The all new dating game 1988

The same question could be asked to multiple bachelors.

The questions were written in advance by the producers.

One standard trademark was that at the end of each episode, the host and winning contestants would blow a kiss to the viewers.

The Dating Game was hosted by Jim Lange from its debut on ABC until the late 1970s syndicated series went off the air.

Typically, a bachelorette would question three bachelors, who were hidden from her view; at the end of the questioning period, she would choose one to go out with on a date paid for by the show.

Occasionally, the roles would be reversed with a man questioning three ladies; other times, a celebrity would question three players for a date for themselves, a co-worker or a relative of theirs.

After making her choice, the bachelorette met the two unchosen bachelors before meeting the chosen one.

But they all have the same influence: Chuck Barris, the creator of the one that started it all!

"THE DATING GAME" first premiered on December 20-24, 1965 on abc-TV and remained a fixture on the network in both daytime and nighttime incarnations through the rest of the 1960s and well into the 1970s.

After meeting the 2 boys she didn't select, she's meet her date at which point Jim would tell them where they were going for their dream date.

On less frequent occasions, the roles were reversed.
