Hello everyone,

I am a chinese.The following conversation happened when two persons(Anderson

Cooper &Ellen )played  "Celebrity" .But I really do not know what is The

Buzzer and Trebek’s voice,and could you explain this phrase for me?Thanks.


All right, you like games because Er… Did you win in Jeopardy?

I am a Jeopardy champion. I don’t like to brag, but I have it on my business cards. Yeah.

And, ok, literally, it was the dumb-down celebrity version of    Jeopardy. Have you been on Jeopardy?


It’s all about the Buzzer and Trebek’s voice. I’ll explain to you later.

The Buzzer and Trebek’s voice?

Yeah. It’s all about this end of Trebek’s voice. Yeah, It’s like you don’t pay attention to the light, you pay attention to his voice. You wait to beep after he finishes. Then you try to predict the… anyway. I can talk about this for hours.

Well, I don’t think it’s that easy to just listen to the end of the sentence and buzz the buzzer. I would not know the answer. I’m sure.

But it was dumb. I mean it was a dumb-down version of the show.

I still wouldn’t know the answer.

Yeah, I don’t believe that.

That’s why I stick to games like Celebrity.

You know I’ve never played Celebrity.

You haven’t?

I have not.

Oh, it was so much fun..........

"The Buzzer" is the button each contestant presses in his / her hand when giving the question to the answer ( in the game Jeopardy it is the reverse, contestants give their "answers" in the form of a question ).

"Trebek's voice" is the voice of Alex Trebek, the game show's host.
