A lovely friend who shall remain nameless owing to copyright issues has put my Merv Griffin's Crosswords episode on YouTube (sans the first round, which I wasn't in): Part 1 and Part 2.
What struck me at the beginning of the first round was this: "Hey, Ilene and Jeff were way thinner than that!" Somehow, all the contestants (self included) look heavier than in real life, whereas Ty Treadway looks the same on TV as in person. How can that be? I swear he didn't look anorexic in person. (Just foxy.)
