About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Friday, 6 October 2023
Madame Maute de Fleurville, who was related by marriage to the poet Paul Verlaine, taught piano to Claude Debussy, a composer known for his role in Impressionist music. Debussy later set Verlaine’s poems to music in his “Fêtes galantes” song cycles. This intersection of poetry and music is a notable example of the cross-disciplinary influences that were common in the arts during Debussy’s time. His compositions are famous for evoking natural landscapes and various moods, leaving a significant imprint on classical music history.

Final Jeopardy Video – Friday, 6 October 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.
