 How To Win On Jeopardy
I estimate the typical Jeopardy contestant on the show would average around $24,000 if you adjusted for Daily Doubles and Final Jeopardy and eliminated competition — in other words, if nobody were able to beat him or her to the buzzer.
Jeopardy is not going to ask about Li (unless they go in the direction of giving the name and asking for the empire, in which case it would be easy to guess), but Typhoid Mary — who remains a topic of interest — comes up all the time.
For instance, Jeopardy would never ask for the atomic number of the element fermium, but they would definitely expect you to know who Enrico Fermi is — so you'd be wasting your time and energy by learning all the atomic numbers when you could be learning about prominent physicists.

 Reference.com/Encyclopedia/Jeopardy!
The "Jeopardy!" concept was originally created by Merv Griffin, who wanted to take the format of a television quiz show and make it more enticing by speeding up the game and putting a twist on the format.
The name "Jeopardy" was coined when, according to Griffin, a skeptical producer rejected the show, claiming "it doesn't have enough jeopardies" (a reasonable complaint, since a winning player could, without the "Daily Double" betting answers Griffin eventually devised, maintain his or her lead relatively easily by avoiding risk).
In "Final Jeopardy!", the host first announces the category, then the show goes into a commercial break (during which the staff comes on stage and advises the contestants while barriers are placed between the players to discourage looking at one another's answers).

 How to get Jeopardy! tickets
Three contestants vie to answer a series of questions, on a wide variety of subjects, but the show's questions are provided in the form of an "answer", while the contestants must phrase their answers in the form of a "question".
The first of the three contestants to "buzz in" gives what he or she hope is the correct "question", which in this instance might be "What are the two largest states in the U.S.?" Each correct answer wins a dollar amount - and the higher the dollar amount, the more difficult the question.
The game's second round is called "Double Jeopardy" because the dollar amounts of the questions are double that of the first round.

Most years, the Celebrity Jeopardy shows are usually broadcast in April and May.

 Jeopardy
One Daily Double was concealed somewhere on the board, for which the dollar amount was thrown out, and the contestant who chose it could wager any or all of their earnings to that point on their ability to come up with the correct question.
For Final Jeopardy, all three contestants secretly wagered any or all of their earnings after the subject of the Final Jeopardy answer was shown, and then wrote their questions down to the Final Jeopardy answer on cards.
The player with the most money after Final Jeopardy was the winner, and returned the next day (although all contestants kept the money they had made during the game).

 Legal Definition of Double Jeopardy
'[T]he Double Jeopardy Clause protects against three distinct abuses: [1] a second prosecution for the same offense after acquittal; [2] a second prosecution for the same offense after conviction; and [3] multiple punishments for the same offense.' U.S. v.
U.S., 220 U.S. 338, 345 (1911) (early precedent establishing that in a subsequent prosecution '[w]hile it is true that the conduct of the accused was one and the same, two offenses resulted, each of which had an element not embraced in the other').
But, double jeopardy may exist if the federal prosecutors were mere 'tools' of the state or that the federal proceeding was a 'sham' carried out at the behest of the state.

 FindLaw: U.S. Constitution: Fifth Amendment: Annotations pg. 2 of 16
Of course, a defendant's due process rights, absent double jeopardy consideration per se, might be violated if the State ''creat[ed] a hardship so acute and shocking as to be unendurable,'' but that was not the case in Palko.
Because one prime purpose of the clause is the protection against the burden of multiple trials, a defendant who raises and loses a double jeopardy claim during pretrial or trial may immediately appeal the ruling, a rare exception to the general rule prohibiting appeals from nonfinal orders.
Bretz, 437 U.S. (1978) (dissenting), Justice Powell attributed to inadvertence the broadening of the ''rubric'' of double jeopardy to incorporate the common law rule against dismissal of the jury prior to verdict, a question the majority passed over as being ''of academic interest only.''
