Former Child Actor from “Willy Wonka” Showed Up on “Jeopardy!”
Paris Themmen was on "Jeopardy!" on Tuesday. You probably won't recognize his name or his face after you see what he looks like now. But when Paris was a kid, he played Mike Teevee in "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory".
During the part of the show when Alex Trebek talks to each of the contestants, Paris said he's an entrepreneur and backpacker who has traveled to 61 countries. He did not mention being in "Willy Wonka".
Naturally, the Internet figured it out. Paris came in second place with $6,800 in winnings.
