Yes, it was Coppola.

But the phenomenon of a multi-week champion means that among all the contestants mown down by the champ would be some that in other circumstances, would become five-time (+) winners themselves.

You could end up with only ONE champion for an entire season of the show, making it impossible to have a Tournament of Champions.

I guess with all the tournaments they do, I hadn't noticed the periodic absence of a TofC.

So this may be another such year. The new All-Stars team-game concept may have been 'it' for a while.
