About Buzzy Cohen
Buzzy Cohen is a Music Supervisor originally from New Jersey who now resides in Los Angeles. He came to public attention during his nine-game winning streak on Jeopardy! in 2016, and cemented himself as a fan favorite by winning the 2017 Tournament of Champions. His stint guest hosting the 2021 Tournament of Champions made him a favorite of fans and critics alike. Dubbed “Mr. Personality” by Alex Trebek, Buzzy is known for his singular style and irreverent sense of humor as much as his impressive brains. He joined Season 3 of ABC’s The Chase, where he is known as “The Stunner,” has hosted the forthcoming series “The Einstein Challenge” for History Channel, and is a co-host on the weekly “Inside Jeopardy!” podcast. Buzzy’s passion for learning and challenging himself has led him to some surprising endeavors including winning a national deadlift championship and learning how to tap dance. These experiences inspired his book “Get Ready: A Champion’s Guide to Preparing for Moments that Matter” which was released as an Audible Original in June 2020. When he’s not selecting music for ads, winning trivia competitions, lifting, playing Brazilian Style guitar, or tap dancing, Buzzy spends his time with his wife and two kids and enjoys cycling, surfing, and collecting classic cars.
