EXCLUSIVE

Alex Trebek hates all things ‘Willy Wonka’ — that’s our takeaway anyway, after hearing from the ‘Jeopardy‘ contestant who was also in the movie … which Alex completely ignored.

Paris Themmen — who played little Mike Teavee in “Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory” — tells TMZ … he didn’t bring up that interesting tidbit while getting introduced on Tuesday night’s episode because Trebek had clearly decided NOT to mention it.

Themmen says Trebek had 3 “fun facts” about him, but obviously chose to run with a backpacking nugget instead. According to Themmen, Alex is a big travel guy, and that apparently took precedent with him over anything as stupid as classic movies.

Even crazier … Themmen says there’s history with Alex and ‘Wonka.’ He tells us his wife was a ‘Jeopardy’ champ back in the day, and also had the ‘Wonka’ fun fact about her hubby on her card. He says Alex ignored it then, too … until he couldn’t.
