No. Not that I know of.

Chris Lopes became something of a science boffin.

There was an article about him in my local paper in 1994. He won some science award for his design for a solar panel.

I did cut out the article, but I threw it out. If only I kept this, since I'm sure that forum members would have enjoyed reading it.

As for what Chris Lopes is doing now, I have no idea. He doesn't appear to be on any of the groups for ex students of my high school that are on social networking sites.

Probably because he knows he'd get hassled by Late Show fans!

Bernard King.

There was an OZ Day Quiz in News Limited newspapers on the weekend.

Question 4.

Bernard King was a judge on Pot of Gold, the precursor to Pot Luck.

He told a young Keith Urban, a contestant on the show, to;

"Kindly learn to sing in tune."

Keith Urban related this story to Conan O'Brian on US television.

So we have Bernard King to thank for Keith Urban. Thanks a lot, Bernard. :roll:

Remember Michael Warren, who performed "Don't Cry Daddy" on Pot Luck?

When Bernard asked him if he had any ambitions, he said he was going to become a legend.

That didn't happen, but he's still around, performing under the stage name of Lucky Jackson.

He also entered Triple J Unearthed.

Nice find!

Now I wonder where Krista Krull is at?

What of The Spangles, and that rather sensitive contestant who, after Bernard's judging, was teary?

Tony commented,

"Brace yourselves. Bernard's comments aren't for the faint hearted."

I go to a pub for a weekly trivia night.

Last night, Fox Footy's The Back Page was on in the background.

I spotted the Todd Rixon clip from Pot Luck being used in a segment.
