Stephen Fox, a resident from Tallahassee, FL, was famous for a number of reasons: for appearing as the first contestant to play WWTBAM after John Carpenter won the top prize, having to return on the next show after he won the Fastest Finger First round, and being the first contestant to have talk-show host, Rosie O'Donnell, as a Phone-a-Friend. His appearances were on November 19-20, 1999. Here is how Stephen did.
