ANSWER: Bobby socks
About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Monday, 3 July 2023
“Bobby socks,” or “bobby sox,” refer to a specific style of women’s socks that gained widespread popularity in the United States during the 1940s and 1950s. The term “bobby” is derived from the word meaning “to cut short,” reflecting the unique characteristic of these socks – a length that only reached the ankle or lower calf, in contrast to the longer stockings traditionally worn by women and girls.
These socks were generally white in color and often featured a fold or cuff at the top. They were frequently worn with casual shoes such as saddle shoes or loafers. The trend became a cultural icon of post-war teenage girls, often referred to as “bobby soxers,” and even inspired pop culture nods, such as Frankie Avalon’s song “Bobby Sox to Stockings.”

Final Jeopardy Video – Monday, 3 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.
