Yes, there have been over ten thousand contestants on the show since the Alex Trebek version started over 25 years ago on September 10 1984.

Jeopardy needs 400 new contestants per year. The original Jeopardy show hosted by Art Fleming came on the air from March 30 1964 until January 3 1975. A new syndicated Jeopardy Hosted by Alex Trebek has aired continuously since September 10 1984. That would mean under 15,000 contestants for USA Jeopardy with over 10,00 of them from the Alex Trebek Jeopardy episodes. This estimate does not even include the large number of international contestants from the International Jeopardy shows.
Jeopardy! does not cover contestants' expenses. All contestants have to pay their own way to Los Angeles, which includes lodging and meals. Everyone on the show wins some money, though. Third place gets $1000, second place gets $2000 and the winner keeps what he makes.
Contestants are given thirty seconds to answer a Final Jeopardy! question.
