On the 23rd of March in 1779, Benjamin Franklin achieved a landmark moment for the United States by becoming its first diplomat to be officially recognized by a foreign government. Stationed in France amid the American Revolutionary War, Franklin’s role was essential in securing French alliance against the British. His diplomatic efforts came to fruition with the signing of the Treaty of Paris in 1783, which officially concluded the war and recognized the United States as a separate, sovereign state.

Final Jeopardy Video – Friday, 27 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.
