How many celebrities could you identify just by looking at their hair?

In an epic showdown on this week’s episode of The Floor (FOX, Tuesdays at 9pmET, next day on Hulu), Angie (53) from Texas took on Joey (23) in the category of Famous Hair. The dueling contestants were presented with photos of celebrities with their faces obscured, the photo that took the longest to identify was — shockingly (even host Rob Lowe was aghast) — that of Farrah Fawcett.

“Oh my,” Lowe enthused after the Famous Hair round. “What the heck did we just see?” As Angie, who took the stage for the first time, defeated Joey (who already won $20,000), and took over her floor spaces. Angie, who called herself the stealth bomber, had to be one of the slowest bombers to date on the show (the pressure was real as it was painful how long it took her to identify Fawcett’s hair). Lowe brought up her “enormous” pause over, arguably, one of the most famous hairstyles ever. “That was so famous, I had that haircut once,” Lowe laughed.

Fawcett’s 1970s feathered blowout inspired a generation. The bombshell and her silken curls were plastered on bedroom walls of teenage boys and girls across the nation. Females worldwide raced to the beauty salon trying to get a similar cut, curling irons and cans of hair spray a must.

In the end, Joey’s young age may have been the deficit as she was unable to name several other stars from the past including Geraldo Rivera.

Angie’s win, however, was short lived as Gabriel (28, Minnesota) ended up beating her in her own category of Transportation, when she missed snowmobile and one of the oldest modes of transportation — the horse. Gabriel went on to beat another contestant and win the night and the $20,000 – ultimately, dominating the floor. While The Floor started with 81 players it is now down to 25.
