Difficult final

  2. Dr. Joyce Brothers would have known that answer (question).

  3. So how does today’s Final Jeopardy question honor nobelman John Sholto Douglas? Did he change his name to Welshman John Graham Chambers??? Sorry, I don’t get this one…

  4. I would have bet big on this category… and I would have lost. I’ve heard of the answer but it wasn’t coming to me.

    I predict a triple stumper, but we’ll see.

    • I’ve heard of the Queensbury rules too, and might have gotten it if the category had been boxing terms as opposed to sports terms, but if you’ve never heard of them, the category wouldn’t matter. My mind didn’t go to boxing at all. 🥊😕

  5. Gauravi with a $1001 bet would have won in this scenario, but congrats to Vinny in last place entering FJ, the new winner though missing.

  6. I’m curious if Jeopardy staff test questions ahead of time, i.e., they objectively know how hard some questions are going to be? This one seems to be one of the hardest I’ve seen.

  7. Gauravi definitely didn’t wager correctly here, a $601 wager would have been just fine in my opinion. Either way, it worked out well for Vinny, so congrats to him!

  8. i basically knew it was that term and was named after that man’s title but couldn’t get the wording (marquis of X-bery rules or even some amalgam of that)

    anyway, find FJ success is auto-correlated. i go on long successful and unsuccessful streaks. and i think it’s real. i’ll have to track it. was on a 2 week heater and now am ice cold (although i’ve come close on the FJ’s, just can’t get the exact answer)………. how many shows do they do at one time?

  9. I’m sure there are some lower, but what is the lowest final score that ever won a game?

  10. Congratulations to our -again- new champion !
    Unfortunately 2 DDs missed and at FJ! the usual “foreign” weakness, though the rules are international but originated in London, and that a while ago. (1865).

  11. I got it, though have never heard of Douglas, so it is not an entirely impossible question.

  12. We start the week with a triple stumper.

    This should have been a TOC question! I’m watching the show now.

  14. There was a key word in here that should’ve pointed to the answer. That word was “Nobleman.” That should take you to someone with a British peerage title…however, the title of Marquess is hardly the first that comes to mind…Prince, Duke, Earl, etc, all came to mind first.

  15. Knew it right off the bat –easy for someone with a knowledge of sports history, IMO.

  16. It’s always easy when you know the answer…or have time to look up someone’s reference to a 1957 game show appearance….

  17. I came up with Kingsbury, instead.

  18. Yep, same. If you know ANYTHING about boxing, you know M of Q Rules.
