  • It took 875 episodes for a rarity to happen.

    9.5
    Match Game fans know that female contestants are usually dominate this show, with once in a while male contestants playing from time to time.



    Then along comes George Frederick, a gentleman whose championship began on Match Game 76 & ended in Match Game 77 after 12 games and $16,500 in winnings.



    Match after match, George knocked off female contestants for eight consecutive games. Then on his 9th game, he makes history by facing another gentleman!



    I'm surprised the panel & Gene Rayburn didn't notice that rarity in the first place. Or make silly quips like, "This is Match Game 77, not Double Dare!"moreless
