Host of the dating game tv show

The Dating Game TV show was a 30 minute game show on ABC where a contestant would ask questions that were typically funny or sensual in nature of three other contestants of the opposite sex. Occasionally there would be an episode of the Dating Game where they told about the dates that were successful and had developed into relationships.

The Dating Game TV show began as a daytime game show.

Then in October of 1966, ABC moved the series to their Thursday night prime-time schedule at PM to replace "The Tammy Grimes Show" that only survived a few episodes.

Then the chooser would decide how important those two traits were to them and that would determine who became the date.

Unfortunately, looks almost always won and that probably didn't make viewers (who mostly didn't look like fashion models) very happy so the show died an early death.

It was probably more acceptable on that show because the contestants were married.

Questions like, "What does your husband do that's most likely to result in you and he making whoopee".

" and the answer might be, "I won't say what the dessert would be but it will involve whipped cream" or something like that.

For its final three seasons in prime-time, the Dating Game was followed by "The Newlywed Game" which was also produced by Chuck Barris and the sexual inuendos were even more flagrant.

TV show description: On this classic game show, the grand prize is only a paid dinner date but there’s also the potential of winning a partner for a lifetime.

Created by Chuck Barris, each episode of the series features a bachelorette/bachelor who questions three bachelors/bachelorettes that are hidden from their view.

The questioner could not see their three potential dates so appearance did not factor into the decision. There were a few dates, however, that resulted in marriage.
