Finally, ‘Jeopardy!‘ gets entertaining!
Who would’ve thought that one of the best ‘Final Jeopardy!’ moments to ever grace the stage would come from not a scholar or professor, but a teenager? Leonard Cooper — the recent ‘Jeopardy!’ Teen Tournament winner — gave host Alex Trebek, his fellow contestants and the audience a hearty laugh with his Final Jeopardy! answer, one that was surely unexpected.
In the category of ‘Military Men,’ with the clue being “On June 6, 1944, he said, ‘The eyes of the world are upon you,” Leonard admittedly didn’t know the correct answer. But that didn’t matter because he still responded like a true champ: “Who is some guy in Normandy. But I just won $75,000!”
By the way, the answer is Dwight D. Eisenhower — in case you were wondering.
