But to everyone’s surprise, the Hollywood legend shows up to save the day after all (Season 4, episode 17).
Jeffrey Tambor The “Law & Order” star played Glenn O’Brien, a formerly married man who had an affair with Dorothy four years earlier and wants to rekindle the flame after splitting from his wife (Season 5, episode 22).

He is survived by his wife Nancy, five children, two stepchildren and four grandchildren.
"They wanted a boy and a girl," he said in a 1992 interview with the Bay Area Radio Digest.
"They wanted the boy to do sports and the girl to do the dances and stuff that was going on in the Twin Cities — very sexist — and play music once a week."

Their answers aren't revealed until the beginning of the next show. However, I've seen several people on her TV show go home lonely, defeated, and probably mad that everyone from high school will see how far they haven't come.
Keith and his wit-driven, masterful matching capabilities are only in Los Angeles until the end of March, rounding out the season with Kevin Pollak on the 23rd and a surprise guest for the finale on March 30. He has plans to be back just in time for summer romance.
Van Straaten plays it all cool, magically building on each unexpected answer and giving the audience reason after reason to laugh both with and at the contestants. Together, they evoke a nostalgia for quiz shows gone by.
To get lines like Van Straaten's on a reality dating show like , there are edits and retakes and, dare I say, scripts! After the three hopeful singles head backstage to fidget nervously, the panel chooses a winner and the match is made right on the ACME stage.
