On Monday's episode of 'Jeopardy' we saw a familiar face on the gameshow, and it wasn't Alex Trebek.

It was contestant Jeff Kirby, who managed to try his hand at collecting some cash for a second time after producers dropped the ball.

Producers didn't realize he had been on 'Jeopardy' before until watchful viewers brought it to their attention later this week -- even though he used the same name, same profession, and even the same hometown in both appearances.



How boring does your life have to be that you recognize a contestant on Jeopardy from 10 years ago AND then bother to call the show and tell them?

My grandparents have watched this show everyday since it's been on. I'm pretty sure it was them that called.

You can't disrespect the sanctity of Jeopardy.

you probably have to be some uppity crusty geometry teacher who's worked in the same high school for more than 30 years and thought about molesting one of the female students more than once.

I tried out for Jeopardy once in Charlotte.
Got to meet Alex. All the questions were 800 and 1000 questions. 50 of them.
Billy from John Boy and Billy was at the same table as me. We made past a few rounds but not the final.
The lady who won from our group was a retired librarian and won a couple of days on the show.
