CBS To The Competition: 'We Have A Hulk'

Victoria Principal (Dallas) along with Catherine Bach (Dukes Of Hazzard) and Valerie Bertinelli (One Day At A Time) were on the same team as Patrick Duffy (Dallas), Lou Ferrigno (The Incredible Hulk), Leif Garrett (Three For The Road), and Gary Sandy (WKRP In Cincinnati) in 1979. Jamie Farr (M.A.S.H.) was captain of that CBS team who won that season in May of that year.

The events that took place that day included the swimming relay, the kayak race, the baseball dunk, the obstacle course, the running relay, the 3-on-3 Football, the Tug of War, and Simon Says. When it came to the Tug of War event, ABC did not really stand a chance against CBS with Lou Ferrigno (Incredible Hulk) on that rope. Really? Young Scott Baio, Billy Crystal, and Dick Van Patten were no comparison to the strength of Lou Ferrigno.
