I thought so.


I'm pretty sure it was the first one- lion lady. I grew up here in the bay area in the eighties and she looks super familiar. Can't remember her name. Elaine Corral? I can't find any pics of her.

Elaine Corral still works for KCBS (radio) and was fairly "hot" in the 80's that is not her. Anyhow I think it was Channel 36 (6 on your cable dial) who had the contest. 7 (ABC) 5 (CBS) are networkt O&O stations I don't think they would have done it.

ABQGOD: MattyFridays: The fact that someone's eyes are closed is a sign of a bad photographer, not a bad subject.

These were taken in 1983. They didn't have any way to review the images, film and developing was still expensive, and these are otherwise professional looking hi-quality shots - that was very expensive too and I'm sure the TV station couldn't afford more than one shot per person - unfortunately, some people blinked.

Fortunately for us, someone thought it was funny looking enough to save the rejects so we could all have a laugh 30 years later.


Also, I'm guessing the photographer also had a bit of an instinct for when the candidate wasn't actually going to be considered, but they had to keep up the charade for the publicity stunt so as not to disappoint people who were there.

/has done that for other contests
//*click* yep, we got it just fine on the first shot, thanks
