Family Feud Host Richard Dawson Dies
The iconic, wisecracking, game show host Richard Dawson has died. Dawson was 79. The British actor-turned-game show host, died from complications due to esophegeal cancer in California.
Dawson’s acting career began in the 60’s, when he landed the role as a smart aleck POW Corporal Peter Newkirk in “Hogan’s Heroes” from 1965 – 1971.
But he’ll go down in history for kissing an estimated 20,000 women on “The Family Feud” game show. Dawson once told reporters he kissed the women for luck and love, and that was all. Still, it was very entertertaining to watch him buss all those women, whether on the mouth or the cheek.
