        NBC contestant Rhonda Bates stood at 6'2", however, Bo Svenson of the CBS team was the tallest contestant, at 6'6"!

        CBS contestants Denise Nicholas and Jimmie Walker were co-stars in the 1975 film "Let's Do It Again," starring Sidney Poitier and Bill Cosby. Denise was Beth, wife of Bill Cosby, while Jimmie was boxer Bootny Farnsworth.

        Mackenzie Phillips and Suzanne Somers were co-stars in "American Graffiti" (1973.) Mac was Carol, and Suzanne was the blonde in the white t-bird. During the show, Mackenzie became ill, and could no longer participate. Bo Svenson also injured his shoulder as a result of the game of frisbee. However, he made it back in time for the tug-o-war, which he had a huge part in winning. With 2 of their teammates being out of the game for a while, this makes CBS's victory all the more earned and deserved.
