Buzzy Cohen will be guest-hosting the 29th Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions, airing May 17-28, 2021, the show announced today.
Cohen won the 27th Tournament, held in 2017.
“Buzzy has been where each of these champions is, so we think it’ll be comforting for the contestants to see a familiar face behind the lectern,” Jeopardy! Executive Producer Mike Richards said. “We will miss seeing him compete, but we look forward to seeing how he uses his quick wit and personality as guest host.”
Cohen has officially retired as a player and will no longer be eligible to return as a contestant due to serving as a guest host, a scenario that this site did envision in the past.
The 15 players competing in the tournament are:
Sarah Jett Rayburn
If you remember when the last field was announced, it was Ryan Bilger who was considered displaced by the producers to make room for Emma Boettcher. He will be making his Tournament appearance this time around.
