Rett was 16 and a junior at Bishop O'Doud High
School when his STARCADE! show as taped. He
was a actor involved in A.C.T. Classes and plays - his favorite was
"I remember Mama." He enjoyed collecting Beatle
memorabilia and cross country running.
Garrett was Western
Regional Manager for a company specializing in tv commercial jingles.
Reason he wanted to be on STARCADE!: Because "I wanted to try my skill
in a competitive atmosphere and hopefully win a game. Also appearing
on TV would be an experience in itself."
His father wanted to be on the show because "On my most recent visit with
the kids, they wanted to be on the show. Will you go, Dad? Sure. That
sounds like fun...and here we are.
"As to what I'm doing now, After I finished college I went to Law School, and became a lawyer. I started practicing in Arizona about seven years ago (this was 2000) and I really enjoy my work. My area of expertise is corporate law. I work with a small firm in Tucson, Arizona where I also reside with my wife Diane."
RETT & GARRETT'S
to note that Louis Abronson, the 16-year who competed with his Dad
against the Bergmarks, also became an attorney. Click

STARCADE! memory: "I just happened upon your website by accident
and boy did it bring back memories. I attended a tryout with my
younger brother and his friend. I remember the studio didn't even
really look like a TV Studio from the outside.
"I remember very little about the two tryout sessions other than you had to show lots of
excitement. I really enjoyed my experience even though I really
didn't do very well."
NO ... We're not making a mistake spelling Rett's name ... he changed it.
When he was on the show, he was Rett. Today he's Rhett (his wife's name IS
NOT Scarlett!). It must be a show business thing.
More feedback from Rhett ... After receiving the
video of his show (we send every Contestant who checks in a copy of their
show ... free, of course!) Rhett wrote back:
"I really enjoyed watching the show and remembering the special time I spent
with my dad. I am planning on making a copy and sending it to him
for his birthday."
