Re: New old games in the J! Archive

In the Barbara Lowe thread, Roadgeek Adam posted (most of) an article by Clint Swett, who became champion after Barbara was retired. In googling him, I found another J! related article from the Brazosport Facts in Clute, Texas. It's at https://www.newspapers.com/newspage/9569442/ but I'll copy it o...

Re: "Barbara Lowe" 2nd Episode

I really tried to dig up the better thread, back on the old Jeopardy board, back when Kirby showed up. Unfortunately the archives bypass that thread by a month-ish.

Re: "Barbara Lowe" 2nd Episode

What's the source for the Social Security number thing? Eisenberg's book. Do you have an actual citation? It's not in the pages Mark scanned, linked elsewhere in this thread. (I'm at work or I'd check my own copies.) Maybe I misread that. Hold on. Apparently Boden. https://www.reddit.com/r/lostmedi...

Re: "Barbara Lowe" 2nd Episode

I just saw a picture in the recap thread that Roadgeek Adam linked to showing that "Barbara Lowe" appeared on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? as Barbara Vollick. And well, there's this on Twitter. Guess who she supported then . I found her on Facebook. Her profile picture is of her and a a younger m...

Re: "Barbara Lowe" 2nd Episode

This is somebody who flat out lied and cheated to appear on the show and eventually got caught. Then threw a hissy and threatened a lawsuit when they didn’t want to pay her what she basically stole from someone else. So, aside from archive purposes, why are people talking about her? By doing so, yo...

Re: "Barbara Lowe" 2nd Episode

I admit, with the anniversary 35 years later in March 2021, it would be very interesting to hear her side of this, but I have to imagine, even 35 years later, there's a bunch of NDAs and gag orders.

Re: "Barbara Lowe" 2nd Episode

Assumed name, false SSN. When they caught her and denied her money, she threatened to sue. In order to quell the suit, she'd keep her money, but can not appear in the TOC and the episodes would never be rerun again, which means Lionel Goldbart's 5th game has not been seen since March 6, 1986. From ...

Re: "Barbara Lowe" 2nd Episode

I guess I'm out of the loop...but is there something significant about Barbara Lowe, other than being a 5-day champion? I don't remember her...but it's been over 30 years and during 1985-86 season, I worked most evenings and that was in the days before VCRs were widely available so I must have miss...

Thankfully I have a newspapers.com account, which I've used to help RKS on his Fleming era TOC work. Here's the article closeup Thankfully, indeed! Those were fun to read. Then you'll like this.

Re: "Barbara Lowe" 2nd Episode

Goldbart.jpg So, from this article, by the same author, Lionel's first show was Friday, February 28, 1986. Game 2 is Monday, March 3, 1986, Game 3 is Tuesday, March 4. Game 4 is Wednesday, March 5. His loss and Barbara Lowe's first appearance is Thursday, March 6, 1986. Barbara Lowe's shows are: Ma...

Re: "Barbara Lowe" 2nd Episode

This article places Goldbart's run in 1985. https://www.miaminewtimes.com/news/a-date-with-destiny-6364198 With 4 games for him and 5 for Barbara, we'd need an uninterrupted 9 day gap somewhere in the first half of Season 2. That narrows it down. (An obituary indicates that Goldbart died on the exa...

What did the person who got it wrong say?
Was never shown. The clip cut his out for some reason. Unless you can read the screenshot I've added.

Also, the middle contestant's name is David Perry.

Re: "Barbara Lowe" 2nd Episode

OQ cross-checked this clue against the FJ! resource and it's not there. Do we have a date certain? I only have final, and only small bits of it. if people remember when she was on in 1985, this would be her 2nd show. It's from a tape of clips from the 80s in game shows. Also, I really cannot provid...

"Barbara Lowe" 2nd Episode

Well, I've discovered something interesting tonight courtesy of an anonymous friend of mine, there's at least a video of "Barbara Lowe" flying under the radar. These screenshots I've attached come from her second game's final. I figure you people will want to see the final to play for yourself, thos...

Re: Favorite Who Wants To Be A Millionaire host?

Regis and Meredith were great no question, but i do think Chris gets a bad rap. He did well with the version he was given. I actually think he would've done a lot better with the primetime format. Is he the most exuberant personality? No. But, he deserves another game show chance if he can.
