When all said and done, the dating couple went out on a dream vacation which was paid by the producers.Occasionally, the bachelor would ask questions to three bachelorettes.
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 same question could be asked to multiple bachelors.
The questions were written in advance by the producers.

Dating simulation games started gaining popularity in Japan during the 90's.For this revival's first season, two formats were used.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.The 1986 revival was originally hosted by comedienne Elaine Joyce, who was replaced by Jeff Mac Gregor after its first season.The 1996 series was originally hosted by Brad Sherwood, who was replaced by Chuck Woolery following a return to the series' classic format.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 Dating Game is an ABC television show that first aired on December 20, 1965 and was the first of many shows created and packaged by Chuck Barris from the 1960s through the 1980s.ABC dropped the show on July 6, 1973, but it resurfaced in several syndicated versions (1973–1974 as The New Dating Game, 1978–1980, 1986–19–1999; repeats of the last version appeared in the 1999–2000 season.) For years it would almost always be aired in tandem with another Barris production, The Newlywed Game, which premiered on ABC the following year.Once it was picked, the person in question would reveal the reason behind the fact to the hopeful single.After a round of questioning, the bachelor/bachelorette chose their date.
