** Austin Rogers quickly became one of these due of his wacky behavior on the show proper, which departed from the cordial atmosphere expected on ''Jeopardy!''. While some love his personality and big bets, others find him annoying and distracting or an AttentionWhore. It didn't help that he managed to rack up $400,000+ final total over the course of two weeks. The show actually posted on their app a page about how he was miming drink mixing at the start of almost every episode (he's a bartender), and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T86T9wMn77s he appeared on]] ''Series/TheTonightShow'' and became James Corden's "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cd5ItEC9MV8 new bae]]" on ''Series/TheLateLateShow''. His detractors have seen these as overexposure, even long after his run ended. However, his run wasn't over yet, so some would say that was just the beginning. He happened to be the last person to qualify for the 2017 Tournament of Champions, [[spoiler:in which he became a wild card semi-finalist and made it as a finalist, then placed third and won $50,000,]] and somehow managed to infect the others and even Trebek with his hilarity, including Austin "Buzzy" Cohen, [[NamesTheSame whose first name he shares.]] The fact that one of his responses was stricken along with Buzzy's for adding an "s" to the end of a phrase--done when the producers cut in to inform Alex about the penalization--also proves that the show is not playing favorites.

* NeverLiveItDown: In November 2017, during the Tournament of Champions finals, ''Jeopardy!'' decided to riff on the fact that model Manuela Arbelaez from ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' accidentally revealed the price of a car during Five Price Tags with a clue where this was the hint to the name of the iconic game show... almost a ''year'' after the event in question happened.
