  • Notes

    • The panel had a decent evening. They were stumped by the female blackjack dealer, but guest panelist Mel Ferrer correctly guessed that the second contestant was a kangaroo keeper at the Australian pavilion at Expo 67 in Montreal. Arlene correctly guessed that the mystery guests were the Supremes, who were on the show to promote their appearances at the Copacabana. This appearance was shortly before Florence Ballard was forced out of the group due to her heavy drinking and erratic behavior. Many felt that her problems were due to Diana Ross' domination of the group, even though many considered Ballard the more talented singer. Also of note, during the 1983 television special, "Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever," a proposed reunion of the surviving Supremes (Ross, Mary Wilson and Ballard's replacement Cindy Birdsong) was edited out of the show due to the bickering amongst the ladies. This was later mentioned in Wilson's 1988 autobiography, "Dreamgirl, My Life As a Supreme." - Sargebri (2004)
