Who TF Does Buzzy The Jeopardy Contestant Think He Is?

Few things have ever been as divisive as eight-day Jeopardy champ Buzzy Cohen. Like cilantro, or the Berlin Wall.

Cohen is “an indie recording executive,” whatever that means. He wears trendy glasses, has a nice smile, and styles his hair into what can only be called a coif. He is also no stranger to brushing the dirt off his shoulder, and has developed a fun little rapport with mustache-lacking host Alex Trebek by channeling SNL sketches and writing down saucy messages instead of actual answers.

Some find Cohen’s millennial élan, cheeky mannerisms, and self-assured bravado charming.

Others think he is one seriously obnoxious MF.

Yes, there’s actually a Twitter page dedicating to (metaphorically) screwing Buzzy Cohen. In his defense, he didn’t choose to be named “Buzzy,” probably.

As for what people say about him, both positive and negative, Cohen says he’s just trying to have some fun. “The thing that they really drive home is that it’s a game show, and you should have fun,” he told Vanity Fair in a recent interview. “And the people that do the best on the show are the people that are having fun. So I really was having a ton of fun.”


You’d be having fun too if you’d already won over $164,000. Anyway, love him or hate him, you’re stuck with this noodlehead for a while ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
