Correct response: What is the bikini?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
The bikini was created by French fashion designer Louis Réard in 1946; it got its name from Bikini Atoll, the location of a recent French nuclear test, because it was so earth-shaking. Because Réard knew it would make headlines, the first bikini (worn by Casino de Paris dancer Micheline Bernardini at the Molitor pool in Paris) was made out of a newspaper-print fabric. The original bikini required less than 30 square inches of fabric; Réard always said that a swimsuit wasn’t a true bikini unless you could slip it through a wedding ring.
Originally viewed as very indecent, it took a few years for it to truly catch on; even a decade later, Modern Girl magazine said “it is inconceivable that any girl with tact and decency would ever wear such a thing”.
Reflecting back in 1974, Reard said, “In 1946, France had just come out of the war and people had need to live again, I felt I had to design something that would make people understand that life can start over and be beautiful.”
