Where's the strangest place?

Now somewhere in the black mountain hills of Dakota there lived a young boy named Bob Eubanks.

Well, he's not so young any more, though he looks to be in really good shape for a 78-year-old. As a faux tweet noted, Newlywed Game (and a bunch of other game shows) legend Bob Eubanks is bringing a live mash up of various formats to the actual Black Hills of South Dakota.

The Beatles reference is appropriate. In the linked TV interview, Eubanks recalls how he promoted the Fab Four's L.A. appearances. He even mortgaged his house to bring the moptops to the City of Angels. He also talks about his game show career, which has now spanned eleven shows. (His count, I didn't bother to verify it.)

Eubanks has three grown children and a 12-year-old son who wants to be a pro soccer player. Maybe the kid will decide on game show hosting instead, while there's still time. Bob also manages to flummox his female interviewer by asking her for the strangest place she made whoopee. Sadly, she doesn't answer the question.
