$1.98 Beauty Show
September 2, 1978 - September 1, 1979


Host - Rip Taylor

Chuck Barris (of "Gong Show" fame) produced this mockery of the American beauty pageant with a format of six contestants to vie for the crown. Host Rip Taylor introduced a variety of contestant-types -- some sexy, some gross.

There was a talent competition, with plenty of off-key singers and off-beat acts and a swimsuit competition, which, curiously, always seemed to favor the fat contestants.

The winner received $1.98 and a tacky crown. Frequent celebrity panelists included Jaye P. Morgan, Jamie Farr, Louis Nye, Marty Allen, and The Unknown Comic (Murray Langston).
