Warning: This entry comes with a video clip that, in context, is the creepiest goddamned thing you’ve ever seen.
Rodney Alcala is a serial killer who is on death row in San Quentin for murdering five women in the 1970s, but who has subsequently admitted to 30 more murders. He is also under indictment in New York for even moremurders, and is believed to be responsible for an astonishing 130 killings total across the U.S. And he looks like this.
But none of that is the reason he’s on this list. No, Rodney Alcala will be forever remembered for one thing: In the middle of his murderous California rampage, Rodney Alcala was a contestant on The Dating Game. And he won.
