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.

dark side of the moon: I don't know anything about photography. The photographer said he developed the pictures "without proofing them first." What does that mean? Just curious.


I'm pretty sure it means developing a "proof sheet" before developing full size images. Ever see an old movie where a photographer is looking through a magnifier at a sheet of images? That's a proof sheet, film stock, chemicals, development time, all cost money so, after developing the negatives, they would shoot them on a single sheet of film stock, develop that, then decide which images should be developed full-size. Saved time and money.

This guy is basically saying it had these developed full-size (probably 8x10) and skipped the proof sheet step.

Finger51: IAMTHEINTARWEBS: Am I the only one who wants to know who won the competition?
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.


This is Elaine Corral ... Not sure if it's her or not.

Yes but why would you?

To give her the best thirteen seconds of her life.

Thirteen seconds. So you really think she'll let you go twice?


I was hoping so..........

Was she submissive or just resigned?

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

Ryan Reynolds has certainly grown up well.

No way, that's a dead ringer for Michael Ian Black.

I think he looks less like Corbin Bernson and more like Shilinger on OZ if he grew up to be a decent man instead of a hatemonger.

dark side of the moon: I don't know anything about photography. The photographer said he developed the pictures "without proofing them first." What does that mean? Just curious.


proofing is when you would take all your exposed negatives and lay them on a sheet of photo paper, expose it and then develop it. Then you would look at the tiny pictures with a loupe (magnifying device) and decide which pics you were going to print. you wouldnt want to make prints of all the negatives as making a good print can be very time consuming.

thanks, everybody. well, most of you, anyway. I haven't laughed so much at a fark thread in a lonnnnng time.

dude with the coke bottle glasses. before my cataract surgery, I had glasses that could bend light around my head and you could see what's was coming up behind me. They made his look positively mild in comparison. Now I have mere mortal glasses.

Yeah, but the eyefolds and time period make me thing the guess of Dayton Callie above might be right on the money.

Considering he was a starving actor in '83~84, it would also be to form for him to appear at this sort of audition.

Shame I can't find any early pictures of him. Anybody have a screen capture of him as a breakdancer from "Preppies"?
