About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Thursday, 27 July 2023
The French Foreign Legion, established in 1831, is a unique branch of the French Army designed to include foreign nationals willing to serve in the French military. It’s well-known for its diverse roster of members, which has encompassed individuals from various nationalities, such as Germans, Turks, and Chinese.
The Legion was primarily intended to serve as an auxiliary unit, to be deployed when it would be impractical or diplomatically difficult to utilize ordinary French troops.
Its creation was specifically timed to supplement the French military’s manpower needs during their campaigns in Algeria, a territory that France controlled from 1830 until 1962.

Final Jeopardy Video – Thursday, 27 July 2023
Watch all the videos from today’s Jeopardy episode below, including highlights, behind the scenes outtakes and full episodes.
Final Jeopardy is the final round of the popular American television game show Jeopardy!, in which participants test their knowledge in numerous areas by answering questions. In Final Jeopardy, participants are given a single clue and must wager a percentage of their existing earnings based on their confidence in their ability to successfully respond.
Each contestant surreptitiously writes down their wager during the commercial break. The Final Jeopardy clue is presented when the programme resumes, and participants have 30 seconds to write down their solution in the form of a question (e.g., “What is…?”). When the timer runs out, the host, reveals each contestant’s response and wager in ascending order of their pre-Final Jeopardy scores. The scores of contestants are adjusted based on whether their response is correct or incorrect, as well as the amount wagered. At the end of the round, the contestant with the highest score is proclaimed the winner.
