About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Wednesday, 26 July 2023
“Scènes de la Vie de Bohème” by Henri Murger, a work inspired by his own experiences of poverty in the bohemian community of the Latin Quarter in Paris, provided the narrative basis for an opera produced in 1896. Living in a cold attic apartment, Murger captured both the charm and hardships of this unconventional lifestyle, painting an engaging, if romanticized, picture of bohemian life in Paris in the mid-19th century.
Giacomo Puccini’s “La Bohème,” first performed in Turin, draws from Murger’s work, focusing on the lives and loves of four friends navigating the bohemian lifestyle. The poignant narrative of the opera, featuring the ill-fated love affair of the poet Rodolfo and the seamstress Mimi, deeply resonated with audiences and has secured the opera’s place as one of the most frequently performed worldwide.

Final Jeopardy Video – Wednesday, 26 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.
