Syndicated revivals were moderated by Elaine Joyce, Jeff Mac Gregor, Brad Sherwood, and Chuck Woolery.The Dating Game (also known as The New Dating Game and The All-New Dating Game) is the long-running dating game show where one girl or one guy had to choose between three bachelors or bachelorettes to go out on a date for which the producers pay.Generally the bachelorette would ask a series of questions to each of the three hidden bachelors.
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.

Middle row from left: Gloria d’Simone, Allen Fortson, Danielle Schuster, Ellen Van Houten. LAGUNA WOODS – It was kitschy; it was campy; but it was one of the highest rated game shows on daytime TV.
Known for its psychedelic sets and snappy theme song, “The Dating Game” epitomized the “Swinging Sixties.” The show ran on ABC from 1965 to 1973.
Occasionally, the bachelor would ask questions to three bachelorettes.
For this revival's first season, two formats were used.
The questions were written in advance by the producers.
Certain kinds of questions such as name, age, occupation, and income cannot be asked. The bachelorette would make her choice based solely on the answers to her questions.
“Doleen” enjoys collecting Yugio cards, playing linebacker for the Sirens and building her upper body strength.
The question tonight folks…will Doleen pick bachelor #1, (Cole as the Cub Scout will rise and bow before the audience), bachelor #2 (Dustin as the businessman adjusts his glasses, straightens his tie and throws his shoulders back trying to look dignified), or bachelor #3 (Daniel acts too cool, brushes his hair back and gives the “hang loose” sign). Now Doleen ask your questions to our eligible bachelors. My first question to all of you is if I were stranded on a desert island, how would you save me? Doleen, if you were stranded on a desert island I would charter a plane to come pick you up- that is if I’m not in a meeting.
The format will be similar – a single gal/guy asks a series of questions to three unseen single guys/gals and chooses one for an all-expense-paid date.
