Whom would you choose? Difficulty: chronological order from left to right. Discuss.

Mount Rushmore, that is. Whom would you choose? Difficulty: chronological order from left to right. Discuss.
We already have. More than once, even.

Bill Cullen.  The other three don't matter.
Still accurate.
This has been another installment of Matt Ottinger's Masters of the Obvious.
Stay tuned for all the obsessive-compulsive fun of Words Have Meanings.

Um...obviously it would be...Clifton Fadiman | Edd Byrnes | Patrick Wayne | Brad Sherwood


Seriously (since I wasn't around eight years ago (should've been)):
Bill Cullen | Allen Ludden | Bob Barker | Dick Clark

John Daly | Gene Rayburn | Tom Kennedy | Chuck Woolery would be on the scaled down replica at Universal Studios.

Me: Of all of the game shows you've hosted besides Jeopardy!, like High Rollers or Classic Concentration, which is your favorite?
Alex Trebek: I'd have to say To Tell The Truth, because it was the first time in my career that I got to sit down while I was hosting.

The choices include Vicki McCarty, Cynthia Washington, and Tricia Gist (who were game show hostesses for a week or two) and Sally Julian (who was fired because she was so bad), but Carol Merrill, Ruta Lee, Elaine Stewart, Susanna Williams, Lacey Pemberton, Roxanne, and all of the TPIR models are excluded?

Putting Fadiman in with the others seems bizarre- his work on "Information Please" played a major role in shaping what a host would be and do, particularly on panel programs.

Who's Roxanne? What game show did she do?
