Buzzy Cohen wins 9 games of’Jeopardy!’ at a row
Cohen becomes an online sense in 2016 when he is on Jeopardy! teasing Trebek in between clues. He draws even more attention when he makes the decision to wager nothing in Final Jeopardy after winning the past two rounds. “What’s see you Trebek?!” And”Who is you are not rid of me yet, Trebek?” Are the responses he chooses to give instead.
As stated by the official Jeopardy!site, during his first run on the game show Cohen wins nine consecutive matches and $164,603. He wins the hearts of fans who tune in each episode to answering a question to see responses, jokes, and suits.
He contributes to’Jeopardy!’ in 2017 and 2019
Thanks to a memorable but also divisive approach to being a Jeopardy! contestant, Cohen returns to the game show in 2017 and 2019. To begin with he steps behind a podium once again, this time to take part in the 2017 Tournament of Champions. He faces off against fellow Jeopardy! contestants such as Alan Lin, Austin Rogers, and many others.
Cohen returns to the game show yet again in 2019 to take part in Jeopardy! All-Star Games as a staff captain. He goes head to head with fellow winners such as Ken Jennings, Julia Collins, and others. He ends up dropping out to Brad Rutter’s group, according to the official Jeopardy! web site.
Buzzy Cohen asks producers to consider him to get’Jeopardy!’ server
Following his stint on Jeopardy! in 2017, Cohen spoke with Vulture on the phone about his time on the series and whether or not he’d return. At the time he didn’t have any future look scheduled — as mentioned previously, he would go to return in 2019 — but he did state he expects to one day return to Jeopardy! since the sponsor.
“I told the producers when I had been back for the championship [2017 Tournament of Champions],’Nobody has asked me, and I am certain there is a very long line, but I wish to place my name on that list when Alex Trebek would like to retire,””’ he explained. “I’d really like to do that.”
The subject of who will triumph Trebek as the host of Jeopardy! is a much-buzzed-about subject among fans. In 2019, he shared that he’d been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. The surface of the program for decades, Trebek’s made it clear that he does not understand who’ll take over for him and that he does not have any say in the selection process so viewers should not bother asking.
For now, Trebek continues to sponsor Jeopardy! as fans wonder who will follow in his footsteps. Even though no one knows for certain who’ll get tapped to your gig, one thing is for certain; Cohen already has suits for your occupation.
