Kathrine Gabriel - Miss Ohio 1957 Such was the undeniable beauty of Kathrine Gabriel that she appeared on the cover of Photoplay magazine in May 1958 without being a movie star. A beauty queen, Miss Gabriel represented Ohio at various pageants in 1957. Her obvious good looks earned her a contestant's spot on the December 12, 1957 episode of You Bet Your Life. She appeared in her "working clothes"--a swimsuit--and had host Groucho Marx speechless for a few seconds. (Noting that YBYL had been on the air for 11 years, Groucho eventually muttered, "Why couldn't this have happened 11 years ago when I was 30 years younger?") The lovely Kathrine M. Gabriel Dittrick died in May 2016 at the age of 79.

Jenna Talackova - Transgender Beauty Pageant Controversy Jenna Talackova became something of a curiosity when she became embroiled in a beauty pageant controversy. Talackova was originally denied the right to enter the 2012 Miss Universe Canada pageant on the grounds that she was born a male. Donald Trump, who owns the rights to the Miss Universe Pageant, overruled the initial decison. On May 19, the 23-year-old blonde from Vancouver was one of the final 12 contestants, but failed to make the final five at the pageant, held in Toronto. Another Vancouver contestant, Sahar Biniaz, 26, claimed the crown and advanced to the international Miss Universe competition, but she didn't get anywhere near the publicity that Talackova did. Talackova was one of four contestants named Miss Congeniality. Talackova's lawyer Gloria Allred said that Talackova shouldn't feel too disappointed about not winning. "She's still a winner as far as I'm concerned," Allred said during an intermission. "She won an 'herstoric' civil rights victory and that I think is frankly more important than anything, any victory she would win, even representing Miss Canada." Talackova was born Walter Talackova and under went a sex change operation four years ago. Talackova was the first transgender competitor to seek the Miss Universe Canada crown and, predictably, attracted extensive media coverage.

Gene Stephens 3-Hit Inning On June 18, 1953, 20-year-old Gene Stephens collected three hits in one inning for the Boston Red Sox during a 23-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers at Fenway Park. The Bosox exploded for 17 runs in the seventh inning - sending 23 batters to the plate during their 47-minute half of the frame. Stephens had a double and two singles off three different Detroit pitchers. The 17 runs scored by Boston in that inning were two more than the previous modern MLB record, set by the Brooklyn Dodgers in a May 21, 1952, contest against the Cincinnati Reds. The Red Sox had 14 hits in their memorable inning to set a new modern MLB mark in that category. Gene Stephens was mostly a reserve player in his 12 MLB seasons. His batting average was only .204 in 1953, making his three-hit inning on June 18 even more surprising. The Red Sox led 5-3 going into their half of the seventh inning. Detroit pitcher Steve Gromek allowed nine of the 17 runs while Dick Weik and Earl Harrist each allowed four. Boston had 27 total hits in the game. The day before, they had 20 hits when they walloped Detroit 17-1. “I was the youngest ballplayer in the major leagues at the time,” Stephens recalled years later, whose three-hit performance was witnessed by only 3,108 Fenway fans that afternoon. “I probably shouldn’t have even been in the major leagues at that time. Ted Williams had gone to the Korean War and, therefore, that gave me the opportunity to play. As soon as [Williams] came back, the Red Sox optioned me down to their AAA team in Louisville." The all-time record for most runs scored in an inning is 18, set by the Chicago White Stockings against the Detroit Wolverines on Sept. 6, 1883, in a National League affair. During that onslaught (also in the seventh inning), three different Chicago players had three hits in the frame: Tommy Burns (two doubles, one home run), Fred Pfeffer (two singles, one double), and Ned Williamson (two singles, one double). The only other hitter in modern MLB history (since 1900) with three hits in one inning was Johnny Damon, who was also a member of the Boston Red Sox. Damon achieved his feat when Boston whipped the Florida Marlins 25-8 on June 27, 2003. Damon collected three hits (a single, double, and triple) in the first inning as the Bosox scored a record 10 runs before any Boston batter was put out.

Whats My Line - Syndicated Years After a prime time run on CBS of more than 17 years (1950 to 1967), the popular panel show What's My Line? was resurrected by its creators as a syndicated program from 1968 to 1975. Beloved host John Daly was not interested in the hectic schedule of five shows per week (all done in one day), so Washington political reporter Wally Bruner was brought in as the new moderator. Classy Arlene Francis returned as a regular panelist. Bennett Cerf apppeared occasionally until his death in 1971. Soupy Sales became the regular male panelist. He proved to be an amusing and excellent game player who seemed to know every mystery guest no matter what field he/she happened to be in. The syndicated version was less refined than the CBS version. Games were deliberately shortened to allow the contestants to display their unusual occupations--something that almost never happened on the old version. Therefore if a contestant was a fire eater or a wine taster, there was invariably a demonstration of his/her talent. Bruner hosted WML for four years but admittedly was not fond of New York City nor the showbiz scene and was happy to bow out gracefully. Larry Blyden, best known as a Broadway actor, took over as moderator in 1972 for the show's last three seasons, and was much more comfortable hobnobbing with celebrities than Bruner was. Providing halfway decent mystery guests five shows per week proved to be a huge challenge. Executive producer Gil Fates charitably referred to some of the so-called celebrities as "owls" because often the studio audience and some of the panelists would quietly say "who?" when the mystery guest was not particularly famous. The final shows were taped just before Christmas in 1974 and aired throughout the spring of 1975. Towards the end, declining ratings and aging audience demographics made WML a tough sell to local TV stations. Blyden was slated to host Showoffs, another game show, when he was tragically killed in an auto accident while vacationing in Morocco in June 1975--which absolutely sealed the finish of WML. The syndicated WML simply faded away with none of the sentimental fanfare the CBS version had in its 1967 finale. In his book on the history of WML, Fates ruefully admits the last episode of the syndicated show was "a bomb." There have been no serious attempts to revive WML since 1975, although a retrospective program was made later that year--co-hosted by John Daly and Arlene Francis--to mark WML's 25 years on the air.

