#22 Vikki Dougan

It can be argued that Vikki Dougan invented the butt crack. Known as “The Back,” Vikki’s main claim to fame was appearing in dresses with a low plunging back. “Buttage,” if you will. This seemed to keep her constantly in the press, though all the publicity never really panned out to many acting credits (IMDb has her down for only ten).
