Dating game 1974
A Board Game based on the 1986 version was released by Pressman in 1987.
After making her choice, the bachelorette met the two unchosen bachelors before meeting the chosen one.All three of the potential dates had their names revealed before the questioning started as well, something that wasn't done on any version of TDG prior.During a part of the first season, in addition to asking the questions, the bachelor/bachelorette got to see all three contestants at the outset of the game (who all had headphones on so they couldn't hear what their potential date was saying about them), and would pick who they thought was the best looking of the bunch.To wit, the game would feature a boy selecting 1 from the 3 Bachelorettes.The show became an enormous hit with young viewers.Sometimes the guy chosen would be the one chosen for both looks & personality; in later shows when that happened he/she won a 0 bonus in addition to the trip.
This format was mostly disliked by fans of the original show so the next year they switched back to its original format and theme with new host Chuck Woolery at the helm.
For this revival's first season, two formats were used.
The basic format for this show, used throughout the first year, was for the bachelor/bachelorette to pick from two facts about the three potential dates.
More often than not the questions would be of a quirky nature. G.: "If we were marooned on a desert island, what would be the first thing you'd do and why? During a commercial break, the girl would think about which bachelor she'd select.
When the show returned, Jim would have her announce her choice.
The same question could be asked to multiple bachelors.
