trivia: Many players guessed Louise for Nicole Eggert (0582). This goo inspired a rule change, that guesses for a fictional character would count if the goo was an actor and the source photo was in-character. The source image of this goo was a promotional photo of Louise as Ginger Grant, and Scott decided to count several guesses that came in for Grant because there was nothing to distinguish her from Louise.

Do-Over Week III This goo was part of Do-Over Week III. Each goo was based on popular incorrect guesses made for earlier goos.
