Between previous posts here and a recent thread on Reddit I've seen a handful of names of champs who did not play the FJ! round in their last games of regular play:

Ryan Alley
Michael Bilow
Carl Brady
Deborah Fitzgerald
Dylan Hamilton
Max Levaren
Philip Tiu

Those are all players good enough to have won at least two games.

Anyone with the specialized Archive-fu want to add other champs to fit the list? Even if it was a 1x winner only.
Betsy Knudson
Marilyn Maher
Rebecca Wald
Mike Malaier

Another multi-day champ who went out before FJ in their last game, that I didn't see mentioned here yet, is Martin Budak from Season 23. I remember it being the first time I've seen it happen.

Coryat: 44,600
51 R/1 W
DD: 3/3
FJ: :(
LT: narwhal (DD), humpback whale, amphibious, Gustav Klimt, Light and Truth (DD), Warren Harding, The Fall of the House of Usher (DD), wildfires, European Union

Lost the coin flip between Major and Blair.

Contra the assertion made in the Steve Austin clue, both the wrestler and the colonel were referred to as "bionic." Among the wrestler's many nicknames was "The Bionic Redneck," owing to his wrestling the last several years of his career in dual knee braces.

Sprinkles are for winners.
