With disparaging tweets like, "Has there ever been a more punchable @Jeopardy champion than Buzzy Cohen?" to more favorable ones like, "I have never loved a man the way I love Buzzy Cohen on #jeopardy," it appears the Internet has cultivated a deep love/hate relationship with the overnight star.
Has there ever been a more punchable @Jeopardy champion than Buzzy Cohen?
"It's pretty amazing," Buzzy told ET. "I definitely feel like I'm way out of my league. I had a lot of lucky breaks."
Buzz admitted that he wasn't sure he'd win at all. Now, nine days strong, he dished on part of his strategy.
"The thing people may not realize is you can't buzz before Alex [Trebek] is done with the clue," Buzzy clarified. "If you buzz in before, you get locked out ... You have to wait and time it right when Alex is done reading the clue. What you can't see at home is there are lights that kind of help you. What I did was I would read ahead and figure out if I knew it and studied his rhythm. I would watch the show with a ball point pen and practice buzzing in."
"I'm having fun with it, as you can tell," he said. "I find that people who hate me are as funny to read about as the people who love me. This is it. I'm only on Jeopardy! once. I'm only going to get this level of hate once. I'm taking it all in. It's really funny."
