Finding The Bionic Woman
10. Actual non-bionic country singer Hoyt Axton appeared in an episode where Jaime pretended to be a country singer.
Axton was also on Growing Pains once, so he was used to working with robots.
11. Long before Austin Powers ever existed, Jaime Sommers battled Fembots.
They appeared, among other things, in an episode called "Fembots In Las Vegas."
12. Lindsay Wagner and Lee Majors co-hosted a 1977 Christmas special.
In the special, called "A Bionic Christmas," they performed a medley of "O Holy Night," "O Come All Ye Faithful," and "Jingle Bell Rock."
13. Jaime battled an African dictator and collaborated with Evel Knievel in two consecutive episodes.
They were called "African Connection" and "Motorcycle Boogie."
14. In one episode, shampoo was laced with truth serum.
You tell two friends, and they tell two friends, and they tell two friends...EVERYTHING.
15. Princess Aura, a fourteen-year-old from another planet, was portrayed by Helen Hunt.
Okay, A, she doesn't look like she's from another planet, and two, "Princess Aura"?
16. Blooper reels reveal that Lindsay Wagner has a total potty mouth.
At one point, she forgets her lines and mutters, "Fuck ass, shit fuck piss."
17. In the 1989 TV movie Bionic Showdown: The Six Million Dollar Man And The Bionic Woman, young Sandra Bullock appeared.
This was one year before her ill-fated turn in the TV version of Working Girl, and three years before her groundbreaking work in Love Potion No. 9.
18. Lindsay Wagner, a vegetarian, wrote a vegan cookbook called High Road To Health.
The book calls its Teriyaki Tofu "reminiscent of chicken."
19. Lindsay Wagner married a stuntman she met on the set of The Bionic Woman.
The stuntman was her second of four husbands.
20. Jaime once went undercover as a wrestler named Savage Sommers.
Naturally, one of the wrestling-adjacent weasels was played by Norman Fell.
21. Like most mid-1970s heroines, Jaime had a surgically altered lookalike.
Her name was Lisa. Lisa was not bionic; instead, she took performance-enhancing drugs.
For the answer to which "facts" are false, flip to the final page.
The false "facts" are #9, relating to Gavin MacLeod, and #12, the "Bionic Christmas" special. We really wish that second one were true, and that YouTube had it.
