• Mary Catanzaro
    SHOW #22 & #43
    Taped: 3/11/1983 & 7/27/1983
Mary had the enviable opportunity to appear on two STARCADE! shows. She won show #22. As a STARCADE! champion she was invited back to appear on a STARCADE! Invitational show, competing against 3 other STARCADE! winners.

Mary described herself as a domestic engineer and part-time x-ray technician, specializing in Podiatric Medicine. Or as she said, "I take a lot of pictures of feet!" She considered her game playing skills at low average but thought being on STARCADE! would be "a good time and a challenge. ... I'm married to San Francisco Policeman."

In 2002 Mary checked in saying, "It was a great experience and loads of fun. Thanks for the opportunity."

It was 'loads of fun' for us as well. Thank you for being such a great contestant!
