About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Wednesday, 13 September 2023
On October 26, 1886, Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, the scupltor behind the Statue of Liberty, voiced these sentiments during the iconic monument’s unveiling in New York Harbor.
To Bartholdi, crafting this monumental figure was not just an act of artistry; it signified the realization of his ambition to deepen the friendly ties between France and the United States. The two countries shared a bond that went back to the American Revolution, a bond that included France’s pivotal support for the American cause.
The sculpture itself teems with symbolic undertones. Grasping a torch in one uplifted hand and clutching a tablet in the other, along with a severed chain at her base, the Statue of Liberty stands as a potent symbol of enlightenment and emancipation. The Roman numerals inscribed on the tablet correspond to the date of American independence.

Final Jeopardy Video – Wednesday, 13 September 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.
