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.Before becoming famous, Farrah Fawcett, Suzanne Somers, Yvonne Craig, Lindsay Wagner, Leif Garrett, Tom Selleck and Lee Majors appeared as contestants on the show in the 1960s and early 1970s.Other contestants who appeared before becoming famous included The Carpenters, Jackson Bostwick, Michael Richards, Joanna Cameron, Andy Kaufman (who went under the pseudonym Baji Kimran), Steve Martin, Burt Reynolds, John Ritter, Phil Hartman, Jennifer Granholm (Governor of Michigan from 2003–2010), Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Alex Kozinski.Let's meet contestant number 1 He's a schizophrenic serial killer clown Who says women love his sexy smile Let's find out if his charm will work on Sharon Sharon, what's your question?
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 or for a co-worker or a relative of theirs.
Instead of asking questions of their potential date, the bachelor/bachelorette was presented with two pun-laden statements, each pertaining to one of the potential dates.
When chosen, a new statement replaced the old statement and the potential date explained the reason why that fact pertained to them.
Serial killer Rodney Alcala's episodes were shown during his murder spree and after he had been convicted of assault in California.
Some contestants appeared even after they were fairly well known, including a young Michael Jackson, Dusty Springfield, Ron Howard, Maureen Mc Cormick, Barry Williams, Sally Field, Richard Dawson, Jay North, and Paul Lynde.
Certain kinds of questions were "off-limits", such as name, age, occupation, and income.
