Episode Summary


Game 1: Mrs. Janet May - "Lingerie Model" (salaried; she receives a lot of whistles from the audience; from Mission, KS)

Game 2: Charles Morris - "Sells Worms" (self-employed; he orders 1000 mudworms from Maine, sells them and reorders; from Brigantine, NJ)

Game 3: Joan Fontaine (10/22/1917 - 12/15/2013) (as Mystery Guest)

Game 4: Ed Cunniffe - "Salami Stuffer" (salaried; comments are made about his colorful clothes, even though he is wearing a suit; from Jackson Heights, NY)

MYSTERY IN 2005: In an unusual move, John stated that there was no time for the next scheduled guest and named him. It sounded like John said Mr. Bernaise Johnson or perhaps Mr. Bernays Johnson. Maybe it was even Bern "Ace" Johnson - the spelling is unknown. - Suzanne (2005) MYSTERY SOLVED IN 2010: I believe that the contestant who wasn't able to appear on this episode of the show was Mr. Bernays Johnson, an inventor. He was a neighbor of my mother's as I was growing up in Wayne, New Jersey. If you Google his name, you will find links to some of his inventions. - SusanDeYoungB (2010) . .
