** If a contestant is unable to reach the Wheel (usually from being very short or physically handicapped), they are allowed to have a friend or family member spin for them. Obviously, unless it's a themed week with two-player teams, the "designated spinner" is not allowed to do anything else but spin.

** The 28th season began with host Alex Trebek staying at his podium for the whole game, as opposed to walking out to the podiums to do the contestant interviews. This is because he tore an Achilles tendon during the summer while chasing a would-be burglar out of a hotel room. Similar accommodations happened again for the games following December 21st, 2015, due to Alex undergoing knee replacement surgery.

* For a few episodes of ''Series/FamilyFeud'' in 1978, host Richard Dawson wore tinted glasses after scratching his eye. (He wore the same glasses while serving as a panelist on ''Series/MatchGame''.) Later on, he wore a brace due to injuring his ribs in a car accident, and on one episode, asked contestant coordinator Caryn Lucas to host a question while he went to adjust the brace.

* In 2008, actor Creator/JasonMomoa was slashed in the face with a broken beer bottle during a nasty bar fight. 140 stitches and one reconstructive surgery later, all that remains is a small scar in the middle of his left eyebrow. It could easily be filled in with makeup, but it's so distinctively badass that it has become the actor's signature feature, and it's present in all his roles.

Occasionally a show's writers will have to work around a very real physical circumstance involving one of the actors, i.e. a temporary medical complaint. Sometimes the character will be PutOnABus until the actor recovers, but if they're still able and willing to perform, then the showrunners will either attempt to hide the condition, or find a way to work it into the story. You may watch your favorite action series and this week the hero gets kidnapped and needs [[DayInTheLimelights his spunky sidekicks to save the day]]...to hide the fact that the actor broke his leg. Or the soap opera heroine finds out she's pregnant but doesn't know if the baby is her husband's or her secret lover's, because the actress herself is with child.

* In "Tight to Death", rapper Mack-10's duet with then-wife T-Boz from Music/{{TLC}}, her pregnancy is proudly emphasized in the OutlawCouple-themed music video.
* Music/WhitneyHouston proudly showed off her pregnancy in "I'm Every Woman", since the song and video are a celebration of womanhood. Her previous video, "I Will Always Love You", hid her stomach by only filming her from the chest up, but with "I'm Every Woman" she was much further along, so they couldn't hide it even if they wanted to.
* "Someday" by Music/BritneySpears is basically a music video to celebrate her pregnancy.
* In the Music/DixieChicks' video for "Landslide", Emily Robison was clearly pregnant and not hiding it during the video shoot.
* In Music/AtomicKitten's video "The Tide Is High (Get The Feeling)", Natasha Hamilton was eight months pregnant and no attempt was made to hide it. In fact, the dance moves the girls use were choreographed to accommodate the baby bump.
* Music/{{Beyonce}}:
** Zig-zagged when she attended the 2011 Creator/{{MTV}} Awards wearing a loose-fitting gown. During her performance, she was wearing a boxy pantsuit and cryptically told the audience to "Feel the love growing inside me". At the end of her number, she took off her jacket to officially announce her pregnancy and received a standing ovation.
** Her video for "Countdown" appeared at first to be hiding her pregnancy with an abundance of shots from her front. And then she turned to the side and started rubbing her belly proudly.
