Gene Wilder Willy Wonka


A man named Paris Themmen was on “Jeopardy” on Tuesday, and get this…he’s a former child star who played Mike Teevee in the 1971 movie “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…but he did not mention being in “Willy Wonka”.  But naturally, the Internet figured it out.  Paris came in second place with $6,800 in winnings.
