Yes!  You read that title correctly!  The actor who played Mike Tevee in 1971’s Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory has grown up and apparently enjoys game shows!

Diehard fans of Willy Wonka noticed that a man named Paris Themmen was a contestant recently on Jeopardy.

People quickly realized that indeed this was the same Paris Themmen who portrayed Mike Teevee…the obnoxious, television-obsessed kid from the classic Gene Wilder film!

Unfortunately, just like the movie, Mike did NOT win the competition…he finished in second place (but at least he wasn’t shrunken down to the size of match-stick at the end).

Take a look at the clips below!
