** Series 8: Averted. Winners Little Mix have enjoyed reasonable and consistent success, becoming the first winner who had a later album and single more successful than their first original ones, while runner-up Marcus Collins seemingly dropped off the face of the earth, settling for Theatre.

** Series 8: Averted. Winners Little Mix have enjoyed reasonable and consistent success, which grew over a long period, becoming the first winner who had a later album and single more successful than their first original ones, while runner-up Marcus Collins seemingly dropped off the face of the earth, settling for Theatre.

**Series 13: Matt Terry's first song was a collaboration with the mighty Enrique Iglesias. It seems to have outperformed 5AM's debut song, which interpolates DMX, but Saara hasn't yet released her first major label release in U.K. She and Matt did a tour gig to 20,000 in Saara's native Finland.

** Series 9: Averted for now, as winner James Arthur and runner-up Jahmene Douglas have been about as successful as each other. Jahmene had a number 1 album, whilst James has been reasonably successful across Europe and Australia. However, James was involved in several controversies regarding twitter spats, rap battles and text messages- to the point a fan who bought his successful album demanded a refund from iTunes, and a petition was set up to ban him from the show before apologising for his actions in 2016, re-signed to Syco and made a CareerResurrection with the single "Say You Won't Let Go", which became a number one hit in the UK, Sweden, Australia, Ireland and Scotland. The contestant who's probably the most well-known overall from this season is fifth-placed Rylan Clark, although that's more as a general media personality rather than as a singer.

** Series 11: Winner Ben Haenow and runner-up Fleur East both released their post X-Factor debut singles within a couple of weeks of each other, with Fleur's single "Sax" charting higher than Ben's "Second-Hand Heart". While it's too early to see how their careers will pan out, Fleur probably has a better shot as Ben confirmed that poor sales of his second single resulted in him getting dropped from Syco, however, her album underperformed, and she's yet to follow up the massively successful Sax.

** [[Music/SpiceGirls "Scary Spice" Mel B]] plays this trope in the Australian version. Her guest judge stint in Series 9 of the British version (which included [[KickTheDog telling an octogenarian he bored her to sleep]]) prompted "What the Hell?" reactions from Gary, Louis, Tulisa and the audience. And in Series 14, she may be surpassing Simon in toughness and bluntness towards the contestants.

** The food metaphors continued in the third week of live shows of Series 13, when he said Ryan Lawrie's performance of "Rolling in the Deep" was like "a pancake if it sang", in that "it was flat".

* OddNameOut: One of the 2012 series's final three Groups, Union J (formerly known as Triple J), got its name due to all its members having names that begin with the letter J -- Jaymi, JJ, and Josh. The theme was somewhat broken, spelling-wise, with the pre-Judges' Houses addition of previously eliminated solo act George Shelley (though phonetically his name still matches the others'). After George's departure from the group, a more straight example came with the addition of Casey Johnson, a former member of the 2014 series' Stereo Kicks.



* PeacockGirl: Invoked in series 11 with Fleur East's performance of Alicia Key's 'If I Ain't Got You', which saw Fleur wearing a blue dress backed by a display of peacock feathers on the screen behind her.
