Default Bacon numbers

Time for another willy-waving thread, IMAO.

I have a Bacon number of 3. Bacon has appeared with Stephen Fry, who has appeared with Bamber Gascoigne on University Challenge, as have I.

There must be people here who have a Bacon number of at most three.

I too have a Bacon Number of 3. I appeared, uncredited, on stage in a game show with Bob Barker. The Oracle of Bacon gives a Bacon number for Bob of 2. Thus I have a number of 3.

Generally I try to avoid being in front of cameras.

I have a Bacon number of 2. One of the MythBusters cast, Kari Byron, has a Bacon number of 1 by appearing with Bacon in Comic Con Live 2012. I worked with her and other cast members filming a number of episodes on a pier in San Francisco where I was employed.

Also my Bacon number is the same as my Erdős number, but only if you allow other shows besides Hollywood movies.

I did not know of this site before looking into this, so thanks for the thread.

Checking all of the celebs that I have interacted with (I have met several at random in the wild, others while on location filming) or have other ties to (I have collaborated with some folks in the industry on some projects). So far I have not been able to get the number lower, but have gotten 3 several times.

In the middle of writing this, I looked up a made for television movie that I had seen years ago. I thought that I had seen my image in it. Without a recording and before so many things were on you tubes, it was only my best guess. Now I found it.
.
Yes, indeed, my image is used in it (during the first 3 minutes.) This lowers my Bacon number to 2, through 5 different actors in the film.

My Erdos-Bacon number is higher than both my Erdos number and my Bacon number.

And my Erdos-Bacon-Sabbath number is even higher! I beat you all here!

Now, well... I never appeared in some famous show, but if I count publicity stunts, I may have a Bacon number of 10-20 or so (I appeared in few advertising clips, for companies I used to work, they put my face in the clip because I look like Jude Law - no joke, I really look like his twin 5-years-older brother, hehe). If I count actors I kissed (cheek kissing only, unfortunately, hehe) I may have a Bacon number of 8 or 9, and counting famous people I talked to, or shaken hands with, I may have a Bacon number of 7. There is no way I could go lower than that.

Or... Does being here with you guys counts? If so, then I have the smaller Bacon number of any forum member, plus one... hehe...

While this does not change my Bacon number:
I do now have on screen credit in this movie (which has been shown in theaters and the DVD has been produced) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8593878/
I was a kickstarter funder and am on the list at the end of the movie. Jim Lovell has a Bacon number of 1 (he played the captain of the USS Iwo Jima in Apollo 13).

I'm really hungry now.

My Bill Clinton number is 1, because my father's father was friends with him. My Xyzzy number is 0, because I met him at a Chick-Fil-A. Other than that, I can't think of anything special.
