Contestant Pam Costa won big on Press Your Luck, Wednesday night. Not only did she win the show and take home almost $130,000 in prizes, but she also won over viewers on Twitter with her stunning similarity to Married With Children character Peggy “Peg” Bundy.
There were a few similarities between Pam and Peg, most notably the leopard top they both wore, which was a signature piece for the character. And while their hair color was different, the hair style was also very similar.
It is a testament to the success of Married With Children that so many viewers would comment on a character that hasn’t been on television in over 22 years. But apparently the dysfunctional family that graced TV screens for 11 seasons left a lasting impression. And it looks like Pam also left a lasting impression, of Peg.
While Pam shares Peg’s love for leopard prints and money, she’s maybe a little more upstanding than the wise cracking, cigarette smoking, stay-at-home mom. Pam is the leadership director at her local charter high school, gets along with her daughter, and has brunette hair - not red.
Pam walked away with a shopping spree at Guess, private jet trip to see Cher in Las Vegas, $93,783 in cash for a grand total of $127,123 in cash and prizes.
