After that, the question round was conducted in its usual fashion, with the bachelor/bachelorette picking who they thought had the best personality out of the three.

After the choices were made, the contestant was then prompted to choose between their choice for best looking or best personality.

The same question could be asked to multiple bachelors.

The questions were written in advance by the producers.

The program was revived three additional times in syndication afterwards.

The first revival premiered in 1978 and ran until 1980, the second ran from 1986 until 1989, and the last ran from 1996 until 1999 with a season of reruns following.

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.

Once it was picked, the person in question would reveal the reason behind the fact to the hopeful single.
