Teen gives best Final Jeopardy! answer ever

I love watchig Jeopardy and last night's show, with teen contestants was pretty cool. 

With his towering afro and (ahem) informal attire, teen contestant Leonard Cooper didn't look the part of a "Jeopardy!" champion. But he parlayed one big Daily Double gamble into a Teen Tournament win last night, topping it off with what has to be considered the best Final Jeopardy! answer of all time.

Leonard came into Final Jeopardy! with a total of $37,000 -- an impressive sum, though not enough to win outright. But that didn't stop Leonard from calling his shot. Faced with the clue, "On June 6, 1944, he said, 'The eyes of the world are upon you,'" Leonard wagered $0 and responded: "Who is some guy in Normandy, but I just won $75,000!" 

If you missed it, check out the video... love this kid! LOL

My husband was telling me about this last night, reminded me of the first guy that won on Who Wants to be a Millionaire.
