(ABC NEWS) -- Leonard Cooper was sitting in last place as the "Jeopardy! Teen
Tournament" was winding down, but the teen, dressed casual with a giant
afro, pulled off an epic comeback to take home the win.
Cooper's comeback began with the question, "Clavicle is another name
for this bone." Cooper pointed to his clavicle as he said, "What's the
uh...neck bone...collar bone."
He then scored a Daily Double question where he wagered $18,000 from

crept on his face as he answered correctly, "What is a jury?"
As the tournament headed into Final Jeopardy, Cooper held the lead
with $37,000. He pulled off an epic prank on the quiz show before taking
home the win.
The Final Jeopardy question was "On June 6, 1944 he said, 'The eyes of the world are upon you."

Since neither of the other contestants had enough to take the lead, Cooper walked home with the grand prize of $75,000.
