Dating show song
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.
When the original format returned to the syndicated revival in 1997, these rules were readopted but there was more of a variety between bachelors and bachelorettes.
The same question could be asked to multiple bachelors. The bachelorette would make her choice based solely on the answers to her questions.
Occasionally, the contestant was a bachelor who would ask questions to three bachelorettes.
For the first season of the 1996 revival, The Dating Game used a different format.
A notable change was that the prospective bachelor/bachelorette knew what the first names of his or her potential dates were at all times.
