    (Jack Barasch)
    March 20, 1918 – May 2, 1984

    The most famous host of "Concentration" was Alex Trebek. (We miss you, Alex!) But the first ever host of "Concentration" was Jack Barry.

    The most famous host of "The Joker's Wild" was Bill Cullen. (Or Gene Rayburn, take your pick.) But the first ever host of "The Joker's Wild" was Jack Barry.

    The most famous host of "Tic-Tac-Dough" was Wink Martindale. (Not his real first name, if you're wondering!) But the first ever host of "Tic-Tac-Dough" was Jack Barry.

    The most famous host of "Twenty One" was Maury Povich. (By default, really. Maury hosted the short-lived revival during the new game show craze of the early 2000s.) But the first ever host of "Twenty One"...

    Yep. Jack Barry, born Barasch. Not exactly well-remembered today, he was top honcho among hosts during TV's first game show golden age. The crown jewel was "Twenty One"... with Barry presiding over the scandal that put a swift end to that same golden age.

    Perhaps that's why he is not well-remembered...

    Verdict: Jew.
