“Jeopardy!” fans believe former Tournament of Champions winner Buzzy Cohen could be a potential new host of the game show.
The speculation comes after a few cryptic tweets were shared by Cohen.
Fan account BuzzerBlog tweeted: “100% prepared to be wrong but still not totally believing that the Mayim-hosts-primetime-Jeopardy thing is still here. If that was still a thing I feel like the many press releases talking about Celebrity Jeopardy would have mentioned her by now.”
Cohen responded with a GIF of Yoda saying, “No, there is another.”

“Shout out to the camera guys on [as yet unannounced project] for convincing me to get a picopresso from @wacaco_ltd – cannot wait to get this thing going!!!” he wrote.
“BUZZY IS THIS AN ANNOUNCEMENT,” one user wrote in response to Cohen’s cryptic Yoda tweet.
“Don’t tease us you menace!!!!” another added.

“A lot to unpack here,” one user responded to Cohen’s additional cryptic tweet.
