    It is too bad that Peter Tomarken is gone

    Killed in a plane crash with his young wife

    He was one of the most underrated game show hosts

    That should had been a bigger star

    Like Eubanks, Trebek, Barker, Sajak, etc

    Glad though GSN still remembers him

    As Press Your Luck is a hot show on there

    Despite only being originally on CBS for three years

    He was also involved with charity work

    And was on his way picking up a patient when his plane went down

    Will miss him a lot

    RIP Peter Mr Whammy!moreless

    Peter Tomarken, was known by few as the host of press your luck. And he did a damn good job at it. I don't think any one could have done it better then him. I wish press your luck was still on the air as new epidsodes. But even a good remake can't happen now, the old remake whammy stunk. Cause Toad Newton, was a fruit at game show hosting. Peter whould have made the show work. I will miss him.moreless
