Celebrity Jeopardy may be familiar to all of you. People may think it to be the Saturday Night Live sketch that saw Will Ferrell play a beleaguered Alex Trebek against very dumb parody versions of known celebs at the very first. Most importantly Sean Connery. There have been a lot of real ‘Celebrity Jeopardy‘ tournaments over the years. But those were usually yearly basis. And this new version of ‘Celebrity Jeopardy‘ is a weekly event. That’s going to be very exciting.
This is something that we know about Celebrity Jeopardy!

What is the format of Celebrity Jeopardy?
It’s the same as Jeopardy but with celebrities. The format will be the same. Three contestants will compete against each other by answering trivia questions in the form of a question hoping to rack up the most money. But this time contestants will not play for themselves but for some charity.
The only thing that may differ from the normal rules is that there may be two games instead of a single game as there is a complete hour unlike the old pattern of Jeopardy.
