The teenage "Jeopardy" contestant didn't particularly look the part of a champion with his towering afro and informal wardrobe, but he turned a big Daily Double gamble into a Teen Tournament win this week.
Yahoo!TV reports Leonard Cooper did come up with what was possibly the best ever Final Jeopardy answer.
Cooper went into Final Jeopardy round with $37,000, not enough to win outright but it didn't keep him from taking the big prize.
With the clue, "On June 6, 1944, he said 'The eyes of the world are upon you,'" Cooper bet $0 and wrote the response: "Who is some guy in Normandy, but I just won $75,000!"
Even though one of his competitors had enough to beat him if he answered correctly, but he didn't and Cooper walked away with the big prize.
Cooper's comeback even delighted the normally staid host, Alex Trebek, who replied to the bold answer with "You did indeed. Way to go."
