Robin Leach, dead. Remember him?
I feel that “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” was a precursor to Reality TV.
I thought he died around the turn of the century.
He was on Who Wants to be a Millionaire? not too long ago (the dumbed down one for Americans).
That was a pretty big show for its time, but I don’t remember any real buzz about the man, which I find a bit surprising. (Vanna White has, what, four books?) He was the ideal MC; keep the show running, never overshadow it.
Thought the voice was a bit much, but compared to what we have NOW, he was Ben freaking Stein.
