Larry Toffler from Finders Keepers was a contestant on the 1970s-themed episode. And not for charity, either.
A contested on the first episode was music historian and producer Andy Zax, who later appeared on another game show.
The Other Marty: Burton Richardson announced the first episode, but was dubbed over with Mark Thompson. Notably, Mark "re-created" a Throw It In moment from Burton, who accidentally called a contestant "Michelle" instead of "Michael".
Throw It In: Burton Richardson announced the first episode until it was decided to replace him with Mark Thompson. When announcing the first episode, Burton accidentally called a contestant "Michelle Smith" instead of Michael. Mark Thompson "re-created" this blooper when he was chosen as the series' announcer (all his work was done in post).
