BURBANK, Calif. (WIVB) — A 9-day Jeopardy! champion is causing quite a stir among viewers for everything ranging from his snarky finishing answers to his clean-cut, suited appearance.

Some Jeopardy! watchers love Buzzy Cohen, while others can’t stand him.

The reigning champion has so-far amassed $164,603 in winnings as of Friday morning.

A music executive from Los Angeles, Cohen has displayed a certain confidence in his abilities on the popular game show, leaving wager-less final answers like “See you tomorrow Trebek?!” and “You aren’t rid of me yet Trebek?” for the show’s host Alex Trebek.

The brainy longtime contestant’s winning streak and associated actions have been viewed as arrogant by some, inciting a storm of comments on Twitter.

Although a number of viewers cannot stand Cohen, many others still stand behind him, singing his praises as well as making outlandish statements.

Love him or hate him, Buzzy Cohen is a name Jeopardy! viewers know well nowadays.

See him play others on the show again Friday night at 7:30 on CBS.
