‘Teen Jeopardy’ Contestant Gives Most Memorable Final Answer Ever (VIDEO)

Posted by Lindsay Mannering

teen jeopardyIf you thought the funniest thing to ever happen to Jeopardy was SNL's Celebrity Jeopardy spoof that included such classic phrases as "I'll take the penis mightier" and "Who are three people who've never been in my kitchen", you might have to reconsider your stance after watching this video of real-life Teen Jeopardy contestant Leonard Cooper. The 17-year-old high school student from Little Rock, Arkansas took home the top prize Tuesday night and was crowned champion ... but it's the way he won and how he looked so damn cool doing it that's made him an overnight sensation.

And I mean, damn cool. People are calling it the most extraordinary final Jeopardy answer in the game show's history.

After Leonard went balls to the wall on the Daily Double and risked $18,000, and won, bringing his total to over $36,000, he had some confidence going into the final round.

And shit, did he know how to make those other boys pay.

The clue was: "On June 6, 1944, he said, 'The eyes of the world are upon you.'"

The question, according to Leonard was: "Who is some guy in Normandy. But I just won $75,000!"

Having done some math, Leonard knew he'd come in first place and would win the grand prize of $75K. And it was awesome. Leonard, in the coolest olive green button-down I've seen, and with an afro that won't quit, just schooled everyone in the art of #winning.

Watch Leonard's rise to fame. Please. You have to. It's fantastic.
