A writer and producer for television from Los Angeles, California...
Date of First Appearance:
$65,500 ($60,500 plus $5,000 in ToC) plus “Garlique.” And what is this Million Dollar Masters thing I keep hearing about? Nobody called, nobody wrote.
In my five games, I was never catchable going into Final Jeopardy! In my last game, I bet in Final Jeopardy! so that if I got the response wrong and Alex McNeil (sp.?) got it right, he'd tie me. A past champion I had talked to before going on said that's a cool thing to do if you have the opportunity, since the other player would get to advance and I would be retired anyway as a 5-time champ. Besides, it was just Merv Griffin's money. That's the time to be gracious. I got it wrong, Alex got it right, we tied, and Alex got to continue. Made me seem like a super stand-up guy, even if it wasn't originally my idea.