Hot Dog-Eating Champ Takeru Kobayashi At the prestigious annual Nathan's Hot Dog eating championship in 2001, a skinny, unheralded 23-year-old Japanese contestant named Takeru Kobayashi blew away the field by consuming 50 hot dogs (and buns!) in 12 minutes to double the previous world record. Organizers were so unprepared for Kobayashi's spectacular display of gluttony that they had to resort to hand-written signage to keep track of his astonishing total of devoured dogs. To prove it was no fluke, Kobayashi won the next five Fourth of July Coney Island classics too--with totals of 50, 50.5, 44.5, 53.5 and 53.75 hot dogs respectively. In 2007, despite downing a personal best 63 hot dogs, Kobayashi was upset by American upstart Joey Chestnut. Chestnut also get the better of Kobayashi in 2008 and 2009. In 2010, Kobayashi ran afoul of event organizers when he refused to sign an exclusive contract with Major League Eating, the organization that runs the Coney Island event. Kobayashi was actually arrested as an intruder at the 2010 event when he climbed onstage to congratulate Chestnut on another victory. Kobayashi, nicknamed "The Tsunami" has set several world records in other eating disciplines, such as bratwurst, hamburgers, lobster rolls, and rice balls.

Snick Remember when SNICK Premiered? Nickelodeon at night that isnt Nick At Nite? WHAT! THIS IS AMAZING! The thought process of a 6 year old who just found out that Nickelodeon would be on the air until 10 PM on Saturday nights. This was huge for us kids who werent old enough to go out on Saturdays, and it gave us an excuse to beg our parents to let us stay up late. I mean hey, if Nick is still on, theres no way it too late to go to sleep right? Exactly. What a great bargaining chip by Nickelodeon. I remember it seemed like an eternity before SNICK kicked off. That orange couch still comes to mind every time someone talks about what to do on a Saturday night. Short for Saturday Night Nickelodeon ran from August 15, 1992 until August 28, 2004. (not cool, no reason to cancel such a great block, my guess since they were moving everything to Hollywood, this might have been cause and the fact that they lost good writters for these programs..in the 90's it was done right just like some in the 80's when it came to children's entertainment on Nick, this was the place. Today some are good from the 2000-2010 era- Rocket Power, Wild Thronberry's, Sponge Bob, to name a few. The block debuted on Saturday, August 15, 1992, with a pair of Sunday favorites (the preteen-oriented sitcom Clarissa Explains It All and the Nicktoon The Ren and Stimpy Show) and the network premieres of Roundhouse (a musical comedy variety series) and Are You Afraid of the Dark? (a horror anthology series)Ads and bumpers for SNICK featured the programming block's "mascot," dubbed "The Big Orange Couch," in several locales, including in front of the Midnight Society's campfire, Ren and Stimpy's house, and in various locations. It was retired in June 1999, when the iconic couch, stuffed with $25,000 and 6000 cookies, was given away in a contest celebrating Nickelodeon's 20 years on television. In 2006, one of Nickelodeon's celebrities would take over Nickelodeon from Monday to Friday, sitting on the Big Orange Couch. 1992-1994: 8PM Clarissa Explains It All 8:30PM Roundhouse 9PM The Ren & Stimpy Show 9:30PM Are You Afraid of the Dark? 1993 to mid-Summer 1994: 8PM Clarissa Explains It All 8:30PM The Adventures of Pete & Pete 9PM The Ren & Stimpy Show 9:30PM Are You Afraid of the Dark? 10PM Roundhouse 1994-1996: 8PM The Secret World of Alex Mack 8:30PM All That 9PM The Ren & Stimpy Show 9:30PM Are You Afraid of the Dark?

Dunk A Roos Commercial 1995 Due to the Popularity among kids in the 90's Its going here instead of the 80's Section (1988). The product's mascot is a cartoon kangaroo. The original mascot was Sydney, who wore a hat, vest, and tie and spoke with an Australian accent, voiced by John Cameron Mitchell. At the height of their popularity in 1996, a contest known as "Dunk-a-Roos Kangaroo Kanga-Who Search" was held, resulting in the new mascot: Duncan, the dunkin' daredevil. Ask your self: How come there was always more cookies than frosting? That was so annoying! And who else used to make Dunkaroo sandwiches? These were the best.

Beautiful Airplane Saleswoman on WML Jackie Frankel, a stunningly attractive airplane saleswoman, is a contestant on What's My Line in 1966. Wow! That is one pretty lady! (Listen for Steve Allen's funny comment--then an equally funny comment from his wife, Jayne Meadows.)

The New Treasure Hunt - 1974 Clip The New Treasure Hunt was a 1974-1977 syndicated remake of a 1956-1959 game show. The orginal show had a quiz segment. The 1970s version did not. Hosted by Geoff Edwards, it offered a fantastic grand prize of $25,000 to a contest who was lucky enough to choose the right box out of 30--and have the nerve to stick with it. Total Television describes the program as "slow moving and cruelly suspenseful." In this short clip from a 1974 episode, a contestant thinks she has made a bad bargain until Geoff surprises her.
