TV show description:
On this classic game show, the grand prize is only a paid dinner date but there’s also the potential of winning a partner for a lifetime.

Created by Chuck Barris, each episode of the series features a bachelorette/bachelor who questions three bachelors/bachelorettes that are hidden from their view. Questions range from a variety of topics like, “If we were to be married, what type of unusual wedding would you dream up?,” “What’s the last thing you thought about before you went to sleep last night?”, “I get embarrassed a lot, what are you going to do to make sure I don’t blush on our date?” Off limits are inquiries about a person’s age or income.

When time runs out on the question and answer session, host Jim Lange asks the contestant to choose who he/she would like to share a dinner date with. A standard trademark of the show closes each episode with the host and winning contestants blowing a kiss to the viewers at home.
