Game 2: Colonel Shoshana Gershom - "Head of Israeli Women's Army" (salaried; she is the commander of the women's auxiliary; she is in America on behalf of Israel's 10th anniversary, promoting the State of Israel Bond issue in the United States - these bonds aided Israel in developing its economic infrastructure; born in Russia, currently from Israel)

Game 3: Steve Allen (12/26/1921 - 10/30/2000) (as Mystery Guest) See complete transcript below! He signed in as "Steve Kellogg Allen" but he crossed out "Kellogg" before he wrote "Allen."

Game 4: George Church - "Ballet Dancer" (self-employed; John saw him dance at a party hosted by NY restaurateur Toots Shor in Philadelphia; George originated the role of the gangster "Big Boss" in "Slaughter on Tenth Avenue" which was a ballet number in the 1936-1937 Rodgers & Hart Broadway play "On Your Toes"; he has the broad-shouldered look of a football player; from New York, NY)

MADE IT THIS TIME: The final contestant, George Church, was scheduled to have been a guest on EPISODE #410, but the show ran out of time and he did not appear; Gil Fates described him as a "rough-looking guy" in the handwritten show logs. - Suzanne (2008)
