Thank you, Scott! That is awesome! I really hope they don't retire Magic #; and if they update, I hope they keep the floating effect intact. I've always loved the game based on the set alone.

Not sure if this falls in the category of a "simple" question...but...

Did Kyle Aletter end her relationship with Price on a sour note? I feel as if I read somewhere a long time ago that she was mad she didn't get chosen to be a permanent model and had been always relegated to being a sub only. As much as I liked Gina and Chantel, Kyle would have been a fine choice. She was a great model.

Kyle was definitely a great model.  While it was great that they added a 4th spot which was clinched by Kathleen, I sorta wished that they had done that in the 1980s.

I can't recall that as being confirmed.  Maybe speculation.

I actually brought this up not to long ago.  Can't remember if I did so on Discord or elsewhere on the boards; I can't blame her for being upset, but I don't think that would've led to a bad breakup.  It's more probable than not that the show is going to go younger over a 35-year old, and even though she wasn't there for long, Chantel, IMO, was the best available & correct hire.  Nikki would follow pretty much immediately to fill the vacancy.  Eventually they trended toward "younger" and from there, it just wasn't happening.  Sure there were issues with Bob and the models, and I don't think Aletter was part of that.  However, as mentioned when I brought this up, she did work with all the past models that did exit on not so good terms.  I guess it was best not to have her on around the beginning of the millennium as part of an audition to fill the void left from Janice & Kathleen.  Not that it's right, but Bob & Roger and whomever else weren't motivated to bringing in someone that was 40 at the time.

At the time, I was thinking they likely weren't going to part with Day One Janice and Kathleen.  It was just a tough break for Kyle that they went back to 3 models.  This after the classic trio stuck together from the late 70s all the way to the early 90s for the most part.

I'm still saddened that she didn't get the job.  Who knows where that would've led to.  I think she definitely would not be on the show today had it worked out, but it would've been awesome to see her as a true permanent Barker Beauty

Kathleen confirms this as true in her book. Apparently on her final run of shows in 1996, Kyle told the staff "if you're not going to make me permanent now, don't call me again when my current deal runs out." (or something to that effect)

Thank you!! I knew I had read it somewhere; it was indeed Kathleen's book. Which, by the way, is an excellent read if you haven't read it yet.
