Teen Leonard Cooper Gives the Most Amazing Final Jeopardy Answer of All Time

Liz Dwyer

Thanks to Arkansas teen Leonard Cooper, this year's Teen Jeopardy tournament, which let's America's high school students show off their academic chops and earn some cash, has been seriously entertaining. As you can see in the final minute of play and Final Jeopardy, he's a risk taker with a serious sense of humor--and it all paid off. Oh, and Questlove has dubbed Leonard his "unofficial kid." Cheers to Leonard for being smart AND winning in life.

    Seriously, who wrote this sentence? What a shame the link is about celebrating the talent of today's teen and the lead sentence would get an "F" in an elementary school class.

      Hi Roxteacher, I wrote that sentence at 6 AM this morning--clearly my excitement over Leonard's win motivated me to put an extra word in there. You are so kind to point it out in such a thoughtful, positive way. Thank you.
