Is this for real?

Postby Zoonie » Thu Mar 22, 2012 6:14 pm

Just watched todays Eggheads and was interested in the question Pat Gibson had regarding Stendahl (Marie Henri Beyle) so immediately looked him up on Wikipedia. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw his picture. It's Pat with slightly more hair and a beard. Is this a genuine photo or is someone having a laugh?

No, it's for real, indeed, we had them as a quiz-lookalikes on the former website.

And if you look up Igor Stravinski, well, you'll see another Egghead...

Yes, and if you must have a look-alike, well, Stendhal's not a bad one to have. Doubtless had he ever seen Pat in action he'd probably have collapsed in admiring disbelief. ;)
