Buzzy Cohen, current reigning Jeopardy! champ has a sort of... let's call it an "arrogant charm" that is really polarizing audiences and spicing up the classic trivia show. As of Thursday, Cohen is on day eight of his ongoing winning streak, boasting $147,803 in winnings so far. He also looks like (and acts like) an evil prep school villain, and you are likely to both be intrigued and outraged by him.
He has impressive knowledge that keeps him in the game, but his trivia-knowing skills are definitely eclipsed by his giant ego. He even dares to troll legendary host Alex Trebek, leaving you to wonder, can he even do that?
His presence on the show has divided the Internet into two camps: those who love Buzzy and those who can't stand the guy.
One person who really, really can't stand him even made a Twitter account about how much he hates the guy. Presumably, they also have a ton of spare time on their hands.
And some people have just as funny things to say about Buzzy as Buzzy has to say to Trebek.
Of course, Buzzy is good for more than just causing controversy and throwing shade. He is strategic with how he uses his money on the show, and employs his wealth of knowledge to crush the competition. Basically, he is good and he knows it.
Whether you are rooting for Buzzy to win or to fail, it looks like this Jeopardy! champ and his very circular glasses have definitely left their mark on the show.
Maybe his villainous ways will be immortalized in an SNL sketch where Sean Connery and Buzzy Cohen have an insult off? Now that would be good TV.
