While a journalist with The New York Times, in May 1961, Teague (as Robert Teague) appeared as an impostor on the night-time version of TO TELL THE TRUTH, round 1. Airing May 22, 1961, Teague was able to fool the panel by getting a majority of the votes while pretending to be Sergeant George Harris, an Air Force Judo instructor. Round 2 featured fellow journalist associated with the Times, Marianne Means, as the featured contestant along with two impostors.
