One of the classic game shows created by Chuck Barris. In this show, a single woman would be given a choice of three bachelors whom she could talk with, but not see. After asking them a series of questions, she would chose which one to go on a date with. A number of noted celebrities, including Tom Selleck and Jim Carrey, have started out as bachelors on this show. Written by

Comedian-actress Dodie Goodman selected Vern Lanegrasse from the three unseen date contestants because she liked Vern's answers about cats in his Louisianan accent. The show occurred on the same day as the Los Angeles area Northridge earthquake. The show sent Dodie, Vern and the female show chaperon to Acapulco. Flying, changing planes in the Mexico City airport, Dodie ran into a friend who asked her where she was going? Dodie replied "Acapulco" and he said it was "like going to Asbury Park!" The show put them up in the Hacienda Hotel for the week, but because the airline went on strike, their trip was extended another week! Their assigned driver, as tour guide, took them to all the hot spots in Acapulco, where they met many other vacationing star personalities. Their chaperon would disappear leaving them with their own daily adventurous directions and decisions. Dodie, after the first week, was tired of the chaperon always trying to get laid, so Dodie asked their jeep driver if he would screw her? and he nearly wrecked the jeep! See more »
This is the original Dating Show. As it would bring out shows like "Singled Out, Blind Date," among others. But this show is an original as I grew up with him.
Tennessee Ernie Ford announcer and very underrated Jim Lange was the original and best host of the show. As three men or sometimes three women would be out of view except to hear their voices.
As they would base it on personality and character. When they are asked the questions by the bachelorette or bachelor occasionally.
Whoever they feel is the best one will be picked. And they will go out on a date either on a trip or to a night on the town occasionally. With a chaperon in place to make sure that all works out well and nothing bad going on.
A funny show as Chuck Barris, later of the Gong Show and also, would produce hits like Treasure Hunt and the Newlywed Game, would become his first show to place him on the map.
The show way before it's time!
