Category: Television. Answer: Name two "Jeopardy" contestants who try Alex Trebek's patience. Response: Who are Buzzy and Austin?
"Buzzy" Cohen, the Californian who resembles silent movie comedian Harold Lloyd, and quirky New York bartender Austin Rogers (pictured) will square off in the two-day competition for $100,000. Alan Lin, a nerdy California software engineer, will also compete.
Usually unflappable host Trebek might lose some of this cool in coping with the antics of Cohen and Rogers. Both of them make insolent comments and react with histrionic physical gestures during the action, such as it is.
Lately, my "Jeopardy" participation has consisted of reading the Final Jeopardy clue in an ad that appears daily in The New York Times Arts section. The next day, the answer is given. Nerdy, huh?
But I will tune in for the Buzzy, Austin, Alan and Alex show.
