There have definitely been more since the last time someone posted here, but I can't name anymore off the top of my head.
Ahem.

In the pool. I wonder what the longest time between Wheel and Jeopardy appearances is. I'm at 18 years and counting, assuming I ever get the call.

I spotted two former Jeopardy! champs on Wheel in the last week: Emily Herndon won $13,097 in cash and prizes last Wednesday (oddly enough, just $3 less than her combined winnings from J! and WWTBAM) and Jason Idalski (who posted here under the name "tailskid") was yesterday's big winner with a $68,416 total.

Thanks for the post and I gave each of them a line on their J! bios.

So based on the multiple counterexamples in this thread alone, can we assume that #50 on this Mashable article is hogwash?

There is a Business Insider article in my Google news feed that claims that you can't be on both J! and WOF because they are sister shows...You can't believe everything you read.

Also, #49 as written is hogwash as well even though those well versed in Jeopardy mechanics understand what they were attempting to say.

#48 is also false, they really sputtered to the finish. The show airs 46 weeks of games but the production cycle is generally 23 or so weeks of filming.

and part of #41: After a one-on-one interview, potential contestants partake in a written quiz of 50 questions and a live round of Jeopardy! using actual buzzers.

Matt Napolitano: Wheel — January 21, 2016; Jeopardy! — June 12, 2020.

Line added, thanks. He'll have to wait until 2024 for his next game show appearance? The pattern says he would finish third.

6. Trebek and announcer Jimmy Gilbert appeared as themselves in a Jeopardy!-themed subplot of the 1992 comedy White Men Can't Jump.

Also, the gendered phrasing in #44 annoys me.

"Also, how the bleep did I forget Russia even exists?!"- TPH
