SANTA MONICA, Calif. - A former TV game show host and his wife were killed Monday morning when their small plane crashed into Santa Monica Bay, authorities said. Rescue crews were searching for a third person also aboard the plane.

The bodies of Peter Tomarken, 63, host of the hit 1980s game show "Press Your Luck," and his wife, Kathleen Abigail Tomarken, 41, were identified by the Los Angeles County coroner's office.

I loved "Press Your Luck"! Used to watch it all the time, and then that guy cracked the "randomness" and took them for a ton of money. Then they changed it to the new version you see now.


Anyway, RIP. :,-( .

The best thing about Press Your Luck was the random prizes. It was always something like '$85 and a hammock' or '$50 and a catamaran.'
