Today's challenger said he'd been on before, but there is no record of a John Owens on the wiki; however, a Jon Owens appeared in Series 22 (roughly 25 years ago) and won one game, which he said he had. Going to move Jon's page to the spelling "John" and add redirects, but please let me know immediately if anyone sees this and is aware this isn't him.

I've uploaded two photos of him, one in 1991 and one today, the facial apperance looks nearly identical so I'm going to say yes, it's the same person. Thanks a bunch to that uploader on YouTube who posts vintage Countdown Episodes (Mostly from 1991 though...)

(P.S. Just got off a plane when Countdown was airing, am very tired now due to travelling all day long...)

Got 404 too, surprised she missed it. Though she is only human I guess.

Same. It's still significantly more frequent that she gets one I've missed than vice versa though.
