“Best final answer in game show history” for 400, Alex.
A laid back but gutsy teenager stole the show on “Jeopardy” Tuesday night with what many are saying is the most extraordinary “Final Jeopardy” answer in the game show’s history.
Leonard Cooper, 17, won this week’s “Jeopardy Teen Tournament” challenge with an epic response that left his competitors shocked and host Alex Trebek chuckling.
With Cooper’s bank reading $37,000, well ahead of his two opponents, before the final question, Trebek delivered the “Final Jeopardy” answer.
“On June 6, 1944,” he said, “The eyes of the world are upon you.”
Cooper didn’t know the answer, but wrote a memorable line that secured his victory.
“Who is some guy in Normandy. But I just won $75,000!” he wrote.
A gleeful Trebek responded, “You did indeed, way to go, come on over here!”
The correct answer was Dwight D. Eisenhower.
