Rielle Hunter is no television novice.

Before her much-buzzed about appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show this week, John Edwards’s mistress appeared on an episode of the word game Lingo. Hunter taped the appearance in 2002, and the show aired originally on Jan. 7, 2003.

Watch, in a new clip released by GSN, as Hunter and her partner have to guess a mystery word to solve the puzzle. In the clip, her team wins a round after correctly intuiting that the secret keyword is “wacko.”

GSN re-ran this classic Lingo episode on Friday.
