Dating game tv show episodes
An eligible bachelor or bachelorette picks a blind date by asking a series of questions to three singles hidden behind a partition.
The show was both a daytime and prime-time success, and yielded several incarnations, including a 1996 version that changed the format.
The future Federal Judge Alex Kozinski appeared on it and was selected as a "date". Some contestants appeared even after they were fairly well known, including a young Michael Jackson, Ron Howard, Maureen Mc Cormick, Barry Williams, Sally Field, Richard Dawson, and Paul Lynde. [email protected] Dad was on the show sometime around 1975 ish. I would love to get a copy of that show if it's available. My dad passed away in 1984 and I would love to be able to show my kids their grandfather. Occasionally, the contestant was a bachelor who would ask questions to three bachelorettes.Certain kinds of questions were "off-limits", such as name, age, occupation, and income.The 1986 revival was hosted by Elaine Joyce for its first season and Jeff Mac Gregor for its remaining two seasons.
When the show was revived with a different format in 1996, Brad Sherwood was named as its host.
One standard trademark was that at the end of each episode, the host and winning contestants would blow a kiss to the viewers.
