ANSWER: Gonzo Journalism
About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Friday, 28 July 2023
Gonzo journalism is a distinctive journalistic style that blurs the line between reporter and subject, and fiction and nonfiction. It’s known for its subjective style, first-person narration, and the infusion of personal experiences and emotions of the journalist into the story.
There are multiple theories about the origin of the term “gonzo”. One suggests that it was derived from Cajun slang, referring to a kind of free-spirited jazz music. Another theory proposes that it originated from Boston slang for a person on a drinking or substance abuse spree. Both interpretations could symbolize the unconstrained and unconventional nature of gonzo journalism.
Hunter S. Thompson, an American author and journalist, made this style of journalism popular. His book “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” is a classic example of gonzo journalism.

Final Jeopardy Video – Friday, 28 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.
