Jay Leno Reveals a Young Kathy Bates as a Giggling Bride on 'The Love Boat' (VIDEO)

Kathy Bates, 'The Love Boat'Jay Leno managed to reach way back into the television machine and jog a memory Kathy Bates may well have forgotten on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM on NBC). Apparently, the acclaimed actress once played a giggling bride on 'The Love Boat.'

Considering the gravitas with which she portrays most of her characters, it's a somewhat startling image. Of course, Leno showed it to us all, much to Bates' chagrin.

"It was one of the first things I ever did," Bates recalled. "I remember now."

She was a bit disappointed with her peek behind the curtain of television's magic. "We shot on a soundstage, so I was disappointed we weren't actually on a boat," she admitted. We can only imagine what she would have expected had she been guest-starring on the original 'Battlestar Galactica' instead.

Leno used the footage to segue into a discussion about guilty pleasure television, and got Bates to admit to being an ardent follower of 'The Bachelor.'

Perhaps the eminent Ms. Bates should be a future contestant on 'The Bachelorette.' We'd love to see her no-nonsense attitude applied to the ridiculous shenanigans they get up to on those shows.
